I'm rowing in Istanbul: Our newest and most rewarding experience

Rowing is our newest and most rewarding experience. Nothing better than discovering a city through an outdoor activity. The rowing takes 1.5 hours.  If you know how to row, we row together. However if you don't know how to row, that's okay! You get thirty minutes beginners class before you start to row.

We start our day- early in the morning- at the rowing club located by the shores of Golden Horn (Haliç in Turkish). Golden Horn has always been the most beautiful landmark of the city for centuries.

Great panoramic view: Historical landmarks of Istanbul

Approximately 8 km long, Haliç is a natural inland of Istanbul dividing European side of the city into two parts. On one side you have the historical peninsula of Istanbul which is former Constantinople: city walls, historical mosques, 19th century old churches, old buildings and great panoramic view. On the other side you have the beautiful Galata Tower raising to the sky.
