Kartepe Ski Resort

Located just 115 kilometers from Istanbul, the Kartepe Ski Resort is the closest ski resort to the megacity. The summit of the tree sea leads you to the ski resort with views of Lake Sapanca and the Gulf of Izmit.

Kartepe is the third highest point in the Marmara region, winning the district status with the union of seven bands in 2008.
