Travel overland and follow the Silk Road in Central Asia

Stretching from the Caspian Sea to the western border of China, Central Asia is a blank space on the map for many people. But travel to this lesser-visited region and you’ll discover cities, scenery and sights like nowhere else on Earth. Visit the Silk Road cities of Uzbekistan and marvel at the strange capital of Ashgabat in Turkmenistan. Go trekking in Tajikistan and stay in a traditional yurt in Kyrgyzstan. Departing in 2020, these Overland Adventures take in the highlights of Central Asia alongside Turkey, China and the Caucasus nations of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia.

What is overlanding?
Overland Adventures

Travelling aboard large, purpose-built trucks, with all camping and cooking equipment onboard, overlanding is all about the journey and not just the destination. Although you'll be visiting the must-see highlights of each country you travel through, they’re far from just sightseeing tours with plenty of activities to get involved in along the way. There's a range of accommodation, varying from camping and homestays to basic hotels and even yurts, as well as plenty of group participation when it comes to cooking meals. Find out all about this style of travel with our guide to Overlanding in Central Asia.
