Cornucopia’s travel guide

Eğirdir


Eğirdir lake lies beneath mountain peaks that climb to 2,600 metres. Two islands in its placid waters are joined by a causeway, and this is where to find a bed for the night and a plate of freshwater fish. This was Hellenic Akrotiri, but there are few remains and little to do in the town except enjoy the wonderful mountain scenery, pull on walking boots and stride out. Soon the visitor will be as fit as the army commandoes based in the town. St Paul came this way, and Kate Clow, intrepid hiker and author of St Paul Trail, headed for the dizzying mountain heights among the silent, gliding lammergeiers for her feature in Cornucopia 17.

Getting there

There are frequent buses to Eğirdir from Isparta, 35km to the west.
