Description

Get the best of Cappadocia as you travel through valleys and breath-taking landscapes to discover the illustrious “fairy chimneys,” the Zelve Open Air Museum, and the splendid rock formations at the Uchisar Rock Castle. To complete your experience have an authentic meal in a traditional cave setting.

Begin your day with a drive to Devrent Valley, where your guide explains its layered geology of ash and lava rock as you hike this lunar landscape. Head to Pasabag Valley to explore more extraordinary rock structures. Be amazed by the mushroom-shaped fairy chimneys and visit the rocky St Simon Church while learning about its history and formation.

Continue on to visit the famous Zelve Open Air Museum to see the best examples of Byzantine art in Cappadocia. Also, make stops at the Geyikli Kilise (the Church with the Deer) and Uzumlu Kilise (The Church with Grapes) before some free time to explore this deserted cave village now part of UNESCO heritage sites.

After lunch, continue to the abandoned ancient city of Cavusin and discover rock carvings portraying the period's lifestyle before heading to Avanos—the centre of terracotta artwork since 3000 BC. Here you have the opportunity to make your own pottery with tips and assistance from local craftsmen.

Your final stops are at the Uchisar and Pigeon Valley, and Estentepe, where are be able to taste some Turkish tea and enjoy the stunning views of Goreme Valley.
