Sufi Hike Caravan to Rumi in Konya

Special opportunity to hike with the creators of the Sufi Trail. We will start in Istanbul and hike to the tomb of Rumi in Konya. It’s to promote the pilgrimage lifestyle and also to submerge ourselves into the deeper meaning of the Sufi Trail. We start on the 8th of May 2022 and end our 40 days hiking caravan on the 24th of Juni 2022.

We will mainly camp outside. The philosophy of this caravan is to revive the old way of travelling on foot, to Konya. Everyone can join the caravan and pays for their own daily expenses. This can be food, accommodation and other costs.

As it’s a camping caravan bring your tent, only in big city’s we will have simple accommodations if needed. We like to leave a positive impression to the people along the Sufi Trail, this means we can have special cleaning days were we pick up trash along our way. Also, there can be marking days where we make road-signs with red and white paint. The green is for the green Sufi arrow.

This caravan is initiated to get easy access to start hiking this wonderful Anatolian landscape in the safety of the ancient tradition to travel together.

Together we make a caravan to Rumi!

You’re fellow pilgrims speak English, Turkish and Dutch.
