Anatolia

Anatolia tailor-made holidays

Introduction

Anatolia covers a vast region of central Turkey, and although lacking in coastline, the region still covers a diverse collection of geological landscapes and historic wonders. Why not take a dip in the famous mineral spa at Pamukkale or go in search of frescoed rock caverns at Cappadocia, before taking in the immense stone carvings at Midas ≈ûehri?

This region is also home to Turkey's modern capital Ankara, where you will find the world class Museum of Anatolian Civilisations, housing archaeological collections that span the ancient world. Another popular site in Ankara is the city's thriving old town, but be aware that the sprawling apartment blocks and modern city drown out much of the town's original charm.

Then there is Turkey's Lakeland province, beginning at Beysehir Lake National Park. To the west of Konya, this region stretches across Anatolia in the direction of the coast, comprising an area of immense natural beauty and tranquility. For a more challenging trip head off on foot, taking the St Paul's trail as it heads away from Lake Eğirdir into the Torors Mountains.

Where to go in Anatolia

Pamukkale

The white mineral formations at Pamukkale have become recognised worldwide for their unusual tiered formation, hanging like rice paddies along the edge of a 100m high plateau. Over the years water cascading from calcium rich springs has formed hard travertine rims that collect into misty pools. …

Cappadocia

Between the 7th and 11th centuries AD Cappadocia became a refuge for persecuted Christians, who carved a life for themselves from the soft volcanic tuff that is so abundant here. Ever since the arrival of these early inhabitants people have been carving their homes out of the hillside, creating an …

Konya

If Istanbul is the cultural capital of Turkey, then Konya is the religious capital. Drawing people from all over the Muslim world, the Mausoleum of Celaleddin Rumi, or Mevlâna, is an important pilgrimage site because of Rumi's role in founding the Whirling Dervishes, a sect of Islam famed for its c…
