Tour possibilities from Fethiye are :
Tlos and the Saklikent Gorge :
Travel through picturesque rural Turkey to explore the Lycian, Byzantine and Ottoman ruins at the ancient city of Tlos, supposed home of Pegasus the winged horse. Tlos is an ancient ruined Lycian hilltop citadel, one of the oldest and largest settlements of Lycia and was subsequently inhabited by Romans, Byzantines and eventually Ottoman Turks, making it one of few Lycian cities to be continually inhabited up until the 19th century.
Then discover hidden Saklikent Canyon : Saklıkent Canyon (“Hidden City” in Turkish) is 50 km from the city of Fethiye. The Canyon is 300 meters deep and 18 km long, one of the deepest in the world, resulting from the abrasion of the rocks by flowing waters over thousands of years. As the level of water rises during winter months, visitors can enter the canyon only in the summer. Four kilometers of the canyon are walkable after April, when most of the snow in the Taurus Mountains has melted and passed through on its way to the Mediterranean Sea.
Patara and Letoon :
Patara was a flourishing maritime and commercial city on the south-west coast of Lycia. It is the birthplace of St. Nicholas, who lived most of his life in the nearby town of Myra (Demre). Possessing a natural harbor, Patara was said to have been founded by Patarus, a son of Apollo. It was situated at a distance of 60 stadia to the southeast of the mouth of the river Xanthos..Patara was noted in antiquity for its temple and oracle of Apollo. The site is currently being excavated during two summer months each year by a team of Turkish archaeologists. At the end of 2007, all the sand had been cleared from the theatre and some other buildings, and the columns on the main street had been partially re-erected (with facsimile capitals). The excavations have revealed masonry in remarkable condition. Apart from its ancient ruins, Patara is also famous for the 18 km-long Patara Beach.
Letoon was a sanctuary of Leto near the ancient city Xanthos that was one of the most important religious centers of the Lycian region in Anatolia. The site is located between the towns of Kaş and Fethiye. Archaeological finds at the site, which remained essentially a religious centre, date back to the late sixth century BCE. In earlier times, the site was probably already sacred to the cult of an earlier mother goddess— she is Eni Mahanahi in Lycia— which was superseded by the worship of Leto, joined by her twin offspring (Apollo and Artemis).
