Turkey, France & Italy for August 2020!
Turkey, late August in Cappadocia. However overused the word, Cappadocia's landscape is quite simply breathtaking. Incredible fairy-towers, winding rock strewn valleys, a carved, honeycombed moonscape, changing to pink and ochre in the evening sun. Exploring by horse immerses you in the true sense. The towers stretch overhead, the canyons wind around you, its an amazing way to see the area. The only downside, in normal years, can be the number of visitors at hotels and better known vantage points - but not in 2020! Turkey has dealt with the Covid19 crisis extremely well, and by enforcing strict measure early on, its now quarantine free for UK travellers. There's not been much to shout about in 2020 but go and see this extraordinary place whilst its quiet and it'll make your 2020 something to really remember!
23rd to 30th August - from 1375 Euros (approx £1260)
