Steppes can tailor-make your Turkish holiday to your exact requirements, be it a long weekend, a family adventure, a luxury holiday or venturing slightly off the beaten track.
With one foot in Europe and the other in Asia, the traditional and the modern manage to co-exist in this land of captivating contrasts. The 5000 mile coastline is lapped by four different seas and with fertile plains, dramatic mountain ranges and high steppes, each of the seven diverse regions enjoy their own climate, landscape and traditions.
Host to a long line of distinguished guests including silk route traders, Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar and Mongolian horsemen, it is clear that Turkey has played a major role in Eurasian history. From the minarets and domes of Istanbul to the ancient ciy of Ephesus on the Aegean Coast, the sculptured landscape of Cappadocia in Anatolia to the beautiful turquoise Mediterranean Coast, Turkey has it all.
With borders hugging Syria, Iran, Georgia and Armenia, Turkey can also be easily combined with an overland adventure onto any of these destinations, or you could end a trip to the Middle East on the beach in Turkey for some rest and relaxation.
