Perfect Autumn Break in Turkey
With winter slowly creeping in, warmer climates have never been so inviting. Hold on to some sunshine for a while longer and travel to Turkey, where the weather is still reaching mid-twenty degree Celsius bliss.
Late autumn is a great time to opt for walking holidays in Turkey; the school holiday crowds are waning away and the climate of many Turkey regions are truly pleasurable, providing an ideal environment for self-guided walking holidays.
The Lycian Way offers the most comfortable destination and is an ideal visit during autumn. The route of the Lycian Way can reach very high temperatures during the summer; we do recommend for those who wish to enjoy the Lycian Way walk without the hot weather to visit from September-November, and February-May – although of course the Lycian Way walking route can be enjoyed throughout the year.
Enjoy your autumn holiday in Turkey at your own pace, leisurely relishing long breakfasts before hiking out toward historical sites, snapping away for the photo album back home. Imagine sleeping in wonderful, carefully selected local Turkey accommodation – with no hot water bottle needed!
The Istanbul winter won’t set in until mid-December, so don’t pack away your summer flip-flops just yet. Consider a city break in this bustling city, overflowing with cultural sites, wonderful food and warm, friendly local people. In Northern Turkey, The Black Sea Coast boasts a continental climate; although the best time to visit the golden stretch of the Black Sea Coast is undoubtedly in the summer months.
Our seven night, self-guided walking holiday of the Lycian Way (option 1) will take you from the beautiful town of Ovacik all the way to Patara. Here, after hiking through a plethora of towns, villages and stunning sights, you can even visit some beautiful beaches – a real treat for winter months.
So before those cold nights creep in and winter sets foot at our doors, why not travel to Turkey for a walking holiday adventure?
