There are few motorcycle tours in MotoDiscovery’s lineup that resonate with our guests with as much fun, romance, history, and culture than our rides through Turkey. From the minute we arrive in Istanbul our guests are swept away by the magic of this historical city. The city is filled with culture and history making it one of our favorite destinations. Ever since our first visit to the country years ago we knew this had to be a place we continued to come back to time and again. Turkey never disappoints.
The Turkey Fantasy Tour is an 11 day 1,900 mile expedition throughout some of the best parts of the country. We will see a variety of sights and sounds on this 11 day adventure. The ride is on paved roads throughout the 11 days we tour, however there is optional off-road excursions for those who want to get out and explore. This tour is great for couples looking to see Turkey’s ancient archeology and biblical history. Contrary to perception the Turkey Motorcycle Tour is very safe and a great destination for riders.
Exotica is the name of the game on this tour. We start the ride by heading to the World War 1 battlefield of Gallipolli. This battlefield plays a serious role in both New Zealand and Australian military history. The Gallipolli campaign was one of the greatest Ottoman victories during the war. We leave this battlefield to head towards another the historical site of Troy and the amazing city of Ephesus. This area dates back to 500 BC and is prominent in the teachings of the Bible. We will continue riding through the country enjoying the electric nightlife in Bodrum and see the tomb of the great Sufi spiritual leader Rumi in Konya.
One of the more memorable parts of this tour is the two night stay in Cappadocia. This is one of the most visually appealing areas in the region. The sprawl of soft volcanic stone pinnacles with carved habitats include even your hotel. Many guests take advantage of a hot air balloon ride during this break in touring. Take the opportunity to enjoy breathtaking views of this historically significant land. If you prefer to stay on land you can always dig deep into the history of this region and explore the underground city of Derinkuyu. These subterranean dwellings could hold as many as 25,000 people and their story is as magnificent as their dwellings.
There is so much to explore in Turkey we know that this will be the first of many Turkey motorcycle tours for you. It is impossible not to catch the Turkey bug and always be looking forward to your next visit.
