An unique tour of the most interesting places on Antalya coast. Tour participants walk on the paths of the Lycian kingdom, and open it for the world, as Lycians themselves did in their times. The Lost World, unique places: idyllic harbors, where fleets of pirates were hiding, wild gorges, where the whole cities lived, fortresses on the mountain tops, and carved out of the same mountains. This is a test of the soul: look at yourself as a particle of a wide world, which was simply not seen for the last millennium. This is a test of the character – you will have to overcome many of the fears and, like a man of antiquity, rise above yourself.
