Experience some of the clearest waters in the Mediterranean along Turkey's Turquoise Coast
Follow a portion of the famous Lycian Way walking path by water - it stretches 509 kilometres from Fethiye to Antalya!
Discover the historic city of Aperlai, including ancient ruins both above and below water
Explore caves, tunnels, arches and bays as we complete a range of beautiful coastal swims and challenging crossings
Relax and soak in the world-renowned Turkish hospitality in the lovely seaside village of Kaş
Based in the small coastal village of Kaş, we spend the week exploring countless caves, tunnels, arches, and bays. Our swims will uncover the area’s most isolated beaches, scattered archipelagos and ancient sites perched on hilltops.
Our main boat for the week is a traditional Turkish ‘gulet,’ which is an ideal way to experience this part of the world. The gulet is also where we will enjoy the fresh, traditional Turkish lunches which are served on board between your swims – a highlight for many SwimTrekkers! There is plenty of room to stretch out as well and relax under the sun while you are out of the water.

The Lycian Way SwimTrek was a great trip and challenge for me. I didn't expect to be able to swim such distances in the sea. All the suggestions for my swimming really helped me improve my skills. I met fantastic people. It was really a pleasure and great fun!Marta, Italy - 2023
SwimTrek have put together an amazing location to swim with highly experienced boat crew, exceptional guides and the whole experience was silky smooth, challenging, life changing to some extent. The experience because of the level of detail applied by SwimTrek, far exceeded my expectations. I loved it all!Brett O, Australia - 2023
This trip was truly incredible. The water is so clear and a turtle even lead us on on of our swims one day. Kas is such a cute town and the swims were so enjoyable. Crossing from Greece to Turkey was definitely a highlight. And our lunches on the boat were delicious. I’m looking forward to doing other SwimTreks but I may have to do this one again because it was so great.Lauren J, USA - 2023
The Lycian way is spectacular: swimming with turtles and over ancient ruins was an experience that I will never forget!Till Ottlitz, Germany - 2022
I'm three trips in and puzzling over how this company can exceed my expectations so drastically every time. The kind of guests these trips attract are my kind of people...Edmund L, UK - 2022
This was just the most fantastic trip ever - warm clear waters, lots of fish and sights to see, brilliant guides, beautiful food and great people.Louise C, UK - 2022
