From Istanbul
By plane: Turkish Airlines, who intervened after that Atlasjet Company served out the flights between Istanbul & Canakkale, began flights on the same route with an Airbus A-319. Turkish Airlines is now operating these flights under its own low cost carrier Anadolu Jet (no thrills airline). Please note that this flight departs from Sabiha Gokcen Airport on the Asian Side, for those who will be staying around Sultanahmet & Taksim area hotels this would mean apx. 1½ hrs driving time to the airport. Turkish Airlines flight details are: 21:50 Istanbul - 22:50 Canakkale everyday & 07:15 Canakkale - 08:15 Istanbul everyday, (Please check before planning as this might not have stayed current informartion). Arriving in Canakkale, we have a service to get you from the airport to the ferry port where you cross the Dardanelles, reaching Eceabat in 25min. The plane now has just 90 seats so email us for a booking as soon as possible to ensure availability in peak season. The price is very reasonable but varies according to time of purchase. So get in quick for the best offers.

By bus : Coaches, no less than two years old depart Istanbul hourly for Eceabat. Each coach has a host or hostess who serves drinks & nibblies free of charge. The journey takes approx 5hrs. Make sure you have Eceabat written on your ticket before departure to ensure you are not dropped off in the town of Gelibolu, 45km north of the battlefields. Or you can email us & we can organise it for you & have the ticket delivered to your accommodation. This way, you can choose the public shuttle or you can ask us for a private transfer to the bus station & a car & driver will collect you.

Chauffered car : We can organise a private vehicle with English speaking driver on request.

Self drive : Driving in Turkey can be very hazardous, so we suggest self-drive only for the very confident & experienced driver. When driving from Istanbul to Eceabat, it’s important to stick to the main highways rather than take what seems to be the scenic route on the map following the coastline, as the coast road is military owned & is basically a graded track in some areas with only one car width & steep cliff edges.

From rest of Turkey
By plane: You can catch a charter flight from many places down south such as Izmir, Bodrum, Dalaman, Antalya, Kayseri (Cappadocia) direct to Istanbul, where you can transfer to the 21:50 flight heading to Canakkale from Sabiha Gokcen Airport domestic terminal. You must be careful to make sure the flight you are on is landing at the Sabiha Gokcen airport as some companies do not fly to Sabiha Gokcen Airport at all. Arriving in Canakkale, we have a service to get you from the airport to the ferry port where you cross the Dardanelles, reaching Eceabat in 25min.

By bus : Turkey has a very sophistaced, modern, comfortable & efficient bus system. Most buses are only a few years old with air conditioning, entertainment, a steward to bring you snacks & drinks & even free Wifi Internet connections (on some buses (more in the bus terminals). Turkish buses are not usually equipped with onboard toilets, so use the facilities in the terminal before your board & at the mola (rest stops) about every 2 to 2-1/2 hours along the way. Drinks, snacks & meals are avilable at the stops & smokers light up (no smoking is allowed on public buses). Buses run almost hourly if not less between Turkey's major cities such as Istanbul, Izmir, Antalya, Ankara, Bursa, Gaziantep, Adana etc.. There are also frequent buses from the smaller provinces to Canakkale of which some also go through Eceabat. Make sure you have Eceabat written on your ticket before departure to ensure you are not dropped off in the town of Gelibolu, 45km north of the battlefields. You can email us & we can organise it for you & have the ticket delivered to your accommodation. Or ask at your place of accommodation & they can help you out.

Chauffered car : We can organise a private vehicle with English speaking driver on request.

Self drive : Driving in Turkey can be very hazardous, so we suggest self-drive only for the very confident & experienced driver. If you decide to self drive, email us & we’ll send through some route details for you.
