Uludag, 36km south of Bursa, is one of the country’s favorite winter sports centers, and as well as skiing, its richness of flora and fauna has made it into a National Park and summer activities like trekking and camping are also popular. Uludag was previously known as Olympus Misios in ancient times and is known in mythology as the place where the gods watched the Trojan war.
The suitable conditions have also formed a habitat for many species of animal and bird life, like bears, wolves, jackals, foxes, roe deer, rabbits, pigs, partridges, wild pigeons, vultures, eagles, black kites, nightingales, and goldcrests. The Bakacak watchtower at Cobankaya gives a great view over the surrounding area. Between December and May, Uludag is covered with snow sometimes up to 4m deep, making it suitable for skiing, and it is one of the most popular winter sports centers in Turkey.

One thing that sets us apart from other tour operators is that we’ve built our own packages and tours. Many agencies force you to deal with multiple people during the booking and holiday process, which makes it impersonal. Moonstar Tour Team will deal with you from beginning to end.
At Moonstartour, we strive to earn repeat business from you! From our travelers, we love that they recommend us to their friends and family. All referrals are extremely valuable to us and we know that we have to work diligently to deserve them.
