1. WHAT's Dere Tepe Duzzz ATV Riding & Nature Trips?

Well, the Turkish wording (Dere Tepe Dzzz) stands for non-stop off-road experience through the creeks and over the hills as if were taking a straight path. The project is all about sharing love for nature and animals by finding out new on-road and off-road paths by ATV within 300-400 km range of Sapanca and Kartepe Manzara Restaurant, and recording & sharing non-stop videos and pictures taken during these trips.

We offer private, full daytime, long distance (3-6-12-24-48-72 hours), real ATV riding trips; extraordinary nature, freedom and adventure journeys for individuals and mini groups that appreciate the videos, the pics and the lifestyle demonstrated.

We have declared following places as sister Dere Tepe Duzzz town to Sapanca and included them in our coverage & range:

  • Iznik @ Bursa
  • Melen @ Dzce
  • Abant-Kartalkaya @ Bolu
  • Camlihemsin - Kackar Mountains @ Rize
  • Erciyes Mountain @ Kayseri
  • Cappadocia @ Nevsehir
  • The Carpathian Mountains @ Romania

2. WHY?

Veni vidi vici. We wanted other people to see these beautiful natural places and experience the feeling of absolute peace, freedom and adventure.

Isn't it exhausting to ride ATV all day long?

Well, it depends who you are and what you want. On the other hand, there are many different types and models of ATVs, and your driving experience may change a lot on how you ride it. Unlike motor sports where you hear noise, see & feel mud and force the mechanical limits of vehicles, if you ride like we do - as means of transportation to less traveled places in the wilderness, things do change drastically.

Before a short training on ABCs of ATV riding, we start the day with rich breakfast at Manzara Restaurant on the road from Masukiye to Kartepe. Depending on your expectations, we decide on a route or just getting lost, and start riding DereTepeDuzzz for 2-3 hours. When we see something interesting (a creek, a hill, a pond, a lake, a point, a path, something geographical), our plans may change. Time to time, we stop riding and walk for a while, sleep on hammocks in the ocean of peace, read book/paper, bet on who will get less/more wet, pick mountain cherries or build a 2.5 m tall snowman. We include lunch during our mid day break and then start our way back, if possible from a different route...

Seeing thousands of storks or 36 different kind of water birds on a small pond requires riding DereTepeDuzzz for few hours. Depending on season, a beach and 45 minutes of swimming break can be added to our itinerary.

Summary: Depending on how you define your kind of nature, peace, adventure, flower, bugs, animals and ATV journey; we do have at least one place to go each and every season, no matter how the weather is!

We give frequent resting breaks on our 2-3 day journeys and offer accommodation on selected mountain hotel & motels.

  • Once there was a lake here, now crop fields...
  • Looks like Dalyan; thousands of swans, flamingos and cormorants, but this is border with Greece...
  • It's freezing out there, but storks are in Ikramiye already.

8. THINGS WE DON'T DO and DON'T LET YOU DO

When they are ridden with conscious and caution, ATVs are extremely pleasant vehicles to ride with powerful feelings of freedom. On the other hand, they can be dangerous and even deadly for all if used improperly and to demonstrate libido & adrenalin. Therefore, we do not do and let you do the following:

  • Riding like doing extreme sports
  • Racing within the group or with others in the traffic
  • Acting individually, not with the group
  • Tricks, acrobatics and the like
  • Smoking while driving, drinking alcohol during the day
  • Underestimate weather/road /medium conditions
  • Not listening to advice of experienced & professional staff

For us, ATVs are not vehicles for testing their mechanical limits or our own physical and mental limits, but vehicles that take us to natural and very beautiful places other vehicles (including 4x4 jeeps, as they are wide and heavy) simply can not, so we can enjoy nature at maximum. We consider them as our mechanical friends and indispensable part of the extraordinary freedom and ultimate nature experience in the wilderness.

In short, we do not let you hurt yourself or others, and take all necessary measures to achieve maximum safety at all times.
