Cappadocia on Foot

For millions of years the volcanoes of the Central Anatolian Plateau erupted over the land to create the unique rock formations and fairy chimneys that characterise Cappadocia, Turkey. Through the centuries, civilisations carved houses and churches within these rocky pillars and underground cities leaving a natural and historic legacy which continues to be a focal point for visitors to the region. Interspersed amongst these relics is a living culture of traditional villages, spectacular river valleys and rural settlements. On this week long self guided walk you will be immersed in the history and stunning lunar landscapes of this fascinating region. Following a series of trails you will explore the highlights of the region such as Mustafapasa, Ortahisar and Goreme.
