There are many things to do in Turkey in the winter, from skiing and winter hot balloon rides to relaxing in open-air hot springs. Discover a magnificent world consisting of snow-covered valleys, quiet cafes with Turkish tea in hand, and soul-warming Turkish hammam treatment to defrost in after a cold day of sightseeing!

Are you planning a trip to Turkey during the off-season? Here are 10 fantastic winter destinations, each with unique cold-weather activities and gorgeous snowy landscapes.

1- Pamukkale

Pamukkale, which is on the World Heritage List determined by UNESCO, welcomes thousands of tourists every year. In addition to its visual richness, Pamukkale is among the cities that must be visited with its travertines and thermal waters that are good for health in addition to many historical cities.

Travertines of Pamukkale

Quiet and white travertines, where you will be at peace from the moment you step in, are the first places that come to mind when talking about places to visit in Pamukkale. This white world, which has become one of the symbols of both Denizli and Turkey, consists of carbonate minerals left over from flowing waters. Immerse yourself in the hot water pools in the white pools of the travertines, which have crystallized with the collapse of the limestone in the water, and enjoy the view while regaining your health. It is also possible to see this unforgettable view with hot air balloons.



2- Bolu

If you think that Bolu is one of the most beautiful places to visit in autumn, then you are at the right place. Aside from its historical structure, Bolu also offers us the natural beauties that will never end.

Yedigöller National Park

As the trees surrender themselves to the shades of orange with autumn, it is time for photographers to photograph Yedigöller. Nature is so beautiful that even an amateur photographer can capture beautiful shots. It would be wiser to choose a time when people could be less. There are two observation terraces at the entrance of the national park. One is on the side of the road and the viewing angle is narrower. You can reach Kapankaya Observation Terrace on foot in five minutes, from which the view is much better. Yedigöller consists of seven lakes. The upper part consists of four small lakes. You can reach the Pythagorean Tree, Wishing Fountain and Smiling Rocks on foot from this top. The three lakes in the lower region are larger. It may take you several hours to walk all three lakes. Before I forget, let me also say that their roads are really winding.

Seben Rock Houses

The Seben region, which draws attention with its historical monuments and beauties, welcomes many visitors every day. Of course, Seben Rock Houses have a great contribution to this. When you arrive, several caves carved into the rock greet you. For now, you can visit three floors of the rock houses. The rooms inside the rocks are really worth seeing. The small waterfall next to the rock houses will also give you pleasant moments. While you've come this far, you might want to go to Seben Lake as well.

Akkaya Travertines

Known as Bolu's Pamukkale, the Akkaya Travertines are one of the must-see spots when you come to Bolu. Especially in summer, visitors prefer travertine pools to cool off. Pools and even small pools where you can just dip your feet are also separated for men and women. Since the water is soda, you can drink it from the source with peace of mind. It is also forbidden to enter the pools on the travertines. They arranged the upper part as a picnic area.

3- Saklikent (Saklı) Yaylası

Due to its proximity to Antalya, it is one of the rare places where two seasons can be experienced in one day. You can reach the plateau from Antalya by a scenic road, 10 km of which is asphalt and 40 km of which is stabilized. There are also ski facilities on Saklıkent Plateau, which is located at an altitude of 1850 m in the middle of the Bey Mountains range in the northwest of Antalya.

4- Gömbe Yaylası

5- Kızlar Sivrisi

The climb starts at sea level, reaching the summit is not something to be underestimated. The highest peak of Beydağları, located in the Western Taurus Mountains, Kızlar Sivrisi is located at an altitude of 3 thousand 86 meters. There is also a legend of the Girls Sivrisi. According to the legend, the children of two kings who were enemies fell in love with each other and the king told their father about the situation and wanted to get married. Of course, both kings did not like this situation at all and opposed it. However, the prince and princess ignored this decision and decided to run away. The princess went to the Girls' Point and began to wait for the prince. The prince, on the other hand, went up another hill by confusing the road. When they saw each other from the opposite hills, the prince set out to go to the princess again. The rest of the story is unfortunately unknown. Either they froze to death or they reunited and escaped. Çamçukuru Valley, on the Antalya-Elmalı road, is the most ideal climbing route for Kizlar Sivrisi. If you are in good condition, you can easily take this route. Note that you need to get permission from Antalya Forestry Management Directorate to climb the Kizlar Sivrisi.

6- Olympos Teleferik

Olympos Cable Car, located in Olympos Beydağları National Park, is at a point where the sea meets the snow. Carrying its motto from sea to sky, the property is located in the middle of sharp steep rocky slopes, lush pine forests and a unique turquoise sea view.
