Cappadocia


Travel and LeisureFodorsUSA TodayNew York TimesNational GeographicWashington PostVogue

Cappadocia is a land of wild nature and deep-rooted history, all wrapped up together.

Located in the central plains of Anatolia, the Cappadocia region is marked by its wild and expansive nature. The landscape ripples with rock formations, from tufted fairy chimneys to pockmarked mountains in varying colors of sand and rust. At dawn, the sky is filled with hot air balloons soaring above the vibrant landscape. Cappadocia is a land of adventure, where you can go hiking, biking, and exploring, where you can find yourself high above the ground or deep under it, where ancient history shimmers just under the surface. Cappadocia is a land full of inexplicable magic.

The region encompasses a handful of Turkish provinces, but this isn’t a region you come to for urban centers. Cappadocia is all about nature and history. Various rock churches are spread across the region, and there is still a robust pottery tradition that flourishes here. The central town of Goreme is a good jumping-off point, with easy access to the Goreme Open Air Museum and various hiking routes, while the towns of Uchisar, Avanos, Urgup, and Ortahisar are also interesting places to stay and explore. Cappadocia is the perfect place to hop in a car-- or on a mountain bike, or on your own two feet-- and experience all the wonder the region has to offer.
