5 Off-the-Beaten-Path Destinations on Turkey Tours

 When most people think of Turkey tours, they think of well-known places like Istanbul, Cappadocia, and Ephesus. These places really are beautiful, with a lot to see in terms of history, culture, and nature.

But Turkey is a big and varied country with much more to offer than its most famous sights. Have you ever considered going to places that aren't as popular for a unique experience? This thought can especially appeal to people who want to learn more about Turkey than just its most popular tourist spots. You don't have to look very hard in this beautiful country to find secret gems.

Together with TurcoTravel, we've put together a list of five places to visit in Turkey that aren't as well known. These places promise a more personal and private experience, but they still have the rich culture that Turkey is known for. So, if you want to go to Turkey for 7 days or more, read on for some useful tips.

1. Akyaka: A Tranquil Riverside Retreat
Akyaka is a peaceful place to go if you want to escape it all. It lies on the south-west coastal side of Turkey. Akyaka has a variety of water sports, like kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding, thanks to its beautiful rivers and mountains. The original Ottoman style of the wooden houses in Akyaka adds to the charm of this quiet place.

2. Amasra: The Black Sea Gem
If you're sick of the Mediterranean and Aegean shores and want to try something new, you could visit the Black Sea area. A small fishing town called Amasra is the perfect place for tourists to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Turkey. You can visit old castles, eat fresh fish, and see views that differ from those in the Mediterranean.

3. Sığacık: A Fortified Village
One of the Cittaslow cities in Turkey, Sack is part of the Seferihisar area and is committed to a slower pace and better quality of life. This fortified town has streets with cobblestones, a weekly farmers' market, and historical ruins for tourists who want to see how people live in Turkey.

4. Mount Ararat: For Adventure Enthusiasts
Those who are interested in Cappadocia Tours might want to try something different and go on a journey to Mount Ararat. Turkey's tallest peak is Mount Ararat.
