Difficulty Level: Easy but requires some arm muscle power. You'll be 3 people in each canoe. Canoeing is a very strengthening and entertaining experience. The trip lasts about Protected content but 2 hours of it is a relaxing experience at the islands. You can sun tan & swim in this trip.

If you are a bit bored with regular city stuff nowadays and looking for some challenge, you can escape to nature with us for a refreshing and relaxing weekend experience. We will be at The Lake Terkos to canoe, swim and enjoy numerous beautiful virgin beaches. Located in Durusu National Park close to The Black Sea shore, the area is a niche for water loving things like fish, frogs, toads, water beetles, and wildlife. There will be many fully bloomed white water lilies among water bushes and it will be a real fun to canoe among them. Considered by many as the jewels of the water, water lilies are not only beautiful to look at, but they also serve an important purpose, mainly in aiding the ecosystem of the area.

While canoeing, we will paddle from one small island to the other. No previous experience required. Our guide who is a previous navy officer will teach us the tips, tricks and basics of canoeing before we go on the water. A local safety boat will also follow us during the expedition.

When you canoe you become a 'a child of nature.''  Become a child yourself again and paddle across serene waters of Lake Terkos. Life moves in perfect unison with the sights and sounds of the wild as you guide your canoe across brilliant blue-green waters full of water lilies.  Join us for a great excursion to enjoy the stillness of the water, the crispness of the air and the serenity of the aquatic plants.

Price includes: Breakfast at the lakeside+canoe rentals+local safety boat+guide+transportation+travel insurance up to Protected content .
