National Parks

National parks are literally defined as natural areas with rare cultural values, and there are 44 picturesque national parks for you to visit in our country.

From underwater wonders to high mountainous areas and ancient historical places, these parks offer a variety of landscapes and a wide range of exciting outdoors experiences to visitors. The national parks are great places to escape from the crowd and stress of the city life.

National parks are particularly important for species that need relatively large and undisturbed areas to survive, such as wild reindeer, predators and birds of prey. Many of these are at great risk from human intervention and some are even threatened with extinction. Turkey has an international responsibility to look after endangered species and their habitats.
