Biking In Cappadocia

Biking Next To Fairy Chimneys

PRICES 700 € PP UPWARDS  

Welcome to the land of fairy chimneys and extraordinary land formations. In the Old Persian Katpatuka meaning “the land of beautiful horses” was the name of an extensive inland district of Asia Minor. The name continued to be used in western sources and in the Christian tradition throughout history and is still widely used as an international tourism concept to define a region of exceptional natural wonders characterized by fairy chimneys and a unique historical and cultural heritage. The term, as used in tourism, roughly corresponds to present-day Nevsehir Province of Turkey.
