Cappadocia Cross Country Ride


Cappadocia Cross Country Ride
Turkey Turkey
This progressive riding trail, with nights spent in guesthouses, is an invitation to discover the immense natural, historical and cultural wealth of Cappadocia's unique landscape. A listed UNESCO World Heritage site, the Cappadocia regions is the result of incredible volcanic eruptions and  ancient human activity. In personal riding groups of no more than 8 people, you will spend 5 - 6 hours per day exploring on horseback through a land rich with wonder. Beginning from the ranch located between Ortahisar and Ürgüp, the itinerary  will take you on a 120 km tour around 'geological' Cappadocia, in 6 riding days. From the peasants' Cappadocia of the South to the most beautiful valleys of the North, a succession of fantastic rock formations, lush canyons, high plateaus, steppe-like landscapes, vineyards and orchards, compose a surprisingly varied route. The villages you will be introduced to will reflect the Anatolian way of life and the frescoed churches and many troglodytic treasures will testify to the stunning historical past of the area.  You will experience the legendary Turkish hospitality in the typical Anatolian guesthouses that we have selected for you to stay in along the way. You will visit the cave villages, a renovated caravanserai and ancient frescoed churches. Come discover the beauty of the rural way of life found here, where the oldest traditions still live on.

It is now possible to include a hot-air balloon flight over Cappadocia's surreal landscape during the week. Flights take place on Thursday or Friday morning at sunrise.
