A very unique mountain biking holiday in Turkey , Cappadocia and the wild Taurus mountains.

Ride in one of the most amazing place on Earth!
This is a dream tour for those who like to ride on technical alpine trails and discover breathtaking scenery.

Turkey Cappadocia offers a fun and exceptionally varied terrain for mountain biking: plateaus, canyons and rocky labyrinths. This tour takes you along a wide network of 4x4 tracks, mule trails and single tracks in the heart of the most beautiful valleys, where erosion has transformed the soft rock into a colourful fairytale like landscape of rock and mineral sculpturesw. Along the way you will also discover the rich history and culture of this ancient melting pot, where the Hittites, Persians and early Christian communities left behind a wealth of original cave dwellings, rock churches and underground cities. During the tour, the picturesque villages of the region will welcome you with wonderful rich cultural encounters with its people and traditions.

Our secret spot : the wild Taurus mountains , situated south of Cappadocia. Here , no tourist, just amazing singletracks and authentic old turkish villages where you " must " stop for a a turkish tea and just enjoy the local ambiance!
