What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Goreme National Park, Goreme Turkey

Strap on your hiking boots for an adventure through Ihlara Valley’s hundreds of rock-carved churches and fantastical topography. We begin at the Göreme Panoramic Point to take in sweeping views over the Göreme Valley.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Selime Monastery, Guzelyurt Turkey

At the Selime Rock-art Monastery, we’ll marvel at the biggest rock-cut structure in all of Cappadocia. It incorporates a soaring chimney, a gallery surrounding the church, and stables with rock-carved feed troughs evidencing the “troglodyte lifestyle.”

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Ihlara Valley, Guzelyurt 68500 Turkey

After a delicious lunch at Ihlara, we’ll embark on a pleasant 3 km (1.86 mi) hike through the valley. Once called Peristrema, the valley follows the Melendiz River, hemmed in by jagged cliffs and snaking between frescoed cave-churches. The natural green canyon goes as deep as 100 meters, lush with singing birds and croaking frogs.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Pigeon Valley, Uchisar KasabasI Nevşehir Kapadokya, Goreme 50240 Turkey

Finally, we’ll stop at the picturesque Pigeon Valley to take in stunning views of Uçhisar Castle, another way to experience the centuries-old citadel.

Duration: 30 minutes
