Cappadocia, Mount Kuyucuk & Sailing
A glance a map of Turkey, will immediately show you the country’s geographical diversity as well as innumerable activities for the tourist. Taking into consideration the characteristic of our country we thoroughly prepared this tour to permit you to discover most of its innumerable different aspects by using small group cultural visits, trekking and cruising…
During 5 days, we cross the Kuyucak massif (part of the Taurus chain) which is a calcareous mountain covered with pines and cypress in places. For trekking this mountain is a cordial appointment with all the beauty of a generous nature: an easy excursion on mule-trails and sometimes on old Roman ways with a maximum height of 500 m Per day.
By trekking in a mountain at the same time as wild as it is hospitable you will have the opportunity of sharing the way of life and in the customs of populations who live here.
We couldn’t consider a voyage in Turkey without a stay in Cappadocia, where Nature has been given freedom by God to imagine a singular and extraordinary landscape. If the great reputation of Cappadocia is due to the fairy chimneys, rock cones, capped pinnacles and fretted ravines with variable colours, no one can deny the particular interest added the hand of man: underground cities, troglodyte shelters, monasteries and frescoed churches carved out of rock.
For three days, at the end of the tour, the southern coastline offers you its most beautiful sites on board a comfortably arranged yacht. Turquoise water, secluded coves, picturesque inlets, sandy bays and beautiful beaches… and also an experience of man from the perspective of the sea rather than from the land. This journey invites you on a voyage across time by visiting the antiques sites of Aspendos, Kekova… Byzance and also Constantinople before it became the sumptuous capital of the Ottomans Istanbul is inevitable…
