In a whirl

Ever wondered about the back story to the mystical whirling dervishes, who spin in a religious trance in the Turkish region of Cappadocia? Linked to the Sufi religion, these dancers twirl into a meditative state, focusing on God and imitating the planets moving around the sun as rhythmic music plays out. It’s a fascinating sight, and one that we had to include in our Istanbul and Cappadocia tour, which focuses on the highlights of two of our favourite parts of Turkey. As well as the whirling dervish ceremony, we’ve included a boat ride on the Bosphorus, time to explore Istanbul with a private guide, trips to the ancient cities and rock-cut Byzantine tombs of Cappadocia, and an unforgettable hot air balloon trip over the fairy chimneys of the Derwent Valley.
