More Info

While the most popular rock climbing in Turkey is undoubtedly along the scenic southern coast, heading farther north to the mountains is a real treat as well. Ilgaz Dağları is a popular ski resort in the winter, but offers ample climbing opportunities in the summer.

Heading into central Turkey is highly advised as well. While the climbing may not  be as great as either the north or the south, heading up in a balloon will blow you away. The detour is well worth it and you will not be disappointed taking in this magnificent landscape from above.

The northeast also boasts plentiful climbing and stunning views. Heading up Kaçkar Dağı, which is one of the most popular summits in the area, offers great views into the Black Sea as well as down into the surrounding valleys.
