For a nature lover, Cappadocia means being fascinated by the miracles of nature at every point along the Cappadocia region. But to be intertwined with magical nature and to breathe the fresh air of Cappadocia, you can choose the unique Green tour, which is mostly in the open air, which allows you to walk for miles along the beautiful valleys. In addition to the Green tour, you can also consider adding an ATV quad tour or a Jeep safari tour so you can ride inside the magical valleys of Cappadocia.
We will pick you up from your hotel in Cappadocia between 09:30 and 10:00, and depart for our full-day Green tour with Derinkuyu Underground City & Ihlara Valley Tour.
Our first stop is Derinkuyu underground city where dwellings with stables, cellars, storage rooms, refectories, churches, and wineries were used as refuges for the Christian communities.
The depth of Derinkuyu underground city is approximately 85 meters. This underground city has all the features found in an underground city. (Barn, cellar, dining hall, church, wine house, etc.) Also, there is a missionary school on the 2nd floor. The ceiling of the school, which is a large area, is covered with a barrel vault, which is not common in underground cities. The spaces to the left of the hall are study rooms.
We will continue our tour by transferring to the Ihlara canyon zone also known as Grand canyon created from the ashes of the volcanic Mt Hasan. After we will do enjoy hiking through the canyon, which is watered with the Melendiz stream. Rock-cut churches spread across a local natural plantation will deeply surprise you with their successfully drawn representation from the Bible.
We will have our delicious lunch in a local restaurant in Belisirma by the stream followed by paying a visit to Selime with a hollowed-out citadel and churches where stunning fairy chimneys rest on the steep hillside.
End of the tour and return to your hotel about 17:00
