We have decided on the future of our travel company in Dagestan.
Here are the good and bad news for you:
After August 2023, (that’s next year) we will stop offering our unique self-drive tours to explore Dagestan in our UAZ 4×4 campers.
But until then we will continue working as usual, all Adventure and Comfort tours booked for 2022 and 2023 will take place as planned.
There are still about 20 Dagestan trips bookable before we leave the country, you can find an overview of all free slots above and in the calendar on our website.
We will just switch the country, and starting 2024 we are going offer our unique self-drive tours in Armenia.
The tours themselves will stay very much the same, you will be travelling the Caucasus by UAZ 4×4 Camper, enjoy the best spots in untouched nature and get to know this region and its wonderful people in a very personal way. Of course we will also continue to offer Comfort Tours for those who prefere to stay in guesthouses and accomodations.
You are very much invited to join our next virtual Dagestan Tour, where we take you on a wonderful journey to show you the best places between the Caspian Sea and Caucasus. We will introduce you to the rich history of this region, you meet the wonderful people living here and check out the local food. This will also be a great opportunity to ask any questions you might have about our tours and about travelling to Russia.
Our online tour takes about 1h, is free to join and will start on May 5th 2022 at 19:00 UK time (20:00 CET time)

All the best from Dagestan,
