TURKEY Why Go There?

A horseback riding holiday in Turkey is an equestrian and cultural experience not to be missed. Horseback riders from Asia and Europe arrived in Turkey in waves and the country's history is an amalgamation of both. Follow trails through the grand landscapes of Cappadocia, with natural rock formations towering above you, and ancient carved caves beneath. Embark on an incredible trail ride through the unusual beauty of Capadoccia or the Taurus mountains, discovering the rich local culture and heritage with knowledgeable guides.

Entry formalities

British nationals need a visa to enter Turkey. You can get an e-Visa online before you travel through the official Republic of Turkey e-Visa website.An e-Visa costs $35 (plus $1.05 service fee) and you can pay by credit or debit card. If you use this option, you should apply at least 48 hours before travel and can do so up to 3 months in advance. In case of technical problems at the Turkish port of entry, carry a printed copy of your e-Visa or keep an electronic copy on a smartphone or other device to show at immigration.

Turkish visit visas issued on arrival are valid for multiple stays up to a maximum of 90 days in a 180 day period. In case of problems with the computer systems at the Turkish port of entry, print off and carry a paper copy of your e-Visa, or make sure you have an electronic copy on a smart phone or other device to show to the immigration officer.

Make sure your passport has a blank page for the visa stamp. If it doesn't, the Turkish authorities will issue an ‘Entry-Exit form' and put your entry-exit stamp on there. You should carry this form with you in Turkey and present it to the border officers when you leave.

Turkey & Cappadocia on horseback

Turkey is filled with such strong history, Ancient Greece, Persian, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman empires have all left their mark on this eclectic country.  With a landscape more fitting to a fairytale, what better way is there to experience the beauty of the Cappadocia region than from horseback?

The distinctive rock chimneys oozing out above ground are as well known as the fascinating cavern architecture that is below ground. Riding over 200km on robust and sure-footed Arab and Arab crosses, our rides in Turkey offer a pacey riding adventure with plenty of opportunities for canters and gallops across the sandy terrain. Enjoy wonderful local cuisine and lots of Turkish black tea along the way.
