While you are in Cappadocia you are going to have the opportunity to taste the historical Pottery Kebab at lunch on one of the day tours.

 

Turkish Bath:

Especially for the night arrival to Cappadocia we recommend you experience the Turkish Bath at a real historical bath (hamam). This is your chance to be treated like an Ottoman Sultan. Reservations can easily be made at one of the baths in Cappadocia-Urgup.

 

Cappadocia Horseback Riding:

Horseback riding is another possible activity in Cappadocia. If you have interest in riding a horse please inform us in advance.

 

Cappadocia Hot-Air Balloon Ride:

A Hot-Air Balloon ride in Cappadocia is a once in a lifetime experience for most people. With your reservation we will meet you at your hotel and take you to the pre-launch site. Choose your flight according to your budget and time schedule. All options ensure that you are back at your hotel in time to join a daily tour or just to make the most of your time in this amazing region. Beware: If you do not make your reservation ahead of time you may miss the opportunity take a balloon ride. Make sure your balloon reservations are made for the first flight on the first morning after arriving at your Cappadocia hotel.

 

Jeep Safari Cappadocia:

One of the most exciting adventures in Cappadocia is exploring the region in an off-road vehicle. Our Jeep Safari tour offers you the best of the best: open-top jeep vehicles for unobstructed views of the valleys, churches and other cultural highlights. We take you to the hard-to-find places and away from the crowds for spectacular views and the excitement of traveling off-road in the unique landscapes of Cappadocia - all in one day or 2 hour express safari tours.

 

Rugs and Kilims:

Cappadocia is famous as a hand made carpet weaving centre. There are many carpet shops all around Turkey. If you would like to experience carpet weaving, Cappadocia is a great place to do it. If you would like to purchase a real hand made carpet, you should visit the carpet workshop and witness the weaving process so as to get a good idea of the value of the carpets.

The big carpet factories have interesting demonstrations which are well worth seeing. Some of the big stores are cooperatives subsidized by the State. If you really want to do your bit to support the local economy, carpet villages are the correct place.

At the end of the day, you don't have to buy, you can just have an enjoyable time looking and learning about the art and science of Turkish rugs while enjoying a cup or two of Turkish tea.

 

Pottery:

The famous city of Avanos, whose name in old times was Venessa, overlooks the longest river of Turkey, the Kizilirmak (Red River), which also divides Avanos from the rest of Cappadocia. The most famous historical feature of Avanos, which is still relevant and very visible today, is its production of earthenware pottery. The ceramic trade in this district and its countless pottery factories find their origins with the Hittites and the ceramic clay from the red silt of the Kizilirmak. You can even try your hand at throwing a pot under the tutelage of a master craftsman.

 

Onyx:

The word itself means nail in Greek. It is beneficial to the skin, nails, and hair. It belongs to the oxite mineral family and consists of mangan calcium. Onyx is volcanic and from the mineral family stone having 6.5 degree hardness and 2.5 degree instensity. It is mined in Brazil, India, Arabia and Turkey.

In Turkey it's found in Bolu, Manisa, Balikesir and especially Cappadocia. Onyx has twelve different colors worldwide and seven of them are from Cappadocia.

 

Cappadocia Dolls:

Soganli is a peaceful little village set on a hillside in the Soganli Valley. Sparsely populated by an older generation as the young have moved out. A beautiful rock cut church lies a short walk away with black frescoes mostly undisturbed by defacement.At the entrance to the village sit old women who make the famous traditional Soganli dolls. They will show you how they make them as well as sell you some - they are well worth it for presents and help support the old people of the village. True Cappadocia is found here, where it has been for a thousand years.

 

Cappadocia Books:

You can buy books about Cappadocia when you arrive at any stop or museum in Cappadocia for around 8-10 USD, but they're not as detailed as you might expect.
