This tour is an ideal tour for everyone who loves nature and archaeology as well as unspoiled beautiful landscapes, away from tourist routes. The region of Pisidia is located in the Taurus Mountain range, and the ancient cities figure in a wildly beautiful mountain landscape. However, they are rarely visited and therefore an easy target for looting.

Equinox Travel & BIAA have worked on the Pisidia Heritage Trail project since 2013 and builds on results of the Pisidia Archaeological Survey Project directed by Stephen Mitchell and Lutgarde Vandeput.

The resulting long-distance walking trail is ca 350 kilometers long and connects 9 archaeological sites as well as picturesque mountain villages. Many of the walking paths reflect ancient roads in the area. The trail is designed to attract hikers and nature lovers, adventurers in general, and to increase benefits for the communities who live by these ruins. This in turn is expected to result in increased protection of the sites by the local communities against illicit digging.

The paths and walks on our hiking tours may not be suitable for people who are used to walking on a flat road, the routes consist of steep descents and ascents, paths on stony and slippery ground, and easy forest paths in places.
