Istanbul, Cappadocia and Lycian Way – A superb holiday that was very well organised. Everyone we met was so welcoming…
The Black Sea Region Turkey is the least known tourist destination we promote, it is unspoilt, rural, traditional and well worth exploring. The Kackar Mountains provide a stunning backdrop and places such as Amasra, Rize and Trabzon, pretty seaside towns that retain lots of character.
The Black Sea Coast has a higher rainfall average than the rest of Turkey and so is very lush and green, it is a prolific tea and nut growing region, particularly hazlenuts . The region is also ideally suited to travelers with a keen interest in history and culture. There are many early Christian sites and ancient trade routes to explore. There are some wonderful buildings such as Sumela Monastery, built into a cliff face and decorated in religious murals.
