Turkey Hiking tours: Best hiking trails in Antalya

Trekking should be a normal lifestyle to be healthy, not just sports. To be healthy, our muscles need to be healthy and strong. Working muscles are healthy, but working muscles on nature walks are much healthier.

Experience the Antalya mountain hike from Tahtali mountain summit (altitude: 2365 mt) to Beycik village (altitude: 800 mt)!

We are hiking down the 2365 mt summit called Tahtali Mountain, which is located near Kemer in western Antalya side in the Taurus Mountains of Antalya region. The route is about 9 km and the height difference is about 1565 mt. The walk takes about 5 hours with amazing views. In very comfortable and slow walks, the walking time is about 6 hours.

How do we do it?
First we pick you up from your hotel and go to the Olympos cable car sub station near Kemer in western Antalya. Our journey to Olympos cable car sub station passes for national parks covered with pine forests.

We will reach the summit of Tahtali Mountain at 2365 meters with a wonderful cable car ride that will take about 11 minutes. The word "Tahtali" means "wooden" in Turkish. Many years ago, wooden fragments of ships were found at this summit. For this reason, this mountain with the highest peak in this region is called Tahtali.

The cable car ride to the summit takes about 11 minutes with amazing mountain and sea views.

When we reach the summit, we'll take a half-hour coffee break. You will admire the spectacular views from the summit terrace and perhaps you will give up the nature walk :)

Our walk from the summit will start at around 11:00 at the latest towards Beycik village, located at 800 meters below. The first 45-minute walk slope is not steep, but after 45 minutes we will take a 45-minute steep slope course. These areas are without trees but are stone and rocky. We'll have to cross the steep slope course, which will take about 45 minutes, slowly and carefully.

When we reach a height of approximately 1500 meters, the slope will return to normal and we will have our first break for food and drink. After a half-hour break, we will continue our walk down into the cedar forests. The walking route from here to Beycik village will continue in the forest. The slope is relatively steep, but allows for comfortable walking.

After about 1.5 hours, we will take our 2nd break at a height of 1000 meters in a natural mountain cafeteria for hikers. From here we will enter the last part of our walk and our walk to Beycik village will take about 1 hour.

Our trekking will end at 16:00 in Beycik village. We will return to your hotel after a short tea break in a cafeteria in Beycik village.

Tour is organised with minimum 2 people. 1 person with full payment is also possible.

Next week, on Thursday, July 14 or Friday, July 15, we can make a descent walk from Tahtali summit (2365 mt) to Beycik village for you. Best regards, Vigo Tours
Hello, Thank you very much for contacting us. Lycian way mountain hiking tours are usually done as private tours. Unfortunately, Tahtali summit (2365 mt) Beycik descent route cannot be made due to heavy snow on the summit and hiking path. We can determine a trekking route according to your walking performance status. Please write us a little bit about your hiking history. And how many of you are for trekking? How km hiking do you want to do? Kind regards, Vigo Tours
Hello from Vigo Tours, Thank you very much for contacting us. Mountain hiking in Antalya will be costly for 1 person. However, Tahtali cable car will be in annual maintenance between 21 March and 21 April. For this reason, unfortunately, the mountain hiking route from Tahtali to Beycik will not be possible. Instead of the Tahtali Beycik mountain hiking route, we can recommend the Beycik Kuzdere route (17 km) or the coastal route from Tekirova to Çıralı (18 km). Beycik Kuzdere route passes under Tahtalı peak (with 1400 meters peak). The price for both mountain hikes is 250€ in total. This price includes pick-up from your hotel, transfer, mountain hiking with a hiking expert guide, and drop-off at your hotel. Best regards, Vigo Tours

A perfect mountain hiking day!

With my wife and two children, we wanted to be in touch with nature and be in nature one day during our Antalya holiday. We found Vigo Tours on Google. Mountain hiking programs attracted our attention. We sent an email to Vigo Tours. They gave us all the details and necessary information. We made our reservation. We were picked up from the hotel on time and we went about 1 hour by minibus. The driver (name: Mehmet) was also our mountain hiking guide and spoke English very well. We traveled to the top of a mountain with the cable car ride lasting about 15 minutes (included in the price). Our guide gave us all the information carefully. We took a break of 15 minutes at the summit. The view from the summit was great. Our descent mountain hike started around 11:00. Our mountain hike continued in perfect weather, scenery and wonderful silence. Our guide walked ahead and we followed him. He advised us to walk carefully without speeding up our tempo. We passed a section of steep slope, which lasted about 1 hour, very carefully. We reached an altitude of 1500 meters around 13:00 and cedar forests were beginning there. Old cedar trees are incredibly beautiful. We took a lunch and drink break here (everyone brought their own food and drink). Approximately half an hour later, we went into the forest and continued our descent mountain walk at a slow pace. We reached a mountain natural cafeteria on our route and drank hot herbal tea there. This cafeteria is made of natural materials. There were other people taking a break on the mountain hike there. We arrived at a village around 16:30. We were very tired. We took a break for a while in a cafeteria in the village, we rested. Then we returned to our hotel by minibus. We definitely recommend this mountain hike. Being in nature is incredibly relaxing. Our guide knew every meter of the mountain hiking route very well. Your mountain hiking shoes should be good and if you are not well-trained for mountain hiking, it is very important to walk at a slow pace. Our guide said this route is one of the Lycian way route. The Lycian mountain hiking trail was about 550 km with many routes. On our route, we saw mountain hikers walking uphill. We took many photos...




It was very rainy but had great experience!

It was a great nature day! There was light rain at the summit, when we entered the forest, thunder and heavy rain started. Mehmet, our guide, got wet completely, but continued to walk without any complaints, even with pleasure :) We loved it! We had our raincoats, but our guide didn't even have a raincoat, just a round cap :) When we got further down, our guide took us to a place with a goat pen on our route, and we went there to a small wooden house with walls covered in nylon. Our guide knew the shepherd man. The man welcomed us very friendly. There was a wood stove inside and it was hot. It was a small living area, but there were about 5 other mountain hikers inside :) we took a 1 hour break there and our clothes took a little drying. The goatherd man (name: Durmus) offered us tea. We all felt wonderful naturalness. We thank Vigo Tours for this magnificent nature and mountain hike, which is the most memorable of our lives.
