Lycia and Cappadocia
Join us on a journey of discovery and adventure along the stunning Lycian coast of Turkey, where ancient history and natural beauty blend in perfect harmony.
You will cruise on a traditional wooden gulet, enjoying the sun, sea and scenery of this Mediterranean paradise. You will also explore some of the most impressive archaeological sites in Turkey, such as the Lycian tombs carved into the cliffs, the classical cities of Myra and Phaselis, and the Neolithic city of Catal Höyük, the oldest urban settlement in the world.
You will then venture into the heart of Anatolia, where you will marvel at the surreal landscape of Cappadocia, dotted with fairy chimneys and rock-cut churches. The adventurous can add an optional soar over the valley in a hot-air balloon, an unforgettable experience.
If you would like to extend your trip, you can also visit Istanbul, the vibrant and historic metropolis that straddles two continents. This is a tour that will captivate your senses and enrich your mind.
