Flying a hot air balloon is a magical, soul-lifting experience. It’s quiet, calm and unbelievably relaxing. And flying in a hot air balloon in Cappadocia is even better. Because the landscape in this part of Turkey is dominated by the so called “fairy chimneys” – stone structures beyond comparison.
Cappadocia is known around the world as one of the best places to fly with hot air balloons. The spectacular surrealistic landscapes combined with excellent flying conditions allow the balloons to gently drift over and between fairy chimneys, pigeon houses hewn into the unique rock formations, orchards and vineyards – through impressive valleys, each with distinctive rock formations, colors and features – and then float up over rippled ravines for breathtaking views over the region.
With its mix of naturally formed rounded and jagged rock, hill, valley, and chimney formations in hues ranging from clays to pinks, Cappadocia looks like it could only exist in a fairy tale.
The heart of Turkey’s Anatolia region, Cappadocia encompasses hamlets in the NevÅŸehir Province including Göreme, Urgüp, and Selime. Despite its relative small size, the region is one of Turkey’s tourism capitals. History buffs are drawn here for its storied past—it is relevant to the origins of Christianity—and outdoorsy types for its extensive network of trails and activities offered. Beyond that, though, many come just to see the seemingly unbelievable place with their own eyes, whether from the ground or more than a thousand feet in the air.
"Cappadocia," or "Kapadokya" in Turkish, actually means "land of the beautiful horses." You can catch a glimpse of long-mane horses galloping or grazing on the countryside, and horseback riding is one of the many outdoors activities—there’s also bird watching, for example—for exploring the countryside.
Cappadocia’s tranquil landscape, unhurried pace, and temperate weather make it the ideal backdrop for unplugging. People spend hours lounging on outdoor terraces or in the caves, especially when the day starts with a balloon ride in the wee hours of the morning.
For pampering and relaxation in true Turkish fashion, schedule a trip to the hammam, or Turkish bath. Turkish baths are a historic tradition and central element of Turkish culture. At a hammam, it’s all about the business of cleansing and relaxing. Men and women have separate facilities and are tended to by people of their same sex. Bath packages often include a mud mask, access to the sauna, pools, showers, and a quiet room, and an attentive scrub-down cleansings and massage.
Hammams aren’t just for tourists—locals frequent them, too—so feel free to ask around to see which places people prefer.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and every day in Cappadocia starts with a spread. Traditional Turkish breakfast consists of cheeses, breads, olives, tomatoes, cucumbers, eggs, jam, and honey, all fresh. Turkish tea also is consumed with breakfast and throughout the day. It is a strong, black tea served in an hourglass-shaped glass—no milk, but honey and sugar often are added, and drinkers dilute the tea with hot water.
One of the most beloved foods in Turkey is kebab, which is the name for skewered meat, or sometimes more generally used to refer to flame-cooked meat. A variety of kebabs exist, and the specialty in Cappadocia is the testi kebab. Testi kebab is a stew of meat and vegetables baked in a fire and served in a clay pot, with bread or foil covering the opening.
The region also is one of Turkey’s wine capitals, with vineyards nestled into the region’s many valleys. The practice of winemaking here dates back thousands of years and the area’s indigenous grapes are Kalecik Karasi, Bogazkere, and Öküzgözü (red) and Emir and Narince (white). Visit the winery Kocabag or schedule a multi-stop tour with Vinotolia.
At times the surroundings in Cappadocia are evocative of a fairy tale, other times a lunar landscape, and then, when peering up the caves, the Flintstones. Proprietors in Cappadocia have made the most of the area’s natural resources, updating carved-out cave dwellings from caveman to contemporary. And these cave dwellings get outfitted with all the top amenities from high-end to hostel, so visitors on all budgets can access an earthy abode.
