Welcome to Middle Earth Travel... We are the trekking, hiking, walking,...

Welcome to Middle Earth Travel... We are the trekking, hiking, walking, climbing outdoors and archeology guides of Turkey. We are based in Cappadocia, a very special region which resembles a magical fairy tale land. The remains of the millions years ago volcanic eruptions, shaped by the wind and rain for thousands of years, have formed one of natures most spectacular masterpieces: Strange rock formations, called: "fairy chimneys". Beautifully coloured valleys full of these 'fairy houses' have been a fantastic stage for some of the most important actors of known history, some of which are the Hittites, The Persians, Alexander the Great, Romans, Byzantines and Ottomans. Many of these caves are still decorated with icons and wall paintings from the early Christian times.

I enjoyed my hike at the Lycian way. Middle Earth was very helpful providing an excellent service. We stayed at a variety of small hotels and pensions and especially the small pension in Cirali where we stayed for two nights was wonderful with great food and lovely personnel. We hiked Pirates Coast the second month in April which was perfect... More

Our day tour through the breathtaking landscape of the Ihlara valley exceeded our expectations. Our guide Özgür had thorough knowledge of history, geology, and fauna of the place and shared many stories with us. We enjoyed the flexibility of the tour, with time for birdwatching, cave exploring, and çay breaks at our own pace. We also visited the amazing Derinkuyu... More

Middle Earth travel and their guide Hami added a huge amount of value to our short two day trip to Cappadocia. We did two longish treks, which took us off the beaten track and into seldom seen places in the valleys of Cappadocia. There's a difference between visiting somewhere and seeing somewhere. We all felt we'd been given a great... More

We own a mountain biking company in Bali (Bali Rides), which is rider and service focused. We've now found another mountain biking company that provides the same level of high service. Our Guide, John, was highly knowledgeable about Turkey, spoke the language, gauged the group's experience and gave us a cracker tour to match our riding ability. The tour was... More
