Walking in Cappadocia August 2016

Walking in Cappadocia

This was an excellent and highly enjoyable holiday amidst a stunning landscape - featuring great walking, an informative and expert guide, lovely group of people, pleasant hotel and tasty food. Cappodocia is a relatively small area offering a wonderful variety of walks without involving too much travelling.
Just being in the peace and beauty of such a fantastic environment. The Turkish bath was a fun experience.
Fahti was knowledgeable, friendly and adaptable - able to flex the tour to suit the group's wishes and needs (e.g. adding in extra features of interest, being supportive to less fit walkers). He related well to local people we encountered and was helpful and considerate at all times.
The historical and cultural aspect of the area is fascinating. But don't expect too much of the frescoes in the cave churches. Most have not been preserved and many have suffered vandalism.
A photographer's paradise.

Walking in Cappadocia

Cappadocia is beautiful and I'm really glad I chose to go on this trip. You get to see so many different landscapes within a relatively small distance and walking through it all is such a good experience. On most days we didn't see any other walkers in the areas we were exploring and the peace and quiet away from it all was fantastic.
Walking the Red Valley and the high outcrop above it, fabulous!

Our group leader was very friendly and organised and seemed to know everyone in each small village we stopped in.

If you don't mind heights, or fancy challenging yourself if you're a bit scared of them, definitely take the opportunity for a hot air balloon ride.
Also, the walking is very manageable for people of low/medium fitness. I was a bit worried I hadn't got myself fit enough in the weeks leading up to the holiday, but it was all relatively easy walking with just a few short steep uphills here and there.

The Green Hotel is a bit basic, but does have spectacular views from the rooms and terrace.

Walking in Cappadocia

Based in one hotel with day excursions/walking trips. Amazing scenery. Love Cappadocia!!
The scenery, the hot air balloons every morning, the view from the plateau - the sight of an older group decending a steep slope with one gentleman, who was quite shaky on his legs and appeared to be in his late 70s, being stopped from toppling by someone behind him holding his belt from behind all the way down.

Our leader was very quiet and sweet, but not very engaging. His pace was good for the walking and he took care of those who struggled. He listened to what the group said they wanted and did his best to arrange it, particularly issues around food. He opened up more towards the end of the week, which was nice.

Do take walking poles, a hat, sun cream. I had walking boots, but some of the group got by with walking sandles - I preferred boots.

I really enjoyed this trip. The group were lovely. We were all women, apart from one man, which must have been a challenge for our guide! I have not laughed this much in years. The walks were mostly gentle, with only two days which were slightly more challenging. The scenery was just incredible. Those who had the hot air balloons said it was worth it and were proud of their certificates saying they had done it. The Turkish bath was good, although busy. Hotel staff lovely and friendly. Might do this trip again!

Walking in Cappadocia

Really good holiday, Fantastic scenery and setting. Hotel nice with friendly staff. Lovely to see the animals. A nice place to wander round on your own without getting hassled or lost.
There were a lot but I think getting up early and watching the balloons take off from the valley really had the wow factor. And the balloon trip was brilliant.

Fahti very informative and helpful, took on board a few suggestions made by members of the group.

Go with an open mind and expect to see lots of interesting things..

For light sleepers take ear plugs because there is a mosque opposite and when the call to prayer goes out at 5am the local dogs and cockerels join in! On the plus side you don't need an alarm clock and its great to get up early and watch the balloons!

Walking in Cappadocia

A great week of interesting walks through the various valleys of Cappadocia. Unique scenery and rock formations - a place not to be missed.
Although all the walks were good, my preference was the Ilhara valley. One of the reasons for this was the wildlife we saw beside the river that gave an additional dimension.
I also very much enjoyed seeing the hot air balloons passing over our hotel and getting up early on a couple of mornings to photograph them.

Ilhan was great. He managed the group and individuals very well and even managed to teach us some Turkish. We enjoyed his information about the area and specifically the places we visited. We also enjoyed his stories and jokes on the bus. There was some heavy rain during our week. Ilhan changed the itinerary around so that it did not spoil any of the walks and even found us a tea house to shelter in during a particularly heavy downpour.

No - the description in the brochure was clear. The walking was not arduous at all. Moderate was the rating and that described it well.

The Green Hotel was a good central place to stay. It was basic, but clean and comfortable. The food was good throughout the week, but not a huge variety - we were often given the same choices. So you needed to try each offered to get variety.
