Take a break from the packed streets and noisy traffic of Istanbul on this day-long escape into the country. Start the day with some adventure in Masukiye: ride a quad bike through the forest, take a zipline through the canopy or just enjoy an easygoing nature walk. Later on, visit the scenic Sapanca Lake for a relaxed lakeside walk and take advantage of the climate with a seasonal activity: exploring the sprawling Darica Zoo in summer or skiing at Kartepe in winter.
