Ilgaz Vacation Packages
Ilgaz is located some 80 miles (129 kilometers) from Ankara, the country's capital.
Ilgaz isn't the only spot in Northern Anatolia that is worth exploring; DIY travelers should drive a little further out to experience the special qualities of the surrounding landscapes, towns and cities. Kursunlu, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the east, and Cankiri, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the north of Ilgaz are also worth visiting should you have the time.
Spend a day in the sunshine and fresh air and enjoy Northern Anatolia's many open-air museums. Exercise your grey matter at Northern Anatolia's wonderful history museums and nature museums.
If you're not one to go on vacation simply to shuffle between the buffet and the bar, Northern Anatolia offers a number of outdoor-adventure activities such as mountain climbing and hiking.
Traveling to a place involves so much more than simply taking in the sights, it's also about the poetry, song and story of a place. Your time in Northern Anatolia will become infinitely richer if you take the time to try some common phrases and sayings in Turkish. One example of a useful sentence is "Benimle dans eder misiniz?" (Would you like to dance with me?). Or try "Nerelisin?" (Where are you from?).
When you are ready to finish up and say "Hoşçakal" to Ilgaz, you'll have many great memories and photos.
