Van is found at the eastern extreme of Turkey and many people visit for the stunning scenery and the water sports on nearby Lake Van. The lake is the largest in Turkey and is saltwater, fed by the streams that run off the salt laden hills that surround it.

Beautiful in any season, the region is snow clad in winter and lush and green in summer. This is the Turkey of old, where people still work the land and traditional hospitality is still significant in people’s lives.
