winter on palandoken mountain
Experience a Winter Wonderland
It's true, Turkey is famous worldwide for its historical sights and rich culture, but the natural beauty of this place is not something to be overlooked! Eastern Turkey boasts a gorgeous snow-covered mountain range with some of the finest skiing and winter sports in the region. Palandoken Mountain is unique in that transportation to your ski resort from the airport only takes 20 minutes so you'll be hitting the slopes in no time. With ski runs that cater to the novice beginner all the way up to runs that challenge the professionals, there's something for everyone at Palandoken. There is even a snowpark for those who want to hone their skills and try out some jumps. Ice climbing, star gazing, snowshoeing, paragliding, mountain biking (yes, on the snow!), the list goes on and on of things this mountain has to offer. Weather permitting, night skiing is available as well. For a break from the slopes, a relaxing covered gondola ride up to a panoramic cafe near the summit will take your breath away. Most resorts also offer indoor swimming pools, Turkish Hamams, saunas, steam rooms, and fitness centers.
The beautiful ski resorts on Palandoken have much to offer both the adventure-loving traveler as well as those who just want to relax and soak in the winter wonderland around them. It is no surprise that they have come up with plenty to entice the littlest travelers as well. These resorts offer snow playgrounds, sledding hills, and skiing and snowboarding lessons so the whole family is sure to enjoy their time on the mountain. Many resorts also offer kids clubs with free childcare, so you can hit the slopes while your kids have fun and warm up inside.
Skis, snowboards, sleds, and any other winter gear you may need are available for rent on the mountain. The season is open from December 1st through March 31st. Contact us to start planning a perfect winter vacation!
