Difficulty Level: Medium (due to efforts to hop over small or big rocks, walk through very narrow paths) otherwise 5km walk along valley type canyon. Requires balance & caution. You must be ready to face all challenges that a canyon may present and not be surprised.

The water of Tacir Canyon located in the southern skirts of Mt. Samanli runs through both sides of the beautiful mountain. These two springs then join the two stream running from Sansarak Canyon and flow into Lake Iznik. Canyon we will walk is located 11km northwest of Iznik at a lovely Village called Tacir. Actual length of it is 15km but we will walk only one third of it.

We will walk in a very beautiful and untouched nature to find out three gorgeous waterfalls. If we are lucky to have sunny weather, we can even swim in the stream ponds (called witches bowl;) and in natural lagoons surrounded by forest plants. We will hop over the rocks, make 3 stream crossings (bare feet), and walk on the natural pathways of deep forest. Our guide will be a local trekker who discovered the canyon route, Since then all trekking groups are using his map.

Join us for an extraordinary visit to the hearth of natural beauties. Join us for friendship & laughter ;)
