Cappadocia, which means “the land of beautiful horses” in ancient Persian, is located at the heart of Anatolia. A region that combines unique geological, historic, and cultural features, Cappadocia is an open-air museum in its own right. Millions of years ago three active volcanoes – Erciyes, Hasandağ and Güllüdağ – erupted and these eruptions were so strong that in some places the lava was up to 150m in thickness. Over many millions of years, volcanoes, wind, rain and ice sculpted the region which is known as Cappadocia. On the eroded landscape, basalt stones remained and formed conical structures which the local people referred to as unique rock formations “fairy chimneys” (in turkish “peri bacalari”). Cappadocia is known to be one of the most interesting places on earth with its geography and history. It has thousands of cave dwellings and churches carved out of rock, and over 250 underground cities.
If you are into a biking adventure that is combined with breathtaking sights, come join us for a 5-day-long bike tour in Cappadocia, one of Turkey’s most exciting cultural sites.
