With the warming of the weather, the summer vacation plans, which were dreamed throughout the winter, started to be carried out. Although the coronavirus pandemic, which we have been under the influence of for some time, has paused these plans, we can now make safe holiday plans come true by switching to controlled social life due to the control of the pandemic. Of course, since the risk continues, we prefer safe and secure accommodation facilities in nature, with open spaces for our vacation plans. And of course, isolated locations away from the crowd are our first choice. Therefore, in this article, we have included such a suggestion for you. Here is a special alternative for those who want to have a calm and nature holiday in the summer months: Sapanca!
Located within the borders of Sakarya, Sapanca is frequently preferred for both weekend getaways and long holidays due to its lush nature and proximity to Istanbul. This beautiful location allows you to mix with nature without getting too far from the city. Moreover, there are many activity options you can do in Sapanca.
