The Sufi Trail is a long-distance hiking and biking trail from Istanbul to Konya. The length is 801 km and it would take an average person 40 days to complete the Sufi Trail. Cyclists and bikepackers need around two weeks to complete the Sufi Trail bike route.
It runs through amazing nature and idyllic old villages with monumental mosques, hidden treasures and even an underwater city in İznik, where Christianity began, and an underground town in Han.
The mystical atmosphere is very present in the hidden old trails where caravans used to pass by also the many tombs you visit on this route are full of ancient secrets you can only sense when you are there.
Together with the help of many ever so kind people, councils, and of course OpenStreetMap we established a respectable hiking trail of 801 km through amazing Anatolian Turkey. We used the old Ottoman Hajj trail and included tombs to visit and many surprises you should just experience yourself.
The Sufi Trail project always welcomes people who want to join or volunteer.
