The Slow Cyclist in Turkey

Whereas Turkey's Mediterranean coastline sees millions of tourists each year, its varied, culturally rich and often stunningly beautiful interior is far less known. For those seeking a few days of distance from modernity and a genuine connection to people and place, the Taurus Mountains, stretching most of the way across southern Turkey, are ideal.

On our cycling and walking journey you will cross the Anatolian plateau, a deserted landscape punctuated only with remote mountain villages, and the distant camps of Yoruk nomads. You will visit ancient lost cities and sites culminating in a visit to Aspendos, the world’s best preserved ancient theatre.

The Slow Cyclist's luxury tented camp in the Taurus Mountains

There are two ways to travel with us in Turkey. You can either travel on a set-date Scheduled Journey or put together your own private party.


Scheduled Journeys

A wonderful opportunity to explore a fascinating part of the world, to meet like-minded travellers and make new friends in a group of Slow Cyclists assembled by us.


Private Journeys

Many of our guests travel with friends and family, often in private groups of 4-12 people. Doing so means ultimate flexibility in the way you spend your time.
