Balikli Gol & Uzungol Private Tour: Tour begins with a visit to see some knife artisans. These knives are handmade and still used in the black sea area.
Followed by an opportunity to see tea growing on a tea plantation which has been running since 1917. The black sea area is well known for its' tea production which benefits from an ideal climate for its' cultivation. We will see green tea and how it grows. . . for those interested, this is followed by an hour's horse-riding (optional and extra cost).
The tour then moves on to Uzungöl, with scenery rivalling the Alps with its' steep slopes and glorious forest cover. The lake which is located at the middle of the valley at an altitude of 1090m was formed by a landslide which blocked the stream bed. The houses in this area blend into the scenery and complete the beauty of the area. Here guests can enjoy pure, clean air with free time to relax and a visit to a waterfall. Afterwards, the tour moves on to Balikli Gol situated on the top of a mountain wth superb views and magnificent scenery. After lunch we begin the journey back to the hotels.
