Kalkan, Turkey

Experience hosted by Özgür

4 hours, Hosted in English

What you'll do

We will meet at Kalkan bus station at the scheduled time, take local bus and we will get off at the intersection closest to the starting point of our walk. After a 5-minute walk from the asphalt road, we will arrive at the Roman aqueducts, our starting point.
We will walk about 2.5 hours along an 8km route. We will reach Patara Ancient City by walking along the ancient aqueduct carrying water from the mountains to the ancient city of Patara. It is quite pleasant and comfortable for families to walk easily.
At the end of our walk I will take you on a historical journey in the ancient city of Patara. We will explore the ancient city, which is the capital of Roman Lycia, with its all ancient structures and stories.
The ancient city of Patara is a national park due to the diversity of birds it hosts and the beach is the breeding area of caretta-caretta turtles. Also the turkey's longest beach is located here.
At the end of the day, (according to seasonal conditions) we will go to the café on the beach and have a drink, then get back to our starting point.

Hi, my name is Ozgur. In 2009, I started my career as an adventure tours guide, I have guided hiking, sea kayaking, mountain biking and canyoning tours. Later in time I improved myself in archaeology, I got my professional guidance license and I started to do archaeology and cultural tours.
I organize hiking, archeology and adventure trails for small groups in the best spots of Lycia where we can trace the civilizations that have lived here for thousands of years.
I first learn everything about guiding and archaeology in Lycia. A geography where I know every inch and every stone, but every time I get a different pleasure and discover something new. I will be pleased to share this pleasure with you.

During our experiences we follow all the guidelines of the local authorities regarding Covid-19

We were entirely delighted with Ozgur's guided hike along a Roman aqueduct, down to the Roman city of Patara, and then to a lovely sand beach. He had excellent English and kept up a fascinating running commentary. If it is hot out, bring plenty of water.

I had my first hike ever with Ozgur! It was an amazing experience! I loved the diversity of the trail, the information that was shared by Ozgur about the place, and the overall experience. Thank you Ozgur for making my first hike great, I am looking forward to many more hikes in the future!

The trip was so much fun, the views were breathtaking. Ozgur was kind enough to customize the hike length to our skill level.

This is our second experience with Özgür. We took his advise and came to Patara for walking on the Lycian Way. It was a very pleasant walk the mythological stories and tales of local culture added a different color to our journey. His knowledge of history is pretty good, and passionately connected to the Lycian region. At the end of the walk we made a trip to the ancient city of Patara and the unique beach was worth a visit. He is a great person, I wish we could take Ozgur with us :) All the best for you my firend...

Honestly, Thanks to Ozgur, It was best two days and activities during my trip to Turkey - a true highlight. Ozgur was the best host, I felt very safe and you can feel certain that you are in for a great experience and route. Above all, such a cool man with lots of experience! He was very passionate about what he does and he has big plans for the future, I wish him well!

Ozgur is very organized, funny and a great tour guide and a hike leader. Before our trip, he explained in details what we should expect and everything was exactly as he described. The walk itself was great, we have started to walk on Roman Aquaduct and reached to Ancient city of Patara. Archeological site and the sandy beach was amazing. He took us up to sand dunes for sunset, it was like a dream. He is gentle and very helpful. If you like some peace and history, this is a must do when you are in Kaş or Kalkan
