About Full-Day Sapanca Lake and Masukiye Tour

Take a detour away from the responsibilities and stressors of everyday life, and slip into a dream-like journey along the  Gulf of Izmit and the freshwater lake of Lake Sapanca.

 Walk along the breath-taking Lake Sapanca as you catch glimpses of the sun peeking through the waters, straight after being picked up from your hotel in the city center. Lake Sapanca is known for its scenic beauty and is located on a tectonic hole between Izmit Bay and the Adapazari Meadow. After saturating your soul with the scenic beauty of the lake, continue this surreal journey as you visit the picturesque village of Masukiye. We lunch under a tree canopy straight out of countryside paintings.

We then drive on to a majestic waterfall in the Masukiye and continue making the best of this unreal day. We conclude this packed day with a Hike to the Kartepe mountains or, if you prefer, take the ski lift. Discover popular spots for summer picnics and winter ski breaks around every corner as we wind up the evening.
