Full description

Discover Cappadocia's Northern region with a guide who will lead you to the ancient frescoes and stunning landscapes of this UNESCO World Heritage destination. Travel through the fairy chimneys of Paşabağ, explore rock-cut caves in Göreme, and visit a traditional pottery workshop in Avanos

Start with a stop in the heart of Cappadocia at Uchisar Castle, named after the giant rock standing in the center of town. The Castle is located on the highest peak in the area, offering unparalleled views of Erciyes Mountain and Cappadocia.

Then, visit the Open Air Museum to see monasteries, chapels, and churches from the Middle Ages. This place was a significant Christian education center. Be amazed by the architecture and very well-preserved frescoes.

Soak in the magnificent Göreme panorama as you witness views of the town and the surrounding fairy chimneys. Travel to Paşabağ (Pasha’s Vineyard) and admire its impressive soil pillars in a vineyard. Click photos of its famed three-headed fairy chimneys.

Then, after a short drive, find yourself at the surreal Devrent Valley. Look out in awe at its lunar landscape of small, pointed fairy chimneys and unique rock formations. Unwind over a traditional lunch before continuing the trip.

Afterward, be driven to the small town of Avanos, known for being a terracotta industry center since 3000 BC. The source of potters' clay is the Kizilirmak River that flows through the town. Visit a traditional pottery workshop and have the opportunity to watch the marvelous craftsmanship firsthand.

For the final stop, be led to 3 amazing fairy chimneys near Urgüp, also known as the Three Graces or the Three Beauties. Listen as your guide reveals the charming story behind this wonderful natural structure.
