The 850 km Carian trail is the longest of Turkey's long-distance trekking routes. Located in the south western part of Turkey it runs through the provinces of Muğla and Aydın, passing by numerous monuments from the Carian civilization that thrived in this region during Antiquity. The region has its own unique architecture and many ancient villages, untouched coves, hills full of olive and almond trees, and ancient cities, some of which are only accessible on foot. This guided tour takes in the Bozborun Peninsula, one of the 5 sections of the Carian trail. Leaving busy tourist centres such as Marmaris behind, we hike from the blues of the sea to the greens of the hills, starting on forested slopes above Kumlübük and slowly making our way to the more barren hillsides of the southern part of the peninsula. We pass sleepy coastal towns and traditional mountain villages, on the way enjoying the ever changing, amazing views.
