Discover the many marvels of Turkey from a unique perspective on a 12 Days women-only expedition

Turkey is often cited as the ultimate convergence of east and west – traditional spice bazaars and ornately adorned mosques thrown together with bustling cosmopolitan cities. On this women-only expedition, you’ll discover both the traditional and modern wonders of Turkey through the lives of the women who live here. Meet the women changing the face of the tourism industry. You’ll meet many extraordinary local women and experience what life is like through their eyes.

Tour highlights:

  • Meet a local mother and daughter in their home in Istanbul and try homemade borek. You’ll also learn about the traditionally female art of fortune-telling from coffee grounds. 
  • Enjoy a traditional meal in a Cappadocian cave home, cooked by a local woman who is changing the face of tourism in Turkey.
  • Wander through the Soganli Valley on a gentle hiking trip, taking in the arid surrounds and towering vistas, then learn how to make a popular Cappadocian souvenir, a ‘kitre.’ Local women have been making these dolls for many years now to earn a living.
  • Stay in a female owned and operated hotel in Istanbul, and visit a social enterprise which supports the economic empowerment of low-income women through handicrafts.

Join Intrepid on this incredible female-only adventure – an unforgettable expedition through Turkey.
