Group accommodation in Turkey at HI group hostels
One of the top 10 destinations in the world, Turkey is a must-visit place for all types of groups. Renowned as being extraordinarily rich in history, Turkey boasts the most archaeological sites in the world. Anatolia is the birthplace of many civilizations, empires, historic figures and legends and is home to one of the oldest known human inhabited areas in Çatalhöyük, Konya dating back to 6500 BC. Ephesus (Temple of Artemis), City of Troy, Cappadocia and the cave church of St Peter are among some of the countless important sites to visit during your stay.
With a stunning coastline, there are endless opportunities for groups to try out all manner of watersports and with a Mediterranean climate providing more than six months of summertime, there is plenty of time to have a go!
For foodie groups Turkish cuisine is among the best in the world. It is a fusion of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes. There are many culinary delights like Turkish tea, Turkish coffee and the famous Turkish delight. And make sure you don’t miss the Baklava!
And for those groups looking for a little more of an adrenalin-fuelled adventure, you can try hiking, trekking, mountain biking, river rafting, scuba diving, windsurfing, wave surfing, kite surfing, paragliding, parasailing, skiing or jet-skiing. Of course those groups visiting in need of some retail therapy won’t be disappointed. With the traditional Turkish carpet, high on the list of purchases, there is also an abundance of exotic spices, designer stores, ceramics and scents which often become part of the souvenir shopping.

Istanbul – Buzzing with vibrancy, the largest city in Turkey is one that most groups will want to experience as Istanbul is the pinnacle where east meets west and two continents collide. Top of the list for attractions is the Grand Bazaar, one of the world’s largest covered markets and where you can literally spend hours being dazzled by the traditional crafts and goods on offer. Remember your calculator and your haggling skills – this is where the world of bartering started!
Split into districts, there are museums galore for groups looking to discover the rich historical past of this part of Turkey. And of course no visit to the city would be complete without a visit to the Blue Mosque.
Food forms an important part of any group visit to Turkey. Sample mouth-watering mezes, sample fresh fish and of course try a traditional kebab.
And of course sports groups can’t visit Istanbul without seeing some of the home football grounds of the internationally famous teams such as Beşiktaş, Galatasaray and Fenerbahçe. Istanbul is also bidding to be the host of the 2020 summer Olympics.
For walking groups there are dozens of historical tours which take you through the labyrinth of streets and alleyways. Or for a more refreshing view of the city there is always the opportunity to take a cruise on a paddle steamer down the Bosphorous. With more than 11 million foreign visitors arriving in Istanbul every year, this is the world's fifth-most-popular tourist destination. Will your group be joining them too?
