Aral Sea

Contrasting tour to Uzbekistan: Adventure Jeep Tour to the Aral Sea

and Excursions to Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand

This tour combines the two most popular types of travelling in Uzbekistan: a guided tour of the country with excursions to the legendary historical cities of KhivaBukhara and Samarkand with grandiose architectural monuments and a jeep trip to the Aral Sea across the uninhabited and little-studied Ustyurt Plateau.

This one tour of Uzbekistan, highly logic and perfectly thought-out, will cover the most popular travel sites, the best places to visit and the country’s main tourist attractions. You will thus travel in two absolutely different dimensions – first in the world of unique nature and enormous areas with extraterrestrial landscapes away from civilization, and then in the urban world of human genius, centuries-old culture, oriental cuisine and authentic hospitality.

May your vacation and adventure holidays in Uzbekistan be interesting, eventful and diverse!
