sufi trail


Every year on the first Friday of May a hike caravan will start in Yalova followed by a Bicycle caravan starting on the last Friday of September

To get inspiration from our previous hikers in 2022 you can read their blogs on the inspiration page. We travel in two seasons, spring and autumn. Spring is for the flowery hiking caravan and the autumn colour festival is for the cycling caravan.

Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving. It doesn’t matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. Come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times. Come, yet again, come, come.
