1. Trabzon: Uzungol Lake Day Tour with Lunch
Your tour will begin with pickup from your hotel in Trabzon. From there you will travel to Uzungol, which takes approximately one hour. As you travel from Trabzon you will visit a tea factory, which will provide you with a look at the way fresh tea is grown and harvested. You will also be able to buy fresh tea to take with you. Once you are done learning about the hectic life of tea makers, you will visit the Surmene knives and gift shop. There you will see the hard work of master craftsman of the Surmene region, as well as their handcrafted blades. These blades have been forged, folded, twisted, and hammered, until a unique blade is finished. After a lunch break you will be free to discover the Uzungol area by yourself. You may like to rent a pedal boat on the lake, or can instead opt to follow one of the hiking trails for a chance to see some of the impressive local wildlife. In the evening you will return to Trabzon, where you will be dropped off back to your hotel.
