Black Sea Trekking Tour

9 Days
Private Tour
3 Star Hotel, 4 Star Hotel

Throughout the years, new car roads were built over most pathways to highlands, and today those amazing pathways don’t exist. We look for those routes but we can barely find pathways for hiking to the highlands. However, there are still some hiking pathways around the Black Sea. We just want to go back and live that sincerity to hike to highlands. Therefore, we designed the Black Sea Hiking Tour which covers both popular destinations with hiking activities. You will hike between highlands, transit from north to south of Kaçkar, reach the peak of Kaçkar, and transit from south to north of Kaçkar from different routes.
