Traveling viaEurasia by Sea
Wooden sailing/motor boats still ply the coast of Lycia and, as a change from walking, you could complete some stages of your journey by sea. Some agencies offer complete holidays combining day-trekking with living on a gület and cruising along the coast.
Sea canoeing is a commonly available activity along the coast of Lycia, and you could take time out from your trek to canoe along the Lycian coast, exploring the route and ruins.
The current terminal of the Via Eurasia, Demre / Myra, has a maritime association with Bari in Italy. St Nicholas (Santa Claus) was bishop of Myra and after his death was buried in the local church. In 1192, merchants from Bari seized his bones and interred them under their new cathedral. In future, we expect our associate agencies to offer sailing holidays connecting these two ports.
