Best Honeymoon in Cappadocia, Turkey - Things to do in Cappadocia, Turkey

The nearest airports to Cappadocia are Nevsehir Kapadokya Airport and Kayseri Airport. Cappadocia is around 40 KM from Nevsehir Airport and 70 KM from Kayseri Airport and takes around 1 hour to reach there.

Istanbul Ataturk Airport

From Istanbul, We were flying from European side so Istanbul Ataturk Airport was more convenient for us. There were more flights from Istanbul Ataturk Airport to Kayseri rather than Nevsehir Kapadokya Airport so we decided to take a flight to Kayseri.

Our Journey to Cappadocia:

We had an early morning flight from Istanbul to Kayseri for 1 hour and 25 minutes. The Kayseri Airport wasn’t so big, it hardly took us 10-15 minutes for the baggage collection and exiting the Airport.

Istanbul Ataturk Airport

There are three ways to reach Cappadocia from Kayseri Airport. By Taxi, Bus or Drive on your own. You can also check with your hotel. Most of the hotels also had shuttle service from Airport for their guests.

There were lot of Rent a Car companies in the Airport and we had rented a car from Sixt and started our road trip towards Cappadocia.

The drive was quite smooth except a patch of around 5 KM. The scenic beauty was so amazing - it started with a Green fields and gradually turned into Arid land. We had stopped for a while to enjoy the beautiful weather and scenery.

On the way to Göreme, Cappadocia

There are few small towns like Göreme, Uçhisar, Ürgüp, Avanos and Ortahisar with lots of different options to stay in traditional hotels or Cappadocia special Cave Hotels. For the first timers, I would suggest Göreme or Uçhisar for staying.

Finally, we reached our Cave hotel around 1 PM. Our hotel was in Göreme around 150 meters from the central Market of the town. The hotel also had a free parking space which was highly convenient for us.

Our Suite:

We had two days and one night stay in Göreme, Cappadocia. We had booked a luxurious Suite called “Cappadocia Cave Suites”. The Suite was so cozy with a great ambiance of traditional Turkish bed cover and sofa sets.

We had a small separate living area with a LED and bedroom with an attached washroom.

The Suite also offered traditional breakfast and fine dining options and Terrace Cafe with a wonderful view of the valley and best place to enjoy the sunset. The terrace is also a perfect spot to enjoy the sun rise with an amazing view of hot air balloons.

Things to do in Cappadocia

Balloon Ride:

We had one of the most romantic experiences of Hot Air balloon Ride over the magical valleys of Cappadocia.

There were hundreds of balloons in the Air with a beautiful view of the Sun rise. The view was so alluring, it can’t be explained in words.

Quad Biking:

When we were on our way to Göreme, we saw lots of Quad bikers on the road. We had already made up our mind that this is what we want to do in the valleys of Cappadocia. After reaching our Suite, we dropped our luggage and went straight to Göreme town to rent a Quad bike.

You can also book a guided tour but we didn’t want to restrict ourselves. We preferred to explore and enjoy the different tracks with our Quad bike.

Mountain Biking:

The best way to explore Cappadocia and surroundings is with a Mountain Bike. It’s also quite cheap and convenient to rent a Mountaine bike. There are lots of small companies in Göreme town who were renting the bike.

Exploring Love Valley in Cappadocia

We had rented a bike for 2 days and explored all the surrounding areas and valleys. It’s a bit difficult to ride a bike in Valleys but in a minimum time, you can explore a lot of valleys.
