Adventure tour to Cappadocia
Trip to Cappadocia – this charming region of Turkey, which almost everyone has probably seen at least once in pictures of countless hot air balloons rising in the air over a fabulous landscape of mountainous canyons. This year, together with WeWalk, you will experience a picturesque sunrise in one of them. This is a land where ancient underground cities are perfectly preserved. Land with monasteries and castles carved into the rocks, mysterious valleys and colourful columns, which feels like they are almost made specifically for peaceful walks and photographs.
You will be granted an opportunity to feel like a medieval traveller, finding a night’s sleep in a cave every night. But don’t worry, there- in the walls of these hotels carved in rocks you will still be able to access Wi-Fi and other goods of modern civilization
Passing through Ihlar Canyon – a huge gap that divides the steppes, exploring numerous underground cities and making a wish in the Valley of Love is waiting for you. The WeWalk team is going on an expedition into the heart of Turkey!
The adventure is suitable for absolutely anyone, regardless of previous hiking experience and level of fitness. Extremely light backpacks, light trails and great weather make this adventure very suitable for the first trekking experience.
We will spend every night in the comfortable cave guest houses with all the necessary amenities. We will go on daily hikes, leaving everything in the place of accommodation. Breakfast will be eaten in the guesthouse and we will bring some light snacks to eat on the road. Dinner will be available at your choice, in guest houses or in local cafes or restaurants. The weather in Cappadocia will be warm – around 17 degrees during the day and around 10 during the night. We suggest that you bring comfortable shoes for trekking and a raincoat just for safety.

In the morning we are meeting each other in the beautiful village of Göreme where we move into a unique guest house-situated in rocks in which we will also have breakfast after which we will finally start to explore Cappadocia and go on a spectacular trip to the Valley of Daggers (Kiliclar Vadisi) as well as Red and Pink valleys. Amazingly peculiar rock shapes resemble mushrooms or even fairy houses. 14 kilometers will go in the blink of an eye!
The Valley of Doves with its cave towns will take us all the way to the Uçhisar Fortress – one of the highest points in Cappadocia. There we will enjoy a panoramic view overlooking all the valleys walked in the day before and our already beloved village of Göreme. We will return back to our home through the Valley of Love with its famous coloured columns.
Today we have will have to wake up at 5 in the morning! Just in time to get into the basket of hot air balloon and watch the tacular sunrise. Definitely a sight that will remain in the memories for a very long time! After the flight, we will go to Çаvuşin- a mysterious city, reminiscent of a huge anthill. Next, looking at the mushroom-shaped cliffs of Paşabaģ, we will go to the next cave valley – Zelve, which will surprise you with its multi-storey grottoes.
We drive to the huge canyon of the Cappadocian steppe – Ihlara, at the bottom of which there is a whole new World with a river, forests and gardens full of blooming flowers. Another complex with inhabited caves will surprise you with its rock monastery Selime, whose towers are made of rocky “mushrooms”.
It’s time to leave our cave and right after leaving our beloved guest house, we will go to the medieval town of Derinkuyu. From the outside it looks like it’s just a hole in the ground, but it actually has 8 floors with canteens, places to stay overnight, mines and even a church! After visiting Derinkuyu, we will visit the capital of Cappadocia – Nevsehir, where we will buy souvenirs for ourselves and our relatives back home. In the evening we go home via Istanbul or Antalya.
We’ll get in touch with you.
Winter hike in the snowy Polish Tatras. In four days we will summit Kasprowy Wierch, walk through the marvelous Valley of Five Lakes, visit Morksie Oko and spend fantastic time in the mountains.
Eleven days in the Swedish Lapland, surrounded by untouched nature. Rough Nordic tundra together with Scandinavian weather make this destination not the easiest for vacation, but the experience beyond the polar circle is something unique and priceless.
