Just as a heads up before you book: this trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
You'll need walking shoes, hats, sunscreen and a day pack for each member of your family to explore some of the historic sites.
Although this trip has a low overall physical rating, there is an included 20 kilometre bike ride around the Cappadocia region on Day 3. If you wish you may skip this and spend the afternoon at leisure.
The temperatures in April and October may be a bit cooler than you expect, especially in the evenings. So be sure to pack something warm to wear.
