Horse Riding Holiday in Turkey

Discover Cappadocia on the horseback! In the heart of Anatolia, Cappadocia is an extraordinary region where nature and man have united to shape the most amazing landscape. Over the centuries, in the high plateau of soft volcanic rock, erosion formed a multitude of valleys, rocky outcrops. The first generations of Christians found refuge in the area and carved homes, churches, and underground cities in Cappadocia’s tender rock. This fairytale-like area with extraordinary rock formations, valleys, caves, and ancient churches has been one of the biggest tourist attractions inviting travelers from all over the world. Get ready to wander in the beautiful region!
