Begin the day at dawn with an optional hot air balloon flight to get a bird’s eye view of Cappadocia’s surreal landscapes as the sun rises.
After breakfast, we’ll depart on a full-day tour of Cappadocia’s northern circuit, beginning with a visit to the Rose Valley. Marvel at its unique rock formations and stunning churches that have been carved into the cliff face before we continue to the small town of Cavusin. It’s renowned for its dwellings that have been etched into the side of the hill and is home to the beautifully preserved Church of St. Johns.
Our next destination is the Monks Valley, which is home to spectacular fairy chimneys and dwellings carved into the cliffs where monks sought out a peaceful life. We’ll make a stop in Avanos, a town that’s renowned for its hand-made pottery using clay sourced from the local riverbed. You may opt to purchase ceramics from one of the traditional pottery workshops that cluster in the town before exploring the ancient buildings of Uchisar.
At the Goreme Open Air Museum, you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about the history of the region and get up close to artefacts uncovered here. Our final stop is the picturesque Devrent Valley, where nature holds supreme as no humans have inhabited the area.
In the evening, you will have the option to attend a Turkish Night Show and Dinner to get a taste of the local culture and traditions. We will pick you up from your hotel at 8:00 or 8:30 pm and transport you to one of the nearby cave restaurants where your night of entertainment awaits.
