Explore some lesser-known sights of Turkey on this nine-day small-group adventure through the north eastern Anatolia region. Soak up the history of Istanbul before flying to Kars, near the Armenian border, exploring the ruins of Ani, then travel along the Black Sea through the historic towns of Amaysa and Safranbolu. From sampling regional specialties like saffron-flavoured Turkish delight to relaxing on the Black Sea’s coast, the history buffs, food lovers and sun seekers will delight in the rustic splendour of Turkey. Highlights/r/n
  • Kars, a transit point between Anatolia and the Caucasus, is a region with quirky little villages and unique architecture coupled with stunning scenery.
  • Explore the UNESCO-listed ruins of Ani. Once a stately Armenian Capital, Ani is now an abandoned city with crumbling structures lying out on a windswept plateau.
  • Indulge in a Cag Kebab, which originates in the eastern Anatolian province of Erzurum, and taste the unique flavour of saffron Turkish delight along the way.
  • Stroll along the Black Sea in Amasya, feasting your eyes on the beautifully preserved Ottoman houses dotted along the banks.
  • Enjoy a feature stay in the traditional Ottoman stately dwelling of a konak in the Heritage-listed Safranbolu – the entire village is a museum!
