Turkey Itinerary help requested (13ish days)

Jump to last reply

I have been scouring this board and learning as much as I can, but would love some more advice from the experts out there! I am traveling with my best friend, we are both females and in our late 20s. We are avid hikers, love the outdoors and scenic nature, appreciate good food, and like to hit areas that are a little "off the beaten path" and a little less touristy.

Our tentative plan is as follows:

May 31 - Arrival in Istanbul
June 1 - Istanbul
June 2 - Istanbul
June 3 - Istanbul
June 4 - Fly to Cappadocia, rent car and stay in Gerome
June 5 - Gerome
June 6 - Gerome
June 7 - Fly to Antalya, rent car and stay in Cirali
June 8 - Kas
June 9 - Kas
June 10 - Fly to Istanbul (from Dalaman)
June 11 - Istanbul
June 12 - Departure

I would love to get some feedback on the itinerary, obviously it would be great to see Ephasus but I would hate to make the common mistake of squeezing too much into a trip.

The drive along the Mediterranean coast seems remarkable. Did I choose advisable towns to stay in? (Avoiding a night in Antalya)

Any recommended hikes in Cappadocia?

Thanks in advance! I realize that despite liking less touristy places I chose a tourist heavy route, I am hoping that the rental car in both Gerome and the coast will give us the freedom that we are looking for!
