Full description

Depending on your reservation preference, we start our day tour with our private car at the time you want from the hotel or an address in Trabzon Center.

We are moving to Sumela Monastery, which is located in Altındere National Park. (The restoration works that have been going on since 2015 have come to an end and the monastery has been opened to partial visits in 2019.) The Sumela Monastery, which is located on the steep slope of Montenegro rising from the valley, can be reached by the minibuses in the National Park. After the free time given for the visit to Sumela Monastery, we meet in our vehicle and move to the Historic Zigana Pass. We give our lunch break at a local restaurant on the road.

Zigana Pass, one of the most important passages of the historical Silk Road, has been the door of East Anatolia and Iran opening to the West throughout history. We see the Zigana Tunnel, then we arrive at the Karaca Cave located within the provincial borders of Gümüşhane. After a visit to Karaca Cave, which is an art gallery with stalactites, stalagmites and travertines, we take a break at the factory outlet store that sells the famous Pestil and Köme of the Black Sea.

Our next stop is Torul SkyWalk Terrace where the height of the adrenaline will be intense. After the SkyWalk Terrace visit, we move to Hamsiköy the Historical (Old) Zigana Route for testing its famous rice pudding (sütlaç).

At the end of the day, we arrive in Trabzon before Zenofon Tours, where our tour started, and we bid farewell to meet on another trip.
