Joined by the narrowest of margins to Europe, Turkey can justifiably claim to be the point at which Western and Eastern cultures meet. More than simply the destination for a Mediterranean sunshine holiday, Turkey is blessed with a rich history and culture which its friendly inhabitants are always proud to share with visitors.
Discover Turkey with a bespoke itinerary from GRJ independent and explore a wealth of natural beauty, memorable sights, and one of the most unique and exciting native cuisines in Europe.
The first thing that will strike you as you make your way through Turkey by train is the variety and beauty of the country's scenery.
Approximately half of Turkey's area is forested, but the central region, Anatolia, features an almost unearthly terrain of naturally formed rock pillars, caves, and chimneys. This arid but spectacular landscape provides a sharp contrast to the wooded hillsides and verdant olive groves that feature largely elsewhere.
