After breakfast at our hotel, we move to Uzungöl and make our first visit to a tea factory on the way. We learn the story of tea making and the secrets of brewing the best tea, and then we take a shopping break at the factory outlet. While we are ready to start shopping, we take a short shopping break at Sürmene Knife factory outlet on the road. We set off for Uzungöl again along the Solaklı Valley and arrive in Uzungöl, accompanied by the beauties of traditional village houses, tea, and hazelnut gardens.

We start our visit in Uzungöl with the Observation Terrace, then visit the Artificial Waterfalls built to protect the lake from floods.

Day 4- Sumela Monastery, Karaca Cave and Hamsiköy Village 
For the first visit of the tour, we move to Sumela Monastery located in Altındere National Park. After about an hour's journey, we arrive at Altındere National Park. We continue our journey in the national park with shuttle vehicles. For the last 300 meters, we arrive at Sümela Monastery by using a path through the forest. If you wish, you can take a short break in the cafeteria right next to the monastery, or you can start visiting the Sumela Monastery immediately by using the tickets you bought from the national park toll booths.

After your visit to the Sumela Monastery, which consists of guard rooms, library, kitchen, guest and student rooms, holy spring and the main rock church, we return to our tour vehicle with the National Park services.

Day 5- Trabzon City Tour
We start the Trabzon City Tour with a visit to the Atatürk Mansion, which is one of the most beautiful examples of the city's civil architecture and where Atatürk stayed during his visits to Trabzon. We visit the Villa, which is decorated with the most luxurious and original furniture of the period, and then, after spending time in its wonderfully designed garden, we move to Trabzon Botanical Park.

Trabzon Botanic Park, established on 103 decares of land, is the first and only botanical garden of the Black Sea Region. After the joyful time we spent in the park with its rich plant variety and social areas, we move to Trabzon Aquarium. The project, which has the distinction of being the first aquarium in a tunnel in the world, was planned to connect the Zagnos and Tabakhane Valleys. Along the way, you can see the panoramic view of Trabzon Castle, Gülbahar Hatun Mosque and Tomb, Zağnos Valley, Historical Zağnos Paşa Bridge and Ortahisar (Kaleiçi) District. After the aquarium visit, we are moving to Trabzon City Museum.

After visiting the Trabzon City Museum, which presents the history, folklore and trade of the city from ancient times to the present in chronological order, we move to the Hagia Sophia Mosque.

Hagia Sophia, which is used as a mosque today, was built as a Byzantine church in the 13th century and has a unique value with its early Renaissance frescoes. After seeing the Hagia Sophia Mosque, historical frescoes and many historical artifacts in its garden, we move to Sera Lake Nature Park for lunch. After a lunch break at a local restaurant in Sera Lake, we move to Boztepe Observation Terrace for a bird's-eye view of the city.
