Walking Tour In Central Turkey

Following ancient pathways we explore this unique region of central Turkey. We discover the famous 'fairy chimneys', rock-cut churches and the spectacular underground city of Kaymakli. Starting in the Ihlara Valley we walk for six days through the landscapes of Cappadocia, following little-known trails past orchards and vineyards to traditional villages. Along the way we visit local landmarks including Uchisar 'Castle' and Goreme Open Air Museum. We also learn how to make Turkish tea and have the opportunity to try our hand at local cooking.
