WESTERN BLACK SEA INVITES YOU TO AN INCREDIBLE ADVENTURE WITH ITS RELENTLESS NATURE AND HILLS

Western Black Sea offers a unique cycling holiday with its abundant greenery, distinctive geography, and dense pine forests. You can explore a wide area by staying in different cities every day. Don't be afraid of the long hills; there are so many beautiful places to visit that you'll be resting at these break points we can add between rides.
We definitely include the hidden natural wonders nestled within the lush greenery of the Black Sea region in our program. In Horma Canyon, you'll traverse from one end to the other on a 3.5km walking platform and cool off at the waterfall at the end. At the observation terrace of Çatak Canyon, you'll experience the true sense of height as you step onto the glass platform. You'll pedal through the pine-covered Küre Mountains, take a dip in the Black Sea along the coast, and savor fish in the famous Gideros Cove. We carefully select our accommodations in places like Amasra and Safranbolu, which have their unique architecture and history, to experience the region's special charm and &lavors.
