Cycle to the light

The Sufi Trail cycle route starts in Istanbul and brings you to Konya on the ancient pilgrimage route to Al Quds (Jerusalem) and Mecca. The story of the Sufi Trail today finds his origin from a first-hand story told by Nayzen Orhan Dede to Mohammed El-Fers. Nayzen Orhan Dede travelled the Sufi Trail in 1923 just before the closing of Sufilodge in Konya. The Sufi Trail cycle route starts in Eyüp and leads you to the famous city walls into the heart of Istanbul where you see the Chora Church Mosque, Suyleymaniye Mosque, The bridge over the golden horn, Aghia Sophia, the Blue Mosque and countless historical heritarge.

The Sufi Trail is a challenging but not too diffucult ride that leads you along with the diversity of land scenery, people of all cultures and world heritage sites.
