Urban, Rural and Coastal Turkey

What we came up with

From the contemporary and buzzing Istanbul, to rural and remote Cappadocian caves, or the volcanic landscape of the stunning Aegean Coast, there is a little something for everyone in Turkey. This itinerary combines them all, for an experience that is big on both sights and serenity.

Itinerary Highlights

  • Istanbul - 4 Days
    Istanbul is a bustling metropolis of culture, architecture and bizarre bazaars. A magical blend of east meets west; Istanbul is a vibrant location to start off any trip to Turkey. Originally a bank, Vault Karakoy hotel is perfectly placed to explore the bohemian Beyoglu, or historic Sultanahmet. Unparalleled views can also be found across the Bosphorus Strait that separates Asia from Europe, and having taken this in over a cup of mint tea, the hubbub of the city can continue to be explored.

  • Cappadocia - 3 Days
    A descent to the Cappadocia caves and underground cities will feel a world away from the bustle of Istanbul. Staying in the original Gamirasu Cave Hotel, a chic and comfortable bolthole awaits, laying bare the work of ancient civilisations. Mountain biking is the ideal way to take it all in.

  • Aegean Coast - 5 Days
    After and active week of exploration, it is certainly time for some well-deserved R&R along the pristine turquoise waters of the Aegean coastline. The elegant Mandarin Oriental Bodrum is the perfect blend of chic and show stopping beauty. Looming large over Paradise Bay, efficient service, tasty treats and trendy bars, and a two private beaches make for the ideal wind-down before returning home.
