View all our Turkmenistan tours

From ancient structures to real dinosaur footprints, Turkmenistan is nothing short of a history buff’s paradise. Formerly known as Turkmenia, what’s left of this former autocratic empire are cities decorated with dozens of beautiful statues and monuments — like they were tailored-made for tourists who love to revel in the past. Marvel at the Darvaza Gas Crater. See the city treasures of Ashgabat. No matter where you go, there’s a piece of history in every step.
