Oranganis have supplied information on two parts of the Lycian Way

The Lycian Way
Report of  twelve sections of the Lycian way: the Lycian Way is the first long distance, marked trail in Turkey, between the cities of Fethiye and Antalya, in the south west of the country.

The route follows Greek and Roman roads, aqueducts, traditional nomad roads, goat’s paths, forest paths and local paths connecting villages. The route has a close relation with remains from the earlier inhabitants and visitors: the Lycian people, the Romans, Crusaders and Arabs.

There are great panoramas of the Mediterranean. And all that in a fantastic landscape and  - in spring - tolerable temperatures.
