Turkey in winter is stunningly beautiful. The snow makes for an ideal setting especially in Capadoccia where the brown of the landscape lifts up against the white of the snow. The winter is not too extreme in Istanbul where it might rain but the spirits are forever high and the city has a different peace, which is absent in the summer. This tour aims at capturing the essence of Turkey in winter and concentrating on the two most important tourist places in the country but without being too touristy!
