Snow, Skiis and Spas: Your Guide to Winter Sports in Turkey

 

If you're looking for the perfect place for an international winter vacation, look no further than Turkey. With its winter season running from early December to April you'll have plenty of time to visit the country's hottest ski resorts and then relax in one of Turkey's many natural mineral baths and hot springs.

Skiing on majestic snow-covered mountains is probably the most popular winter sport in Turkey. While there are many ski resorts to choose from in Turkey, Mount Uludag, near Bursa, is arguably the one of the finest. Declared a National Protected Area in 1961, Mount Uludag offers beautiful scenery along with plenty of your favorite winter sports. Skiing, snowboarding, heli-skiing, ice skating and snow biking are sure to delight any visiting winter sport enthusiast. After a long day on the slopes, head back to Bursa for a soothing dip in one of their many therapeutic hot springs.

Palandoken Mountain is another great place to spend your ski vacation. Located only five kilometers from Erzurum, the ski resort at Palandoken Mountain can be reached in ten minutes by car. Skiers can rent equipment, schedule time with an instructor, or even try their hand at heli-skiing.

To really get away from it all, head to Kartalkaya, a ski resort in the Koroglu Mountains. Kartalkaya, just fifty kilometers from Bolu, is surrounded by beautiful pine forests for a communing-with-nature ski experience. The resort has great slopes, a ski lift, and the nearby hotel boasts a heated indoor swimming pool for end of the day relaxation.

These are just a few of the many excellent and state-of-the-art ski resorts and facilities available in Turkey. Many of the resorts offer heli-skiing for a more personal and selective ski vacation experience. Snowboarding, ice skating, and snow biking are also available. With multitudes of attractions, activities, and relaxing hot springs, let Turkey be the premiere destination for your next winter vacation!
