Programme of Activity
- Goreme Panorama
It dominates the most magnificent scenery around Göreme and was entirely formed in the Neogene period. Distinguishing itself with its extensive geological formations, these extremely typical morphological structures of Cappadocia are the result of thousands of years of continuous erosion that has transformed the tuff beds into the strangest pyramids and cones.
- Underground City
Underground City, has all the usual amenities found in other underground complexes across Cappadocia, such as wine and oil presses, stables, cellars, storage rooms, refectories, and chapels. Unique to the underground complex and located on the second floor is a spacious room with a barrel vaulted ceiling. It has been reported that this room was used as a religious school and the rooms to the left were studies. Between the third and fourth levels is a vertical staircase. This passage way leads to a cruciform church on the lowest level. The large 55 m ventilation shaft appears to have been used as a well. The shaft also provided water to both the villagers above and, if the outside world was not accessible, to those in hiding.
- Ihlara Valley
Ihlara Valley is also fascinating with its natural beauties. Its lush vegetation, cool waters and rocky formations offer the perfect setting for those who want to go hiking. It is possible to experience unforgettable moments by walking in the valley, listening to bird sounds and feeling the peace offered by nature.
Lunch in the Valley, experience the different types of Turkish foods.

It is a hidden gem nestled amidst the spectacular landscapes of the region and offers a serene and tranquil escape for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts.
The name "Nar" translates to "pomegranate" in Turkish, and the lake is named after the pomegranate trees that adorn its shores, adding to its charm and allure.
