Whether you prefer a luxurious or standard ride, there's an option to fit every budget.

Additionally, the duration of your flight varies. You can book a 90-minute ride or extend it to two hours for a more immersive experience of the breathtaking scenery.

Traditional Turkish bath

A visit to a hammam (traditional Turkish bathhouse) is a must-do experience while in Turkey.

Indulge in a steam bath and scrub session that will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Typically, the package includes a 45-minute wash and scrub with a handmade sponge (Kese), followed by a relaxing massage. It's a therapeutic experience for both body and mind.

Skiing

For an adrenaline rush amidst Turkey's stunning landscapes, consider skiing.

There are numerous excellent skiing destinations across the country, such as Kartepe, Karatlı, and Erciyes, offering snowy slopes for skiing enthusiasts.

Some locations even provide opportunities for sea skiing, combining skiing with water travel.

Experience a natural sauna in thermal pools

Pamukkale's thermal pools are a natural wonder of Turkey, offering a unique and rare sight.

Immerse yourself in the natural hot thermal springs, which are rich in limestone and form various hole-like formations.

Locals believe that the water in these pools has healing properties and can alleviate various ailments such as eye, skin, and respiratory conditions.
