Wildland Adventures takes you from the modern age into the past to discover authentic travel opportunities in Turkey on routes used by ancient silk and spice traders between Europe and the Far East. Turkey was a land coveted by many conquerors, each successive empire leaving its mark on the culture, folklore and way of life. Twenty-first century Turkey has become a modern, secular and western-oriented republic, best represented by the contemporary busting city of Istanbul. And, still the grandeur of Asia Minor predominates everywhere, especially outside the hustle and bustle of resort hotels. Wildland Adventures' founder Kurt Kutay, of Turkish heritage himself will share stories from their long trip in September 2012 walking through Istanbul, hot air ballooning in Cappadocia, visiting an Imam at a mosque near Konya, staying with a village family in the Taurus Mountains, and cruising in a traditional gulet along the Turquoise Coast to reach the ancient Roman city of Efes. He'll share lots of ideas for itineraries geared to small groups as well as private trips for individuals and families. Experience Turkey's living history surviving through its customs, gracious hospitality and exquisite cuisine. Discover why Turkey continues to rate among the best travel experiences by veteran travelers.
