OVERVIEW - MOUNTAIN BIKE TURKEY


Book this trip more than 4 months in advance and save 5%!

Mountain bike Turkey with us as we explore the heart of one of Turkey's most impressive and unusual regions. Cappadocia is a land of underground cities and Roman ruins, deep canyons and snow-capped mountains, fairy chimneys (unique rock formations) and stone villages. We'll bike this region of Turkey via winding trails that take us along rivers, into canyons, over small mountain passes, and through traditional farming villages. With about 80% of our trails off-road, we're able to get off the beaten path to explore the 'real' Turkey, while still taking in Cappadocia's most famous sights. At the end of each day we'll reward ourselves with stunning accommodation (including a luxury cave hotel that dates back to the 5th century) and delicious Turkish cuisine. Thanks to full van support as we bike Turkey, this 7-day tour is suitable for most riders, although you should have some prior mountain biking experience.

Additional departures are available, so if you are interested in biking Turkey please email us.

TESTIMONIALS
Jonathan & Tracey (USA): Extremely well organized by Mehmet. Great places to stay, especially the sacred house hotel. Thoughtfully constructed days on the bike, but very flexible to anything we wanted to do. Our guide, Mehmet, was simply fantastic and above all expectations, He went above and beyond on every occasion, he knew his material, had perfect english, was fun to be with and was very focused on our enjoyment of the trip.
