Black Sea 3 Day Tour

Day 1: Istanbul – Trebisonda – Uzongöl

At the agreed time, we'll pick you up at your hotel in Istanbul and take you to the airport to catch your flight to Trebizond.

Once we get there, we'll visit one of the main attractions in this city located on the Black Sea coast: the Sumela Monastery. We'll explore this orthodox 386 A.C. temple, and discover that this surprising building perched on a cliff is like a miniature city.

The next stop of the day will be in Uzongöl. On the way, we'll make a stop in Sürmene, where you can have lunch at your own leisure. We'll then end the day at the hotel in Uzongöl, where you'll enjoy a delicious dinner.

Day 2: Uzongöl – Ayder Plateau– Zilkale Castle – Çamlıhemşin

First, we'll have breakfast at the hotel and then make our way to the Ayder Plateau, crossing the Firtina Vasidi valley and reach the Gelintülü Waterfall. <There, you'll have to take a walk on your own, enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

We'll then return to the minibus to head to Çamlıhemşin, where you'll have free time for lunch. Next, we'll continue our tour by visiting Zilkale Castle, a medieval fortress built on the edge of a cliff and considered one of the most important constructions on the Black Sea coast.

Our last stop for the day will be Palovit Waterfalls, one of the highest waterfalls in the Kaçkar Mountains National Park - it looks like something straight out of a fairy tale.

Lastly, we'll go to our hotel in Çamlıhemşin to rest and replenish your energy stores with a delicious dinner.

Day 3: Çamlıhemşin – Çayeli – Trebisonda – Istanbul

And so our last day on the Black Sea coast begins! After breakfast, we'll first head to Çayeli. We'll visit a weaving factory, where we'll learn about the many traditional techniques employed for centuries and still used to this day.

Our next stop of the day will be in Trebizond, where we'll go on a guided tour of this port city's old town. We'll visit the Gulbahar Hatun Mosque, the city walls, St. Anne's Church, old town, and, of course, St. Sophia Church.

After having some free time for lunch, we'll drive you to Trebizond airport, where you'll take your flight back to Istanbul. There, we'll be waiting to drop you off you at your hotel in Istanbul.
