Hiking the Carian Hinterland 1 (Carian Trail, Turkey)

“The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain.”
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The Carian Hinterland is one of the five sections of the 800-km-long Carian Trail that runs through Southwestern Turkey.

If you like the idea of combining hiking and Turkey and you have some two weeks of time, this is our tip: hike the Carian Hinterland. Depending on your level of fitness and speed it may take 8-13 days (we took 11).

Simply fly to Bodrum, take a bus to Bozalan and hit the trail.

Hiking the Bozburun Peninsula (Carian Trail, Turkey)

Slow Hiking the Carian Trail on the Bozburun Peninsula, a view from the coast

“For the walker the remoteness is ripe for exploration and with a lack of roads the old trails and paths have been cleaned to access every viewpoint across the sea to the Greek islands of Symi and Rhodes. The Trail routes through a diversity of terrain with many changes of scenery and magical views round every corner. There are many traditional villages eking a living from the rugged landscape along with coastal villages catering for the demands of tourism.”
