Immerse yourself in a timeless adventure with our Horseback Riding Tours in Cappadocia, a unique facet of Travel in Turkey. The Cappadocian landscape, renowned for its vast plains, undulating valleys, and untamed ravines, presents the perfect backdrop for horseback riding. The name 'Cappadocia' is thought to derive from “Catpatuka,” meaning “Land of Beautiful Horses,” and this region's connection with horses dates back to the mid-1400s. Cappadocian horses, famed for their strength and agility, are believed to be descended from pure Arabian stock.

Choose your preferred horse and join us as we traverse the trails of Cappadocia. Explore the genuine allure of this historical and captivating region, where every path leads to a story and every gallop brings you closer to the heart of Cappadocia’s enchanting landscape. This tour is not just a ride; it's a journey into the soul of a land where horses have been integral to its history and culture.

Tour Details

Surround yourself with the beautiful natural scenery of Cappadocia, by exploring the captivating landscape and stunning views around Göreme, on a 2- or 4-hour trail ride.

With our 2-hour excursions (50 Euros per person), you will discover some of the remarkably distinctive features in the area – Sword valley, Meskendir valley, Rose valley and Love valley. We will roam through orchards and vineyards, whilst admiring the magical fairy chimneys and ancient churches as we wind our way up the volcanic stone hills. Enjoy the stunning views at a leisurely pace on the back of your own special Anatolian horse.
We also offer 4-hour excursions (90 Euros per person), which allows you to explore more of the area including the beautiful Pigeon valley, the White valley and the Zemi valley.
Tours can also be tailored to your requirements, including private full-day and multi-day excursions. If you are looking for an unforgettable experience, please enquire about our full-moon tours, which offers you the chance to camp overnight in the mountains under the stars with a romantic bonfire/campfire (weather permitting).
