THINGS YOU SHOULDN’T MISS AT CAPPADOCIA
-Let the fairy tale begin!- After visiting, the only word you have to describe it is…pure magic! From Goreme Open Air Museum to the monks valley, from Esentepe village to Avanos, it is easy to see why a lot of people consider this one of the places they have to visit at least once in their lifetime. Goreme Open Air Museum is another of Turkey’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. It is a monastic complex where churches are carved in the rock and the frescoes retain their beautiful colors. There even are refectories with tables and chairs that are also carved in the rock. You’ll surely had never imagined anything like this could possibly exist! From an awe-inspiring underground city to breathtaking skyline vistas, this city offers an experience that feels nothing less than magic.
READY FOR RED VALLEY HIKE & SUNSET VIEWPOINT
When it comes to hiking in Cappadocia, it is hard to go past Red Valley. The Sharp sandstone ridges glow a deep, vibrant red as the sun burns into the unique landscape in the last moments of the sunset each night. If you only have a couple of nights in Cappadocia, but this one up high on the list for sunset spots. Whether you hike or not, this is one of the must-visit places in Cappadocia.

FLY IN A HOT AIR BALLOON AT SUNRISE
The Cappadocia hot air balloons are fast-becoming one of the most common travel bucket list items in the world. It’s not hard to see why as you seamlessly float above the historic cave dwellings of Goreme Town with over 100 other balloons at sunrise in what can only be likened to a fairytale scene. Each year more than half a million people enjoy hot air ballooning in Cappadocia, which is an incredible number and makes this region the number one hot air balloon destination in the world. I think half of the spectacle is seeing all the other balloons in the air at the same time, not just the epic landscape you are flying over. You can check our epic sunrise balloon ride tours if you want to enjoy it!
EXPLORE THE STONE CAVES AT GOREME OPEN-AIR MUSEUM
The Goreme Open-Air Museum is one of the most popular attractions and historic sites in Cappadocia with an audio-tour guiding you through the ancient paintings, churches and cave houses from centuries ago. The Goreme Open-Air Museum is very close to the city-center in Goreme, which is the most popular town in Cappadocia. It is possible to walk to the Goreme Open Air museum from the town-center and would take about 15-minutes and is a little bit uphill.

EXPLORE IHLARA VALLEY
The Ihlara Valley is an incredible gorge with a stunning river running right down the heart of the valley for 16km within the volcanic rock. It is near the province of Aksaray but still considered part of the southern Cappadocia region. It’s a great spot for a relatively easy walk amidst some peaceful, leafy nature as well as being a hub for cave churches, of which you will find many along the trail.

DISCOVER THE DERINKUYU UNDERGROUND VILLAGE
Derinkuyu Underground City cave system is one of the most remarkable things to see in Cappadocia. Walk down through more than five levels of the cave system, which once housed over 20,000 people and their livestock! Exploring these ancient tunnels and cave systems will be definitely one of your favorite things to do in Cappadocia and I highly recommend it as this experience is quite unique.
