North Eastern – Turkey Photographic Experience
This challenging route skirts the new St Paul Trail over high mountains and through deep canyons from the little-known Turkish Lake District towards its destination in the Koprulu Canyon near the Mediterranean coast. It passes through some of the greenest parts of the Taurus mountains, some of Turkey’s most impressive canyon scenery and the mountainous homelands of Yoruk nomads. It’s a true voyage of discovery and our most varied expedition- perfect for those with a thirst to discover what’s around the next corner!
