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 Karadağ Mount rising from the valley, can be reached by local minibuses in the National Park. After the Sumela Monastery, Altındere National Park visits and enjoyable time in the valley, we meet in our vehicle and move to the Historic Zigana Pass. We recommend you to have your lunch at a local restaurant in Zigana.

Zigana Pass, where many famous travellers like Mark Polo travel, is one of the important places on the Historic Silk Road. After seeing the Zigana Pass at an altitude of 2050m above sea level, we move to Hamsiköy. After a visit to Hamsiköy, which is famous for its natural beauty and rice pudding, our tour ends in Trabzon and we bid farewell with the hope to meet on another tour.
