CAPPADOCIA BY MOUNTAIN BIKE


Cappadocia is the name given to the region in central Anatolia which was once the heart of the Hittite Empire, later an independent kingdom, and then a vast Roman province. Explore the fascinating Cappadocia region by mountain bike and discover the places the crowds never reach. Millions of years of volcanic activity and erosion have resulted in a surreal, lunar type landscape littered with strange rock formations. In addition, churches beautifully decorated with frescoes, houses and underground cities hollowed out of the soft rock offer an insight in to life in the region as it was centuries ago. Small tracks covered in volcanic sand twist and turn among the rock formations, valleys, vineyards and villages, offering a wonderful way to explore the region far away from any kind of motor traffics.

As Turkey’s mountain bike specialist, Argeus Travel is able to offer a wide range of bike tours lasting up to 15 days. Accommodation is generally in high quality cave hotels, although camping is possible depending on the tour. Tailor made tours can be arranged for groups of minimum 2, or individuals can join a fixed tour. A professional guide, with expert knowledge of the area, accompanies all tours, as does a support vehicle. Most of the cycling is on small tracks covered with volcanic sand and quiet roads, and daily distances range from 20 to 70km. During the spring the region is covered with wild and colorful flowers and autumn is the time for grapes. Both, spring and autumn, with the mild climate, are the perfect seasons for cycling in the area.

Mountain bikes are essential in this area, and available for hire from Argeus Travel.

Full board is supplied during the tour and vegetarian food is available.
