About Middle Earth Travel/ Day Tours
Welcome to Middle Earth Travel... We are the trekking, hiking, walking, climbing outdoors and archeology guides of Turkey. We are based in Cappadocia, a very special region which resembles a magical fairy tale land. The remains of the millions years ago volcanic eruptions, shaped by the wind and rain for thousands of years, have formed one of natures most spectacular masterpieces: Strange rock formations, called: "fairy chimneys". Beautifully coloured valleys full of these 'fairy houses' have been a fantastic stage for some of the most important actors of known history, some of which are the Hittites, The Persians, Alexander the Great, Romans, Byzantines and Ottomans. Many of these caves are still decorated with icons and wall paintings from the early Christian times.

Lucky me! By just dropping in and taking to the crew at Middle Earth I was able to join the multi-day Kaçkar Summit Trek. Atil and Momo were a great team and while this was not Glamping all of our needs were met. The hike was challenging but Atil set an appropriate pace which enabled us to make great progress every day. We spent our evenings camped near Shepard campsites. Lots of variety on this hike. Mountain ascent, alpine meadows, ancient forest and amazing waterfalls. I highly recommend it.

They also were really helpfull with our request for a vegetarian lunch and brought us to a very nice restaurant. The agency also has a very good coffee bar and they serve craft beers.

We just finished an amazing 5 days of touring, hiking and road biking in Cappadocia for our honeymoon. We could not have worked with a better group. Atil and team are top-notch -- very professional, know all the best local trails and routes, provide great service-- Gaye and Hasan were both warm, helpful, and knowledgeable. Also appreciated the flexibility each day to really customize something that met our interests & needs. We saw so much beautiful scenery and also enjoyed the opportunity to eat good food, meet kind people, and sleep out under the stars. Thank you for everything Middle Earth!

I planned this trip three years ago, due to the pandemic it finally happened this year. What a fantastic experience for the 11 of us who walked the Lycian way (pirates walk) from Goynuk to Adrassan including the ascent of Mount Olympos. Our leader Kerem was someone who was at one with nature he gave us an experience of a life time we are talking about our trip three weeks on as if it was only yesterday. Middle Earth is an excellent company with first class communications, personal touch in all aspect of the tour, the information provided at every stage was succinct and clear. Deniz and Els were my link for three years and they did not disappoint throughout this period. I am so luck to have met them and am so grateful for their professionalism and providing us with a wonderful experience. The places we stayed in were unique providing us with an insight to local families and the cuisine that they enjoyed. It was just perfect. For me it was a dream full-filled to have walked the Lycian Way aided by an amazing company. Kerem was a joy to be with we so delighted to have met you and for you to share with us your love of all things nature. Thank you Deniz and Els for making this trip happen. Until the next time when we shall see each other. Khalid

Excellent mtn bike trip in Goreme region of Cappadocia! Emrullah was a fantastic guide. He had the mtn bikes ready to go in the morning, we rode single track trails through ancient cave dwellings lived in by early Christians, rode single track past Rose Valley and across the ledges on the Anatolian Plateau. The riding was awesome and Emrullah toured me through the ancient temples carved out inside the caves. He knew all the cool spots to see. Really amazing. I would highly recommend this company to take you on a bike tour!
