Luxury Holidays in Turkey

Turkey’s unique position, geographically and historically, has turned it into one of the most fascinating, enlightening and relevant countries to visit for a luxury holiday. Straddling two continents, Europe and Asia, the country has the rare feature of being two things at once. Cities such as Istanbul and Ankara are developing and modernising rapidly while the countryside holds fast to its traditional values.

The expansive and diverse country provides such a plethora of attractions and activities, it can be dizzying to consider all options. Mediterranean good looks, cosmopolitan culture, wonderful cuisine, and the remnants of ancient empires are but just a taste of what awaits. The key to get the best out of Turkey is to know what type of adventure you seek.

Are you enticed by endless white sandy beaches lining the Mediterranean? Is exploring archaeological sites or architectural wonders of mosques and temples your objective? Does watching the golden sunset over the grand Istanbul skyline sound appealing? Or would you rather soar above the landscape of Cappadocia on a hot air balloon come sunrise? Do you want to get your hands dirty in a cooking class on Turkish cuisine, or get your feet wet soaking in the mineral-rich waters of Pamukkale? This place has something for everyone.

Lightfoot Travel’s consultants never tire of exploring this beautiful and culturally rich country. Let us use our own experiences to design a tailor-made itinerary that’ll best open you eyes to the mystery and glory of this old Ottoman Empire.
