Most people who visit Cappadocia Turkey choose to float above the jagged landscape, however when the opportunity arose to drive through the landscape on quad bikes I eagerly raised my hand and said “YES!”. Hitchhiker Tour company rents vehicles with wheels in Cappadocia – specifically in the little tourist town of Goreme. They run tours throughout the day, but in the summer I would suggest to take the early morning tour or late afternoon so as to not be caught in the escalating temperatures.

We arrived at 8:30 AM learned the simple basics of how to work the quad bike (throttle and brake) and in a deep guttural roar we were off following our guide leading the way through town and eventually onto a dirt path. I was eager to let loose and go fast but I tried to contain myself as I followed behind our wise guide who was easing us into the off-roading.

Gradually the trail got bumpier and dustier and soon I was pushing the throttle to the max, squinting my eyes, and bracing myself for the next dips and bumps. As we stopped at various lookout points my whole body tingled as I got off the quad bike to take photos. I have to admit – I loved doing the hot air balloons – but this quad biking was a whole different kind of excitement. Plus – to see the volcanic formed rocks from the ground provided a whole new perspective of awe. I felt more grounded and in touch with what I was looking at.
