What to Expect
Spend a magical 3 days exploring the fascinating rock formations of Cappadocia and the lush Taurus Mountains. You will be picked up from your hotel in Side, Belek or Alanya, and transferred to one of the most intriguing landscapes on earth.
Set deep in the heart of Central Anatolia, the magical region is underlain by sedimentary rocks formed in lakes and streams, and by ignimbrite deposits that erupted from ancient volcanoes approximately 3 to 9 million years ago.
The rocks of Cappadocia near Göreme eroded into hundreds of spectacular pillars and minaret-like forms. Carved into houses, churches and monasteries by the people of the villages at the heart of the Cappadocia Region, the soft rock volcanic deposits are a marvel to observe.
This tour will bring you to the Caravanserai of Sultanhani, built on the ancient trade routes as well as to the underground city of Saratli Kirkgöz. Spend a day exploring the rock houses at Uchisar castle and pigeon valley, which is full of dovecoats.
