Equitrekking

Turkey's Coast, Cappadocia & Istanbul

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Equitrekking host Darley Newman experiences life on Turkey's beautiful Mediterranean Coast - otherwise known as the Turquoise Rivera - by hiking the chilly waters of Saklikent Gorge and horseback riding through the abandoned Greek city of Kayakoy. Next, it's off to bustling Istanbul, where East meets West, to explore the Blue Mosque, Spice Market, Grand Bazaar, Topkapi Palace and the mighty Bosphorus. Finally, Darley returns to Cappadocia, to step back in time with the locals of these ancient villages. In Avanos, Darley focuses on local food, learning how to make pekmez (a special type of jelly) and cook testi kebab, a dish containing meat and vegetables cooked in a clay pot. Darley rides with locals through the fairy chimneys of Uzengi Valley, the Greek- influenced city of Mustafapasa, which dates back to Byzantine times and to a caravan stop on the Silk Road.
