Whimsical Cappadocia in Turkey is one of the world's most magical and photogenic regions, with an abundance of stunning photo locations.
Staying in a premium boutique cave hotel, we will take unique photos featuring the fairy chimneys and the hot air balloons, take a balloon ride (optional) for aerial photos, discover the incredible scenery from the best viewpoints, and enjoy the local food and culture.
As if plucked from a fairytale and set down upon the stark Anatolian plains, Cappadocia is a geological oddity of honeycombed hills and towering boulders of otherworldly beauty.
Due to its rocky formation, Cappadocia has been a hiding place for millennia, and most notably for the Christians in the fourth century who were petrified to face the wrath of Rome. These people weren’t just “hiding,” they were creating. We will see literal cave chapels replete with stunning frescoes. You will see that even in a time of great duress, these people managed to establish a place of incredible beauty – a sanctuary within the rocks.
Everywhere you look, soft volcanic rock has been formed into what are colloquially known as “fairy chimneys,” as well as other structures. The ground is cut, carved, and battle worn, which means there is no shortage of caves, underground tunnels and bizarre formations. There is, quite literally, a whole world that you can’t see with the naked eye when you’re visiting Cappadocia.
Because of the region’s unique landscape, one of the most popular things to do here is to ride a hot air balloon. Early in the morning, just before sunrise, hundreds of colorful balloons dot the sky. Spectacular from the ground or from the air, it’s an unforgettable experience and a must-do in Cappadocia.
