Founders Update: Flash Pack is back, together

Turkey trips

Embark on a solo adventure to Turkey, where you can sail the Mediterranean one day, wander through Ephesus’s ancient ruins the next and end every day watching the sun set while feasting on 'real' kebabs

Why travel solo to Turkey?

This dazzling country unites classical architecture and azure coastline with breathtaking scenery, and wraps it all up in Turkey’s famously warm hospitality.

A network of speedy internal flights allow you to hop between the country’s plentiful hotspots. From dining on fresh fish and cruising the Med, and visiting the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Pamukkale and Ephesus, to bathing in the thermal waters of the Cleopatra Pools and soaking up the dusky hues of Cappadocia’s fairy chimneys; Turkey is a country that packs a punch. 

Its metropolitan areas hold their own, too – a stroll through Istanbul’s atmospheric streets will gift you minarets, mosaics and mosques, not to mention the heady aromas of the spice bazaar and the fascinating cultural artefacts at Galata Mevlevihanesi. And of course, a trip to Turkey isn’t complete without indulging in its rich food heritage, from gözleme pitstops and pottery kebab banquets, to a spread of meze washed down with a bottle of the country’s tasty fruit wine.

Our Turkey trips

Top places to visit in Turkey

FETHIYE

Perched on the shores of the Mediterranean sea, this city will give you the coastal Turkey you’ve dreamed about: turquoise waters lapping golden sand at The Blue Lagoon, a seafood supper on the edge of open air fish market, and the departure point for the fascinating Lycian Tombs.

SELCUK

Famous for some of the world’s best preserved classical sites, the pretty countryside town of Selçuk is where you’ll be able to immerse yourself in Artemis Temple, Isa Bey Mosque and St. John Basilica and Ephesus.

CAPPADOCIA

Home to the pastel fairy chimneys, which rise up from the ground and cover the landscape. The best way to experience them is up high in a hot air balloon, and from the driving seat of an ATV – both of which you can do with us.

Istanbul

Byzantine, Genoese, Ottoman, and modern Turkish architecture collide in Istanbul’s impressive skyline. When you’re not ogling beautiful buildings, you’ll be nosing around markets, learning about the nation’s rich cultural heritage and dining at some of the country’s best restaurants.
