Tour highlights

During the tour, you will visit the unique geological features called “fairy chimneys” that were formed from the soft volcanic ash that constitutes much of the rock formations in the area.  Ancient cultures dug into this soft stone to create Bronze Age dwellings and underground cities like Kaymakli and Derinkuyu, that was eventually used as hiding places by early Christians. You will explore all of it with an Enduro bike. 

In addition, you will explore the sensational canyons and remote, towering peaks of this surreal landscape. You will experience mountains with a height of up to 3,700 meters above sea level and travel along ancient cart roads and trade routes, some of which are so narrow that you will have to assist one another in getting the Enduros through. 

This is a truly magical, once-in-a-lifetime experience that will leave you wanting more.

This tour is an adventurous exploration of the unique culture and otherworldly landscape of Cappadocia with a light Enduro which allows you to access parts you never explore by foot or with a car. The lodging, cuisine, and adventure are typically Anatolian style and will leave an impression that will last a lifetime.

Itinerary

This tour lasts for seven days, with five days of riding. The package includes six overnight stays including breakfast and dinner. There is no rest day during the stages of the trail.

On the first day of riding, you take a long ride from Aksaray to Nigde through the famous Ihlara Valley with a perfect lunch in a super relaxed place at the river feeding the Ilhara Valley. Overnight in Nigde.

The second day of the tour brings you on a round trip to the highest point of the tour in the Aladaglar Massive. You will try to go as much up as possible to reach the peaks in 3.700 meters depending on your level of riding.

For the less experienced, the XPOWER Adventures team has an alternative less exhausting route while the experts under you try to ride up a hiking path which can only be managed by helping together in the group.

The third day of the tour takes you to Göreme - the center of Cappadocia - riding over the highlands.

The fourth day is a relaxed day playing around in the sand rock formations for Göreme, a perfect day with a lot of fun testing the incredible grip in the sand rocks.

The fifth day of riding is a roundtrip visiting the famous Underground City of Derinkuyu which is a must to visit when you are in Cappadocia.

This tour is designed so that even novice riders and riders with medium-level skills enjoy the tour. For the more advanced riders, XPOWER Adventures has longer daily stages and some nice hard enduro tracks so that everyone will be happy and tired in the evening.

The daily stages are divided so that you stop for lunch in a local inn and take breaks in between where you can relax and have a snack to rest and refuel your body.

The length of the daily stages is dependent on the level of rider skill and can be around 120 to 200 kilometers long. XPOWER Adventures does provide an alternative route if riders become tired during the ride, either via gravel and asphalt road routes to the hotel.
