The Best Hostels and Tree Houses in Olympos (Blue Cruise)

The Best Hostels and Tree Houses in Olympos (Blue Cruise)
Olympos was an ancient city in Lycia. It was situated in a river valley near the coast. Its ruins are located south of the modern town Çıralı in the Kumluca district of Antalya Province, Turkey. An important Lycian city in the 2nd century BC, Olympos is more famous these days for being the beach resort of choice for backpackers. Staying in an Olympos 'tree house' at one of the dozen-or-so camps that line the 1.5km-long track along the valley down to the ruins and beach has long been the stuff of travel legend. The former hippy-trail hot-spot has gentrified considerably in past years and during summer can be pretty overcrowded and institutionalized. Olympos still offers good value and an up-for-it party atmosphere in a lovely setting. Just remember that 'tree house' is a misnomer; most huts are very firmly on the ground. With all of these fabulous attributes, Olympos is a great place to visit, and, there are also some great, budget-friendly accommodations to use as a base for exploring.
