Geological tours

While studying the formation and evolution of volcanoes and their products (tuff, lava, pumice and obsidian), you will discover how the Cappadocian landscape was formed. You will also understand the role of erosion (rain and win) shaping in the Cappadocian region as we see it today - the fairy chimneys and colourfull tuff layers.
