Village and Valley Excursions:
Our village is one of the oldest in the entire region, with unmatched civic architecture and ample photography opportunities as it is simply an open air museum. On top of our village, we have wonderful vineries on the skirts of Erciyes attended by our villagers. Upon the wish of our guests, we would be happy to arrange for an excursion of the unique stone houses of our village and a sunset visit to the valley with vineries as a courtesy tour.
The walk takes about 2 hours and it is most pleasant in terms of the view, weather and scenary. The climb is only moderate for the first 15 minutes and afterwards it is straight on a dirt pathway with incredible vistas. If you choose to do a day tour of Akköy, we provide a picnic lunch and take you to where there are vineyards, a herd, ancient ruins, etc. in the vicinity of the village, as well.
We work with the best Balloon Companies in the region for the last 15 years, and they provide door-to-door pick up and return minibus service to the fantastic balloon ride excursion over the unique landscape of Cappadocia. We do the booking for you and offer you their best deals for the season.
