Sapanca, a Center of Attraction in Winter Tourism

Even though Covid-19 lost its former impact on our lives, the desire to live among greenery and in a region with plenty of oxygen continued. Those who wanted to escape from the chaos of the city with one-day getaways were replaced by new settlers who wanted to move to that area for good.

The regions where this increase in demand, which is seen in every location in Turkey, was most experienced were Çanakkale and Sapanca.

Demands continue to increase every year in Sapanca, which continues to be a four-season tourism attraction with Ormanya, Maşukiye, Sapanca Lake, Kartepe Ski Center and the cable car system that embraces the views that will amaze those who see it.

Sapanca, which promises a local life on the edge of big cities, is one of the most popular locations.
