Cappadocia is just as dreamy as you imagine it to be, maybe even more!
There are so many cultural and outdoor activities to do and see, be sure you don’t miss any of these…
1- Watch the sunrise
We have witness thousands of sunrises all over the world. But none of them was as magical as the ones we experienced in Cappadocia. Definitely the highlight of our trip was to see hundreds of hot air balloons flying high in the orange sky.
2- Ride a hot air balloon
Cappadocia is well known for its magical balloon rides. If you don’t want to miss this lifetime experience be sure you book this activity in advance, because they are likely to sell out. People often say that makes you feel like you are in a space ship capturing the views of the moon surface!
3- Horse riding through the moon-like landscape
Fun fact: Cappadocia in Turkish actually means “the land of beautiful horses”, so of course we had to see this for ourselves! It’s the perfect way to explore the valleys and enjoy the epic views. We highly recommend for you to book the sunset tour with The Dalton Brothers.
4- Explore Cappadocia on an ATV
If you would like to add a little bit of adrenaline to your trip, renting an ATV it’s a most for you! You will have the freedom to go wherever you want whenever you want and feel the rush of driving down and up the hills!
5- Stay in a Cave Hotel
You don’t have to settle for an ordinary hotel when you can stay at one of the many memorable hotels carved out of the landscape. We really think it’s the perfect way to experience the true beauty of the region. A post about the best hotels in Cappadocia is coming soon!!
6- Monks Valley (Pasabag)
Although one of the most visited places in this region is Cappadocia Open Air Museum, Monks Valley is our top choice. We loved how quiet it was and the valley has some of the most striking fairy chimneys in Cappadocia. They say chimneys are mushroom-shaped but to be honest they made us think of other thing… ahah
7- Get lost in Goreme
Be sure you save some time to wander around the streets. That’s the best way to interact with the locals! You can also find some amazing rooftops to enjoy a Turkish tea. If you are a shopping addict stay away of the beautiful rug stores. They are a huge temptation!!
