Overview

Book
A lunar-like landscape dotted by fairy chimneys and honeycombed with ancient underground cities awaits you in Cappadocia, an unusual combination that makes for excellent mountain biking! Deep in the heart of Turkey Kapadokya ancient volcanic eruptions dispersed thick ash, which solidified into a soft rockcalled tufftens of metres thick. Wind and water went to work on this plateau creating a fairy tale landscape of cones, pillars, pinnacles, mushrooms, and chimneys. Thousands of years ago humans took a cue from Mother Nature and began carving tunnels into the soft rock and an underground urbanized landscape was created, living at one with nature rather than imposing upon it. This moderate mountain biking tour is a journey of adventure and discovery, taking to a network of little used dirt roads and not too technical singletrack MTB trails as it winds its way across the region including the Ihlara Canyon, Soganli Valley, and the Fairy Chimney landscape that stretches from Mustafapasa to Goreme. Combining the best of remote, wilderness off road adventure biking with plenty of sights, sounds and new experiences along the way. Its this mix of attractions that makes Cappadocia such a compelling destination and we discover the most captivating highlights, escape the tourist crowds and discover the true character and charm of this magical place and its people, by bicycle!

It is rare that I would take the liberty of writing to the management of a company in respect to their performance whether it be satisfactory or not. However I thought I would ,in this instance, take such a liberty and congratulate your company on its excellent work generally and specifically in respect to the recent tour to Turkey. I have recently completed a survey representing my feelings and returned same to you. I will be recommending your company to all and sundry. I wish you every success in the future.

This was an excellent route for our group with moderate mountain bike skills. Each day brought new and unexpected treasures and as the route unfolded it could not be more enjoyable to discover ever more beautiful scenery and places of cultural interest. The riding also became more challenging as the days progressed and as we became fitter we were able to tackle more uphills with confidence. A degree of flexibility at the guide's discretion was definitely an advantage given that we were staying 2 nights in Goreme.
