Undiscovered Uzbekistan


from £1,800 pp

(ex international flights)


14 days

Uzbekistan is a varied and interesting country - much more so than you might realise. If you have time we would really recommend this itinerary as a way to really explore off the beaten track. So we visit not only Bukhara, Samarkand and Khiva but also the Aral Sea, the Kyzyl Kum desert and a yurt camp near Aydarkul Lake. In the major cities we will ensure you're not just following the crowd - and in the evenings we will arrange home-cooked food. In Central Asia the best food is served at home.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
