Turkey Cappadocia Singletrack

Mountain Bike Holiday

Cappadocia is Turkey’s mountain bike paradise. Its dramatic volcanic landscape offers challenging and rewarding slick rock trails, lush green singletrack and a world of caves, canyons and secret paths to explore. The Cappadocia region has what many believe is Turkey’s most stunning and varied landscapes, including areas designated as World Heritage sites by UNESCO – one look at our photo gallery will give you a taste of this, but the reality is a whole lot more breath-taking.

In demanding mountain bike terrain it’s important to have experts leading a tour, and for this trip, you will be looked after by two highly experienced mountain bike guides – one local and one UK MBLA qualified guide (Mountain Bike Leader Award). Their aim is to give you the best mountain biking experience on these seldom-visited trails while keeping things flowing smoothly and safely throughout the holiday.

Tour Highlights

  • Explore the canyons and ridge rides of Cappadocia
  • DiscoverDerinkuyu - the vast and magnificent underground city
  • Stay in traditional cave-hotels carved into the mountain landscape
  • Ride through the Fairy Chimneys (visit our flickr page)


Terrain: The whole tour is made up of fast flowing singletrack that criss-crosses the mountains of the Cappadocia region, which sits right in the centre of Turkey. These trails have a wonderful flow, sometimes smooth and fast, sometimes peppered with rocks for some technical challenges, or slimming down to a pencil line, slicing deep into the slopes of a canyon. The nature of the landscape means steep climbs and descents are common on this trip, so good fitness and ability level are required.


Support vehicle: A vehicle will transport luggage and meet the group periodically each day for water replenishments and any equipment checks or changes. The nature of the trails means that (as any mountain biker would hope!) vehicles cannot follow.
