TrekRight: Lycian Way is a comprehensive, incredibly handy mobile app for anyone walking all or part of the Lycian Way, Turkey's beautiful 400+ km / 250+ mi walk along the Turquoise Coast. This rugged, exhilarating walk is filled with stunning scenery, amazing ruins of ancient civilizations, incredibly friendly people, pristine beaches, delicious food, and more.
It includes an in-depth reference 'Trekopedia' (communities, pensions / hotels, attractions, services, points of interest, etc.), supports customizable routes, interactive maps (including detailed offline maps), directions and section-by-section guide, dynamic trip stats for your current section, stage, and route, an intelligent compass that shows the right direction based on your current location and chosen route, and more.
--- Trekopedia ---
TrekRight’s ‘Lycian Way Encyclopedia’ is packed with extensive reference information, organized into Communities, Accommodation, Attractions, Services, Points of Interest, Route Sections, and Articles. Everything can be searched and filtered, viewed on a map, notes can be added (anything from a simple reservation number to a copy-and-pasted blurb from a website), and more.
--- Interactive Offline Maps ---
TrekRight has detailed *offline* map imagery showing your current location on your selected route along with pins showing all the locations included in the Trekopedia (just touch a pin to open its related Trekopedia entry). Our offline maps mean you don’t require Internet access to use the mapping functionality. Online maps are also available for when you have an Internet connection. Easily filter and do searches. Scroll, zoom, and rotate the map. Completely transform how you ‘see’ your surroundings on the Lycian Way.
--- Intelligent Compass ---
In addition to all the standard compass functionality, TrekRight’s intelligent compass also points you in the right direction based on your current location and your selected route, and updates dynamically as you move. Never get lost again!
--- Pre-Departure Planning & Preparation ---
TrekRight makes it easy to plan your route (including configuring the sections you want to follow), organize it into stages, and review distances and elevations (including a handy interactive Elevation Profile Chart). Comes pre-defined with popular routes (full and partial). Review and rank hotels / pensions, flag locations of interest as ‘favorites’, add your own notes, and more.
--- Up-To-Date Content ---
TrekRight’s content is regularly updated and expanded based on the latest information available to us. You can check for content updates directly inside TrekRight and download our database whenever it is convenient for you (even on the trail), without having to connect to the App Store. Always be up to date!
--- No Internet Connection Required ---
All of TrekRight's content is stored directly on your phone, including our detailed offline maps. No Internet connection is required unless you want to use the online maps.

Ratings and Reviews
Lycian Way hiker? GET THIS APP!
Excellent app. It made my Lycian Way hike a success. I was unable to get a copy of the Kate Clow guide book before my trip to Turkey (it ships from Britain) and had to rely entirely on what I could find online for guidance. In addition to prefetching some web sites, I downloaded this app along with three other more general purpose offline hiking/mapping apps to my phone. I ended up using this LycianWay app almost exclusively because it had everything I needed -- maps, water sources, accommodations, cultural information, distances, trail-aware compass and even a progress meter for each section.
Not all of the LW is well marked with the red and white blazes. Several times on my hike I wandered down a crisscrossing goat trail and had to rely on this app to guide me back toward the LW. Without it I would have spent many frustrating hours backtracking and searching for the right track.
If you are planning to walk all or part of the LW you should get this app. It's all you need (just be careful to not drop your phone).
