Many peerless destinations in middle and eastern Turkey attracts local and foreign tourists.Tens of thousands of tourists visit Turkey’s winter tourism centers every year such as Europeans, Russians etc.
As I mentioned in my previous posts, Turkey is mostly known for its specific, superb summer vacation opportunities.But its very suitable geography is increasing Turkey’s worldwide winter tourism popularity every year.
Uludag, Kartalkaya, Elmadag, Saklikent, Palandoken, Bolkar, Hazarbaba, Zigana, Erciyes are several most known and popular winter tourism centers of Turkey.With their peerless ski resorts, these places are to offer an excellent winter vacation.Besides the resorts and ski centers, all year long snow having high mountains of Turkey is also a very good destination for mountain climbers, adventurers, snowboarders.
