Full description

After meeting and meeting with your guide from your hotel or at the address you want, we move to Sumela Monastery. We arrive at Altındere National Park with a pleasant journey of about 1 hour. We continue our tour with minibuses for the National Park. We arrive at the Hagia Varvara Church, our first tour stop, by the Sumela Monastery and the service terraces, where the best view of the valley and the most beautiful photographs are taken. After visiting the church and watching Sumela from here, we reach the Sumela Monastery on foot through the 300m forest path.

[Due to the restoration, Sumela Monastery will be closed between 03 November 2020 and 31 January 2021. For this reason, monastery can only be seen from the outside.]

We leave Sumela Manstir after visiting the sections that have been completed and opened to service with the local licensed guide since 2015. We arrive at the National Park Social Facilities with the minibuses that we reach on footpath on foot. In Altındere National Park Facilities where restaurants, country cafes and souvenir shopping facilities are located, we meet in our vehicle after sufficient free time and move to Trabzon. After your arrival at your hotel or your desired address, our services end and we bid farewell to meet you on another trip. .
