Rose fields & harvest
The area of Eğirdir/ Isparta is famous for roses that bloom here in spring. The roses are collected and used to produce a valuable oil for cremes and perfumes.
The Gülbirlik Rose Oil company, the biggest rose-oil producer of the world, is based in Isparta. They have four processing plants handling 320 tonnes of petals daily.
Trips to the village of Senir and the city Isparta to discover the rose fields and factories can be organized, usually in the period of May / start of June. If you don´t have the time for touring, local shops in Isparta also sell different rose-related creams and perfumes.
There are frequent Minibuses to Isparta from Eğirdir. However, for getting to the rose fields and the factories you will need to take a taxi.
If you wish, we will be happy to organize a driver, who will take you to all points of interests. Please let us know the evening before so we can do the necessary arrangements.
