Cappadocia Family Adventure
The unique and fascinating landscapes of the Cappadocia region in central Turkey are one of life's must sees. Sharing the experience of walking through this landscape of red hued valley's dotted with unusual rock formations is one rarely forgotten. With its twisting tracks offering views of canyons, sweeping valleys and small villages the children will be swept away by the adventure, where one rock may house a church and another a tea stall. Enveloped in history and culture, the classroom will come alive as you explore ancient art in rock hewn monasteries, observe the ceramic trade dating back to the Hittites, visit a vast underground city and walk the gorge of the Ilhara Valley with its honeycombed rock walls housing tombs and churches from the Byzantine era. During the trip there will be time to go for an early morning hot air balloon ride, visit a Turkish bath and take in a cultural show (all optional) while at night you are immersed in the region.
