A message from Kate Clow….. As you all know, Turkey is currently home to over 2 million people fleeing from the civil war in Syria. Most are concentrated in the South-East, where there is also a military presence, so we don’t recommend using the south part of the Abraham Path at the moment. Our other routes are not affected by the situation, and trekkers are continuing to use them. Don’t be deterred from planning your holiday here; if you need advice, mail us. For a walker’s impressions, check out Candace’s adventures. If you call into our office you may meet our Syrian friends, and you can try the new Syrian vegetarian restaurant around the corner.
Finally, the Turkish Culture and Tourism Ministry is leading a new investigation into methods of legally conserving the Lycian Way and other routes. Have a look at our blog page to find out more. Happy trekking, Kate
