Hi Albert,

The Black Sea coast is never crowded because cloud is more common than sun,and the sea water is chilly.But that'sfine with the adventurous types who come here for a few days to savor its deep history,its dramatic beauty,its special cuisine,and its prime legend:Jason led his Argonauts along this coast in quest of the Golden Fleece.Concentrate on the coast east of Sinop,a fortified town with a long history.The coast's prime destination is Trabzon (Trebizond).Other towns worth a look,or good for an overnight are Ordu and Giresun.Samsun is big, bustling and mostly modern, with lots of services but little to see.Starting from Amasya,you can drive 130 km (81 miles, 2 hours) north to Samsun,then continue 365 km (227 miles, 6 hours) to Trabzon, enjoying the scenery, all in one day, but two days is obviously more relaxed, and three gives you the time to explore in detail.From Trabzon, head up into the mountains to the alpine spa and hiking village of Ayder,then up onto the Anatolian plateau with Erzurum as your goal.The short route is via Gümüshane and Bayburt,the longer and more interesting route is via Rize,Hopa, Artvin and Yusufeli in the Kaçkar Mountains.

Turkey's Black Sea coast comes as a surprise
The coast's prime destination is Trabzon (Trebizond). Trabzon is also a good base for visiting surrounding sites such as Sumela Monastery, the alpine village of Ayder, and the tea-growing towns such as Rize to the east.Other notable churches include the Church of St Anne (Küçük Ayvasil , 885), St Eugenius (Yeni Cuma Camii, 1200s) and Panaghia Chrysokephalos (Fatih Büyük Camii, 1200s).

Other towns worth a look, or good for an overnight are Ordu and Giresun. Samsun is big, bustling and mostly modern, with lots of services but little to see.go from Trabzon up into the Kaçkar Mountains to Artvin, Yusufeli or Erzurum on the Anatolian you the The Kaçkars , the northeasternmost range, their slopes plummeting into the Black Sea.
In the steep, fertile valleys, farmers in villages and small towns make a precarious living from their fruit (especially apricot) and nut (especially walnut) orchards, mountain fields and pastures more inormation you can find on .

Greetings Tom Holleman
We have been organising trekking tours in the Kackar mountains.If you visit our website, will see that it is the best place to travel in the blacksea region of Turkey.
Sumela Monastery,maybe a quick visit in Sinop,check out Rize,i loved it,when i visited
As my family is from rize,in Black Sea and I often visit this region I honestly an say that it's aaprt from the heaven.I visited all regions of my country and most of it.ı beleive its the best of Turkey with nature, nice,funny,friendly people,atmosphere...
ı SUGGEST NOT to join a professional tour.
As I know the region well, I recommend to visit TRABZON,RIZE AND ARTVIN cities. These are on the east of Black Sea Coast.AWESOME!!
Best time to visit this region is from middle of May until October. When everywhere very hot in summer it's cool in summer.
When u decided to come,u can ask me for detail information.
It would sound a bit boring but spend a day or two in nommadic summer camps. They are not totally nomadic, some people live there whole year long but usually, spending summer in high mountains is a routine for many local families.
