Mediterranean region’s charming green paradise, Sapadere Village, is situated 179 km from the capital of Turkish tourism, Antalya, and just 41 km away from one of the most beautiful holiday towns in Turkey, Alanya. From Alanya travel 2O km east, take a left turn off of the Alanya-Gazipasa-Mersin main road into Demirtas Village, pass through the Village and follow the signs until you arrive at Sapadere Village. Sapadere Canyon is 360 metres long, nearly 400 metres high and is located 3 km away from Sapadere Village. The canyon is formed by erosion from water, ice and wind. The layers of rock were formed over thousands of years. Wooden walkways make for easy access for all visitors. The walking platform is sympathetically designed and constructed from wood and steel. The platform is environmentally friendly and can be removed when necessary. You will be amazed by the rapidly gushing water over series of rock steps, the numerous waterfalls, rare plants and different species of animals and birds when walking through this natural habitat. The clean, fresh air and cascading turquoise water over the rocks is therapeutic and refreshing on the human spirit…after all, don’t forget that water means life! At the end of the pathway, 300 meters inside the canyons entrance, you will find the most spectacular point; the marvellous waterfall. This is a popular spot for visitors to take photos and it is also possible to swim in the natural pool at the bottom of the waterfall. The brave can reach the water by jumping (not recommended!) or using the surrounding step-ladders to enjoy the refreshing water. We really mean refreshing as the water barely reaches 12°C even in the peak of the summer!
Cappadocia lies in eastern Anatolia, in the center of what is now Turkey. The relief consists of a high plateau over 1000 m in altitude that is pierced by volcanic peaks, with Mount Erciyes (ancient Argaeus) nearKayseri (ancient Caesarea) being the tallest at 3916 m. The boundaries of historical Cappadocia are vague, particularly towards the west. To the south, the Taurus Mountains form the boundary with Cilicia and separate Cappadocia from the Mediterranean Sea. To the west, Cappadocia is bounded by the historical regions of Lycaonia to the southwest, and Galatia to the northwest. The Black Sea coastal ranges separate Cappadocia from Pontus and the Black Sea, while to the east Cappadocia is bounded by the upper Euphrates, before that river bends to the southeast to flow into Mesopotamia, and the Armenian Highland. This results in an area approximately 400 km (250 mi) east–west and 250 km (160 mi) north–south. Due to its inland location and high altitude, Cappadocia has a markedly continental climate, with hot dry summers and cold snowy winters. Rainfall is sparse and the region is largely semi-arid.

Located in the center of the Old World, Istanbul is one of the world’s great cities famous for its historical monuments and magnificent scenic beauties. It is the only city in the world which spreads over two continents: it lies at a point where Asia and Europe are separated by a narrow strait – the Bosphorus. Istanbul has a history of over 2,500 years, and ever since its establishment on this strategic junction of lands and seas, the city has been a crucial trade center.
The historic city of Istanbul is situated on a peninsula flanked on three sides by the Sea of Marmara, the Bosphorus and the Golden Horn. It has been the capital of three great empires, the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman empires, and for more than 1,600 years over 120 emperors and sultans ruled the world from here. No other city in the world can claim such a distinction.
During its development, the city was enlarged four times, each time the city walls being rebuilt further to the west.
Surrounded by 5th century Roman city walls and stretching over seven hills, Istanbul is adorned by the masterpieces of Turkish art, the great mosques of the Sultans that crown the hills. The city presents an exquisite, majestic and serene silhouette from all directions. The Golden Horn, which is a very secure natural harbor, has played a significant role in the development of the city.
Fortune provided such advantages to Istanbul as a location at a junction where the main overland routes reach the sea, an easily defensible peninsula, an ideal climate, a rich and generous nature, control of the strategic Bosphorus, and a central geographical position in the ancient world.
