Tour Overview


What an amazing trip! This itinerary combines our unique Iraqi Kurdistan program with our hugely popular existing itinerary for the Caucasus - Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia. This expedition has enormous appeal to those who want to get well off the beaten path. There is certainly a "first-on-your-block" prestige that goes along with a visit to northern Iraq, a destination that National Geographic listed among the world's top 10 adventures for 2011.

The Caucasus is a fascinatingly diverse, scenically stunning, and culturally rich region, and as well welcoming and friendly without a hint of mass tourism. We expect this to be one of our more popular selections this year and space will fill up quickly. Join us!

Seemed to know almost all the answers, no matter what the topic. I enjoyed/appreciated the fact that both Reb s father and Karwan s father had been freedom fighters, so they had many insights and anecdotes about recent turbulent history
