  • Description


    We have established a base for trail exploration and maintenance in a small house in Sidyma, on the west part of the Lycian Way. Nearby is a house belonging to the village that we have restored as a cultural space with a small exhibition.
    It has a screen and projector, exhibition space and facilities for drinks.
    We want to encourage the use of this space for workshops, social activities, etc. This means developing tour or workshop programmes with travel agencies, etc.
    We also want to make films about life in the village, starting with the olive harvest. We have the necessary equipment.
    There are plenty of trekkers passing through and they will be grateful for your work. Some of the work (eg film editing) can be done in Antalya.
    If you would like to live in Sidyma and work with us please get in touch for a zoom call.

    We will not be doing any more fieldwork except in this area for a few months.


    Our society aims to maintain Turkey’s 22 existing culture routes, to encourage the establishment of new trekking trails, and to set standards for the best practises for their development.

    Culture routes are a means of deepening cultural understanding—both within Turkey, where city-dwellers are separated by space and life-style from their rural past, and by showing international trekkers aspects of Turkey’s culture that would normally find difficult to access. The Society brings benefits to the areas through which the routes pass, by involving local people in the routes, especially in identifying old roads and by offering them the chance to host trekkers in their homes and pensions.

    Turkey's first long-distance trail was the Lycian Way, launched in 1999; it runs between Fethiye and Antalya in SW Turkey. User numbers grew rapidly and thousands of people have enjoyed this trail; it encouraged other enthusiasts to establish trails too. There are now 18 culture routes in Turkey, and we are developing more.

    We have just finished the first stage of an ambitious project to develop a long-distance route which links Europe to Asia. Starting in Canterbury, UK, the Via Francigena runs all the way to Rome. The new project will extend it to Bari, then across the Adriatic to Albania then Macedonia and Greece before entering Turkey. It will finish at Demre, on the south coast of Turkey. We are now preparing for other projects in different areas of Turkey.

    Our house at Sidyma will be a base for volunteers helping on clearing paths in the area and for developing socio-cultural programmes..

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    In Sidyma: Good opportunity to practise basic village Turkish, learn village crafts (beekeeping, carpet making, herb gathering, etc), explore woodland and hills. You will need initiative, and will learn quickly, as the villagers only speak Turkish.
    In Antalya: enjoy life in a busy city with opportunities for arts, festivals, and beach activities.

  • Aide


    Normally, we offer 2 types of help: office tasks and field work.
    Field work is required when we need to make or renew way-marks, finding new paths, cutting and clearing scrub, etc.
    Office tasks generally involves website and social-media maintenance, RU-EN-TR translations, organising events, etc.

    However, we currently need specific help developing the cultural centre and helping the villagers to run it. The work includes setting up social media sites, contacting travel agencies, devising tour programmes, etc. Also making and editing films. You can plan and organise the work as you like - part can be in Antalya, part in Sidyma
