Discover our Turkmenistan tours
Travel through the vast desert landscapes of Turkmenistan on our small group tours and see the very best that this mysterious country has to offer.
Join your local tour leader for a guided trip around Ashgabat, the capital of Turkmenistan, on our Wonders of the Silk Road tour. Gaze up at the towering Independence Monument and soak up the hustle and bustle of the city's lively markets. Travel to the ancient ruins of the Nissa Fortress to explore a maze of sand-coloured walls that once housed the mighty Parthian Empire, and wander amongst the crumbling remains of the city of Merv. It's hard to imagine the bygone grandeur of this lost city that was once the world's biggest metropolis and a verdant oasis for Silk Road travellers and traders crossing the desert.
Or for something a bit different, join our Five Stans Silk Road tour for a trip into Turkmenistan's Karakum Desert to see the blazing Darvaza Crater, its natural gases burning bright red and orange in the vast wilderness. Known as the 'Door to Hell,' feel the immense energy and heat radiating from the fiery gas pocket that has been burning for over 50 years.
