Ready to Join?

Difficulty Level: Over Moderate since walk is a bit long but geography is suitable for easy walk. ~Approx. 4.5~5 Hours including breaks. 12 KM. One uphill. Rest is vast lands and long downhill at the end. Many of you have walked this long with us before.

We will walk on the highest points of the region and move from one farm land to another in between the villages from North to South. In the last stages of the hike we will witness the most breathtaking views of Lake İznik. Also, an interesting surprise awaits us at the end of the hike. Those who want to swim in hot springs can do that since the outdoor sulphur spring lake ~a natural pool~ is hot enough to keep you warm. We have seen hikers jumped into it even with hiking outfits :). Our stay will be at a 4 star wellness hot springs spa close by in the area where we can also enjoy an outdoor jacuzzi at night after dinner while we slowly cook our red mulled wine with spices & fruits. On the second day of the trip, you may join to our relationships therapy group. However, some of you may want to enjoy the beauty & massage treatments of the wellness hotel, swim in indoor hot spring pools ~no sulphur~ and enjoy a slow Sunday. Afterwards, we will enjoy the lake in another location, again on the west end of it. Join us to see another side of Southern Marmara if you haven't seen it before. Let's keep away from the ordinary and celebrate ordinary moments of health, friendship & laughter.
