Difficulty Level: Very Easy.
Geography: Woods of Natinoal Park. Forest walk on earth paths. After the hike you can choose to join a culture walk in town with our professional guide. 5km./1.5 hr.

An island of culture in the middle of a giant Nature Park, Polonezköy in the wooded hills of Beykoz is just a hop, skip and jump from Istanbul, and we are heading there to walk in a fun trail there.

Our hike will start from the National Park's famous wood trail and will end in a spot outside Polonezkoy. On the first half of the walk we wilI hit the five-kilometer-long hiking trail in The National Park. It’s so peaceful that you will immediately feel like surrendering to nature. The sunlight is filtered through the leaves of pine, fir, oak, hornbeam and chestnut trees. The sound of the leaves crunching under your feet will be like music to your ears! At the end of the park we will follow a natural narrow path along the stream and the second part of the hike, we dive a bit more into the the Autumn forest. The stream in Polonezkoy Nature Park is not remarkable for its size or high current. The opposite – it is the quietest and the laziest stream you can imagine. But exactly this makes the stream and its surroundings so serene and special: it is a bird paradise with pretty fall fiona on the way, we can see birds, and we could hear the birds singing, lizards run away here and there, turtles make crushing sounds with the dry leaves, frogs scream crazily in ponds as the narrow paths keep us leading from one beautiful sight to the other as we dive deep into the forest...

You can also choose not to hike but take another walk in town with our professional guide or hang out in the garden~which is a rented property where we will have BBQ ~have a drink and listen to a reading about fall Quotes & passages from books related to fall from a writer.

Polonezkoy promises a perfect day with its virgin nature, mixed culture and Polish influence.

"Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall".
