Things To Do in Turkey

EuropeTurkeyThings To Do in Turkey

While Turkey is rightly known for its warm Mediterranean beaches, winter sports, especially skiing, are possible – and even popular – in the mountainous interior between October and April, with a stable snow cover and constant below-freezing temperatures guaranteed between December and March. Some ski resorts further east have a longer snow cover.

The most popular winter resorts are Uludağ near Bursa, Kartepe near Izmit, Kartalkaya near Bolu and Ilgaz near Kastamonu in the northwest of the country, Palandöken near Erzurum and Sarıkamış near Kars in the northeast of the country, and Erciyes near Kayseri in the central part. Saklıkent near Antalya is considered one of the places where you can ski in the morning and swim in the warm waters of the Mediterranean along the coast in Antalya in the afternoon, although the period of snow cover in Saklıkent is desperately short, so this does not happen every year.
