The Eco Trails - Waymarked hiking and cycling routes of Caria and Lycia.
The ECO Trails are long-distance, waymarked hiking and cycling routes in Köyceğiz-Ortaca-Dalaman region in SW Turkey developed to promote ecotourism. The primary focus is on its unspoiled nature and conservation.
Routes follow the "water", the main source of life. As doing so, they raise awareness on significantly rich flora and fauna, some endemic and endangered; they use tracks and roads from times when the human couldn't destroy nature; they connect ancient states of "Caria" to "Lycia" and ancient cities of Kaunos, Pisilis, Lydae, Octapolis, Daedala to Telmessos, Kibyratis and others.
The ECO Trails are at your service to discover the local gems, to bring a new breath into your life, and - most importantly- to keep an eye on nature.
Hiking and cycling routes presented here take you to the region’s natural and cultural values, which will enchant you; some routes will make you tired, yet they will help you get a healthier life. We hope they will help you enjoy life, too.
Welcome to the ECO Trails!
