In the heart of old Asia Minor, 4,000 feet up on the Anatolian plain at the crossroads of ancient trade routes, lies one of Earth’s most haunting and surreal landscapes. Born of volcanoes and fashioned by wind and winter rains, Cappadocia’s extraordinary stalagmite pillars are known as “fairy chimneys”.

Once inhabited by Neolithic cavemen, the Cappadocian caves were a safe haven for early Christians seeking refuge from invading Arab armies. Of the region’s 500 underground cities, Kaymakli is the most famous, with its labyrinth of interconnecting tunnels and caves extending nine storeys and 170 feet below the surface.

Tour Martian landscapes and lunch with locals – a private Full Day Tour is included in the price of your holiday.
