What to expect

This tour starts departing from your hotel around 8.30am. You'll be on the ride for an hour to reach our first stop, the Darica Zoo. This conservation center is home to around 200 different species of animals, hundreds of different types of plants, an aquarium, and a petting zoo. Next, you'll visit the Sapanca Lake, where you can enjoy a relaxing stroll along its scenic shores, a great spot to try to capture the moment with some pictures and admire the number of villages and mountains reflected in its waters.

Later you'll explore the pretty lakeside village of Masukiye, where you'll be served a traditional Turkish lunch under a canopy of trees beside a waterfall. After viewing the waterfall up close, you'll head to Mount Kartepe, which is a ski resort in wintertime, but you can enjoy stunning views across Lake Sapanca all year long. You can also ride the chair-lift to the peak of the mountain for an additional cost.

You'll start your drive back to Istanbul around 6.00pm and be back at your hotel around 8.30pm.
