About Turkey

Turkey, straddling Eurasia, offers visitors a different style of travel. Marvel at the famous Blue Mosque in historic Istanbul and see famed Hagia Sophia, once the seat of Orthodox Christianity. Ephesus, on Turkey’s Aegean Coast, is one of the world’s largest and best preserved ancient Greek cities. Nearby Pamukkale boasts world famous thermal pools with stunning turquoise waters. Sore over Cappadocia in a hot air balloon to admire landscapes seemingly drawn from the lunar surface. Or venture aloft as you paraglide off the Mediterranean Coast near Fethiye. For north to south, east to west, Turkey is a magnificent country.

Hot Air Balloon
Cappadocia, along with Kenya and South Africa, is one of the most popular places in the world for hot air ballooning. Visitors can get a breathtaking, panoramic bird's-eye view of Cappadocia while soaring in a hot air balloon. Cappadocia has a unique and bizarre terrain due to the cooled lava from volcanic eruptions, which was then shaped by natural wind erosion. The curving valleys, rolling mountains, winding rivers and scattered market towns can all be enjoyed from the air.

Cappadocia
Turkey has long been a global crossroads. Straddling Europe and Asia, its lands have seen the rise and fall of vast empires including the Greek, Persian, Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman. This long history combines with pristine natural beauty. Black Sea resorts dot Turkey’s northern coast. Grand cathedrals and mosques line the Bosporus Straits in Istanbul. Picturesque islands are scattered in the Aegean Sea. And ancient ruins coexist with modern luxury along the Mediterranean coast. It is a land for travelers seeking something exotic yet familiar. In this and so many other ways, Turkey is the ideal blend.

On April 15, 2019, the world was stunned to learn fire had ravaged Notre-Dame Cathedral in the heart of Paris. In a matter of hours, centuries of history that had survived revolution, two world wars, and natural disasters was swept from existence. It is with heavy heart we mourn the loss of these cultural treasures.
