Cappadocia Buggy Adventure
Cappadocia is a world heritage site that offers a unique confluence of natural and cultural beauty. The tour is a true adventure into the less-traveled and otherworldly landscape of Cappadocia, in the heart of Turkey.
From the comfort of a Buggy we will explore the vastness and beauty of the many wonders that await in Cappadocia. We will visit the unique geological features called “fairy chimneys” that were formed from the soft volcanic ash that constitutes much of the rock formations in the area. Ancient cultures dug into this soft stone to create Bronze Age dwellings and underground cities like Kaymakli and Derinkuyu, that was eventually used as hiding places by early Christians. We will explore all of it from the comfort and efficiency of a Buggy.
In addition, we will explore the sensational canyons and remote, towering peaks of this surreal landscape. We will experience mountains with a height of up to 3,700 meters above sea level and travel along ancient cart roads and trade routes, some of which are so narrow that we will have to assist one another in getting the Buggies through. This is a truly magical, once in a lifetime experience that will leave you wanting more.
