The Taurus Mountain Ride
The Taurus Mountain ride is a 5 or 6-day ride with 6-8 hours per day on horseback covering the vast terrain between Cappadocia and the Taurus Mountains near the coast at Antalya, then returning to Goreme – all by horse! Overnights are in tents along the way and all provisions are brought on horseback with us. The terrain changes from the unique rock formations around Cappadocia to the rocky, remote areas of the Taurus Mountain frontier, to the lush Mediterranean coastline…riding through small villages and meeting many interesting local characters along the route. This ride is only available in mid-summer as the mountain areas are covered in snow the rest of the year. This is a “rugged ride” and suitable for experienced riders and those comfortable with riding long days, sleeping in tents and who enjoy off-the-beaten-path adventures!
