Cappadocia ligger i det sentrale Anatolia midt i Tyrkia. Området er visuelt unikt og kjent for tre ting som alle er relatert til den underliggende geologien; de karakteristiske skorsteinene i stein (fairy chimneys), underjordiske byer og de kristne kirkene skåret ut i stein.

De karakteristiske steinskorsteinene i Cappadocia er på grunn av erosjon av hard vulkansk stein som ligger over mykere steinlag. Denne geologiske særheten er også ansvarlig for de mange grottene og underjordiske husene i området og forklarer hvorfor området har vært kontinuerlig bebodd siden bronsealderen.

Navnet Cappadocia kommer fra uttrykket «de vakre hesters land» så dette er et veldig passende sted for en rideferie.

Det er to ulike reiseruter i Cappadocia avhengig av om du forestrekker å bo på hotell eller er fornøyd med camping. Det er normalt mulighet til å besøke Goreme Open Air Museum for å se de fryktinngyvende malte kirkene bygget av eksil kristne under romertiden. Et høydepunkt for mange er en flytur med varmluftsballong over steinskorsteinene. Det er uansett et flott syn å stå på bakken å se på alle ballongene i luften. I tillegg arrangers det turen Phrygian way 1 gang i løpet av sommeren.

Hestene er en blanding av rene arabere, araber-anatolian og akhal-teke (tinker) krysninger. Noen er veldig livlige og sterk i galopp. Terrenget er variert med noen bratte opp og nedstigninger og teknisk ridning. Det er også mulighet for noen lange galopper. Du må være en trygg rytter med god kontroll over hesten din på tur i både trav og galopp.

I løpet av turen «Cappadocia Highlights» bor du bo på hotell, vanligvis Queen´s Cave i Ortahisar, men av og til kan vi bruke andre hoteller av samme kvalitet. Det unike «hule» hotellet kombinerer hus og huleboliger hvor alle er restaurert for å beholde sine unike strukturer, samtidig som det tilbyr en høy kvalitet. Fordelen med hulerommene er at de er kjølige om sommeren og varme om vinteren. De vulkanske bergarter som kalles «tuff» har en naturlig egenskap som gjør at temperaturen i rommet vil være mellom 13° C til 15° C grader hele året.

På «Fairy Chimney Ride» er de to første og to siste nettene på hotell, mens du camper på de andre nettene. Alt camping utstyr har stedet, med unntak av sovepose som du bør ta med deg selv. Leirens støttemannskap, inkludert kokk, reiser med bil hvor også all bagasjen transporteres for gjestene. Campingplassen er behagelig, men ikke luksuriøs. Det er  skumgummimadrasser i teltene. Normalt brukes de store toroms telt med egen del for bagasje og hvor kan skifte klær. Hver person vil ha et separat soverom, enten den ene halvparten av disse store teltene eller sitt eget mindre telt. Det er med fullt utstyrt kjøkken samt bord og stoler for bespisning.
