Black Sea Trekking Tour

Black Sea Trekking Tour

$1500 / per person
(0 Reviews)

People used to hike to access highlands in the past since there were only pathways to highlands. Everything was sincere and pure in the past. Throughout years, new car roads were built over most path ways to highlands, and today those amazing pathways don’t exist. We look for those routes but we can barely find path ways for hiking to highlands. However, there are still some hiking pathways around Black Sea. We just want to go back and live that sincerity to hike to highlands. Therefore, we designed Black Sea Hiking Tour which covers both popular destinations with hiking activities. You will hike between highlands, transit from north to south of Kaçkar, reach to the peak of Kaçkar, and transit from south to north of Kaçkar from different route. Enjoy peaceful nature of Black Sea, experience local culture, and hike through sincere pathways with Black Sea Hiking Tour.
