With the warming of the weather, summer vacation plans dreamed of during the winter began to come to life. Although the coronavirus pandemic, which we have been under the influence of for a while, has postponed these plans, we are now able to turn into a controlled social life and turn safe holiday plans into reality. Of course, since the risk continues, we prefer safe accommodation facilities in nature with an open area for our holiday plans. Of course, isolated locations away from the crowd are our first choice. That's why we have included such a suggestion for you in this article. Here is a special alternative for those who want to have a quiet holiday in nature during the summer months: Sapanca!
Located within the borders of Sakarya, Sapanca is frequently preferred for weekend getaways and long vacations due to its lush nature and proximity to Istanbul. This beautiful location allows you to mingle with nature without getting too far from the city. Moreover, there are many activity options you can do in Sapanca. Considering the pandemic, which is our current agenda, Sapanca appears as a safe holiday option with its clean air and isolated accommodation facilities in the province.
What to do in Sapanca?
There are many villages and plateaus in Sapanca. For this reason, there are quite enjoyable and authentic breakfast places for visitors in these regions. You can start the day with a wonderful village breakfast in Sapanca. Then, you can digest what you eat and witness unique views by taking a bicycle tour around Sapanca Lake, which adds beauty to Sapanca.
For those who do not want to ride a bike, we recommend a canoe tour on the lake! In this delightful lake where the Rowing National Team does training, you can have a good time by renting a canoe.
