Abant – in Turkey’s Bolu Province in north west Anatolia is a vast national park surrounded by woodland and a famous freshwater lake, formed in a crater at an altitude of 1.328 m. Abant lies 32 km from Bolu city and is a favourite vacation spot for Turkish and foreign travellers thanks to the natural beauty of its surroundings, covered with dense forests, and its easy access by car – served easily by a branch of road leaving the Istanbul-Ankara motorway and the highway D100 at the level of Mount Bolu, making it a three hour drive from the two largest cities of Turkey.
The famous lake is inhabited by Abant trout (Salmo abanticus), a sub species of trout which is endemic to this lake only. Surrounding forests are inhabited by many game animals which makes the park a prized location for hunters during the season.
