Take a short and sweet trip full of Turkish delights, hitting the country’s most renowned region –Cappadocia – on this five-day natural adventure. Discover the weird and wonderful world of fairy chimneys, rock formations and otherworldly surroundings of Cappadocia’s sprawling valleys, go deep underground to explore the hidden cities of Derinkuyu and Kaymakli and bask in local hospitality and authentic food for a true taste of the place. It’s not Turkey unless you’ve tried and tested their kebab, and you’ll have a handful of days to do so much more than that. You might call Cappadocia quirky, but we call it Turkey.

Theme

  • Itinerary

    Day - 1

    Location: Antalya - Cappadocia - Ready? Let’s adventure – your trip starts bright and early in Antalya at 8 am. Meet your group leader and the rest of your group, then head to the bus station and travel to Goreme in Cappadocia by local bus (approximately 9.5 hours). Once arrived, take a leader-led orientation walk to get your bearings and maybe visit the Ortahisar Castle in the afternoon. Tonight you’ll stay at local host Nazim's house in Ortahisar who has an amazing spot with views over a secluded valley. Your family hosts will treat you to some true Turkish hospitality with home-cooked food – Cappadocia style.

     

    Day - 2

    Location: Cappadocia - Weird rock formations, fairy chimneys and underground cities – Cappadocia is pretty wacky. This morning you have the option of taking an early hot air balloon ride over the landscapes at sunrise. Those who choose to opt in for this optional extra will have a seriously excellent time, getting high above the changing colours below as the sun rises. Later in the morning, head underground and explore some of the 36 underground cities in Cappadocia. These rabbit-warren metropolises were carved into the earth thousands of years ago. Discover the highlights of the region this afternoon, checking out Pigeon Valley and Deverent Valley – your group leader will know all the best places to stop. Later this afternoon, grab some wine and some local cheese and find a perfect vantage point to enjoy the sunset. Afterwards, you might like to check out the nightlife in Goreme, or for something more mystical, hit up a traditional sema performance of whirling dervishes.

     

    Day - 3

    Location: Cappadocia - Put your boots on and hike the hills and mountains to Goreme. One arrived in Goreme, spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing and deciding what to do. You might like to pull up a bean bag at ‘Fat Boys’ or, if you’re muscles are causing you grief, why not try a local hammam for a traditional Turkish spa treatment. Tonight is also yours to choose your own adventure, so get some of your travel crew together and head out for some dinner.

     

    Day - 4

    Location: Cappadocia - Overnight bus - Spend the day exploring the Cappadocia area some more. If you like, you can stop by the Goreme Open Air Museum – a medieval wonderland of old rock-cut churches and frescoes. For a very different taste of the diverse landscape around here, you could check out Avanos, or hire a bike and ride through the valleys out to Cavusin. Soganli Valley is another popular spot – it’s a bit of a drive but a great place for some local lunch and churches also with awesome frescoes. Keep in mind that tonight you’ll board an overnight bus bound for Istanbul (approximately 10–12 hours).

     

    Day - 5

    Location: Istanbul - Arrive into Istanbul this morning, where you’ll say goodbye to your group leader and travel pals at a centrally located hostel. With no activities planned for today, you are free to leave at any time. That doesn’t mean your Turkish adventure has to come to an end! If you would like to spend more time checking out all Istanbul has to offer, including the Blue Mosque, the huge Grand Bazaar and the flowing Bosphorus, we’ll be happy to organise additional accommodation (subject to availability).
