The Cappadocia terrain looks something like a lunar landscape. Spectacular to view by early morning, daylight and twilight. Fortunately the Quad bikes take a tour of this unique area, for your delight. Anyone familiar with the quads (or ATVs as they are sometimes known) will understand the adrenalin rush of travelling along dusty, muddy roads into the unknown. This tour is somewhat different, although the adrenalin rush is sill there. Cappadocia is famed for its fairy tale chimneys and ancient underground cities, for its mysterious rock formations and ancient christian monasteries. Riding your quad through this landscape is truly enchanting.
You will ride through such whimsical canyons as Swords Valley, so named for the tall swordlike volcanic formations. Other points of interest will be Cavusin old Greek Village, Rose and Red Valley, and the charmingly named Love Valley, named thus for its romantic backdrop and because it is here where so many couples choose to propose and accept!
As your ride your ATV through this unique volcanic landscape you will marvel at mother nature and her survival techniques, while mastering the ATV as you ride along.
In 2022, price of Cappadocia Quad Safari is 20 € for single quad bike, 25 € for double quad bike. Quad riding lasts 2 hours.
Everyday, all year round for 2 hours. There are 3 sessions: Sunrise, Daytime, Sunset.
Your tour will begin with a transfer from your Cappadocia hotel at one of three points during the day. There is a morning, afternoon and (throughout the summer months) a sunset tour. So whether you like the early morning sunrise, the warmer midday, or the glory of a Cappadocian sunset, the choice is yours.
You will be taken to the base, for a meet and greet with your instructor guide for the day. You will be given a safety talk regarding the quads, your own safety helmet, which is mandatory, and introduced to your quad for the session. A short test drive at the base and when everyone is ready your convoy can set off along the valleys of Cappadocia.
The tour lasts approximately 2 hours with many stops along the way for photographs or just to take a break, taking in the many sights of the valleys as you go. It is fair to say that there are few tours like this for its unique scenery. In fact you will be driving through a Unesco World Heritage Site.
Once you have finished the course and returned to base, happy and dusty, you will have a chance to view any pictures or DVDs that have been taken, of your tour, with an option to buy if you wish.
Your transport will then return you to your hotel or pick up point.
