Bolu - Yedigöller National Park
Location: The Yedigoller (Seven Lakes) National Park is in the north of the Bolu province, and south of Zonguldak in the western Black Sea region.
Transportation: The park can be reached via the Yenicaga road, 152km off the Ankara – Istanbul highway. The Bolu – Yedigoller route is closed during winter, which means transport is only available via the Yenicaga – Mengen – Yazicik road.
Highlights: The park is the best known for the lakes formed by landslides, the rich plant life which gives dense coverage to the area, and the abundance of trout living in the lake. The structure of the land, which has tendencies to subside, is the main factor in the lake’s formation.
The dominant plant cover is beech trees, and there are also oaks, hornbeams, alders, black pine, Scotch pine, firs elm and lime trees. As a result of effective protection of plant and animal life, the animals inside the park like deer, pigs, wolves, foxes and squirrels are increasing in number. There is also a deer protection area.

This area saw the first cultured trout farm in Turkey, established in 1969, and as a result trout fishing is a popular activity. The sightseeing tower at Kapankaya, inside the park, offers a great opportunity to view a wide area over the lakes and unique landscape. One of the most famous items is the monumental tree signboard on the way to the tower.

Facilities: Within the park are guest-houses, bungalows, tents and caravans, as well as cafes and restaurants.



Yedigöller'e adını veren yedi göl, vadi boyunca yer kaymaları ve vadi önlerinin tıkanmasıyla ortaya çıkan çukurlardan meydana gelmiş. Karadeniz suyunun yardımıyla oluşan heyelan gölleri, Sazlıgöl, İncegöl, Nazlıgöl, Küçükgöl, Deringöl, Büyükgöl ve Seringöl isimleri ile anılıyorlar. Göller çevrelerinde oluşan bitki yapısı itibariyle her biri ayrı karakter taşıyor. 2900 hektarlık Yedigöller Milli Parkı içinde kayın, meşe, gürgen, kızılağaç, karaağaç, karaçam, dişbudak, sarıçam, köknar, ıhlamur gibi ağaçlar var. Fındık, alıç, üvez türü bodur bitkileri, eğrelti otlarını ve rengarenk çiçekleri de unutmamak gerek. Her mevsim değişen renk tonlarına sahip 200'ü aşkın çeşidiyle bitki örtüsü, sabah ve akşam saatlerinde ormanın derinliklerine süzülen asil ışıklarla olağanüstü güzellikte bir renk armonisi sergiliyor. Dinlenme, gezi, piknik amaçlı gelenler olduğu kadar, botanikçiler, hatta fotoğraf tutkunlarına da rastlanan Yedigöller de doğa, ziyaretçilerine mükemmel bir görsel şölen sunuyor. Kademeli vadide yer alan yedi gölün aralarındaki çağlayanlar, seyir terasları ile görsel lezzet yöreye has özelliklerle bütünleşiyor.
