Cycle Turkey, a unique adventure cycling holiday in Cappadocia
This is an amazing mountain biking holiday in Turkey and full of eastern promise. The central Turkish region of Cappadocia is one of the world's most outlandish and historic adventure travel destinations, with an extraordinary lunar landscape of amazing rock formations, a captivating history and a very exotic feel. Cappadocia is the perfect location for a mountain biking holiday, with a great mix of backroad, dirtroad and off-road trails not dissimilar to those found in the mountain biker's 'Mecca' of Moab in the USA.
We have 15 years experience of running cycling holidays in this part of Turkey and the result is an itinerary that provides an exhilarating cycling holiday for most riders. Our cycling journey begins and ends in the wonderfully authentic village of Urgup and takes us on a jaw-dropping biking adventure as we cycle through a vast kingdom of towering fairy-tale chimneys, yawning sandstone valleys and rock-hewn dwellings. Each day we cycle to different parts of the Cappodocia region, staying in comfortable family run hotels and enjoying the local cuisine. Amongst the must-see sights are cycling to the underground city of Derinkuyu, Orchisar Rock Village, biking the beautiful Ihlara Valley and a visit on two wheels to the carved frescoes of Goreme. This is a biking paradise, good for relative beginners and also a chilled out holiday destination for the more experienced mountain biker.
