Cappadocia Highlights

The Cappadocia Highlights is a six-night itinerary staying in the Queens Cave Hotel in Ortahisar. On occasions other hotels are used but always of a similar standard.

During the week there is an opportunity to visit the Göreme Open Air Museum to see the awe-inspiring painted churches built by exiled Christians during the Roman era as well as watch the whirling dervishes perform in a 13th Century caravanserai. The visits will be arranged whilst you are there so that you can go when there are fewer tourists. 

The following is the proposed 2015 itinerary but it is subject to change due to local conditions. Riding times are an approximation.
