Cappadocia Explorer Overview
Travel to Turkey and explore Goreme and the Cappadocia region
Travel to Turkey and break away from the bustle of the big cities to experience the rural culture of the Cappadocia region. A series of volcanic eruptions resulted in the area being swamped in ash, which then hardened to form a porous rock. The elements carved the terrain into the odd fairy chimneys, and later the inhabitants discovered they too could carve the rocks - even into homes and churches. A base in Goreme allows you to easily explore Cappadocia with a local guide. Come and discover Cappadocia's many mysteries and legends.
What's included in this trip
Cappadocia Explorer SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Cappadocia has one of the most astonishing landscapes above ground, and has a wealth of underground cities, caves houses and cultural roots stemming back to the Bronze Age.
Sculptured by millenniums of erosion and centuries of human craftsmanship, Goreme is a truly magical place with fairy chimneys, rock-hewn churches and underground cities.
Thanks to its rich volcanic soil, Cappadocia is home to fertile orchards and vineyards - and the local cuisine is characterised by cooking in tall clay pots.
