The region around Sapanca has become very important for day trips and weekend vacations with its charming natural beauty. Sapanca Lake is located on a tectonic hole, which is situated between Izmit Bay and Adapazari Meadow and runs parallel to Iznik Lake. Sapanca and the surrounding areas are suitable for visiting all the year round though it is especially popular during the summer months. Here you will find restaurants, tea gardens and plenty of walks around the lake itself. The area surrounding the lake is attractive and there is plenty of wildlife as well as forest areas. Enjoy a fresh fish meal which is literally on the lake at KÄ±rkpinar which is about 4 miles from Sapanca.
