Middle East

Overland Travel in the Middle East

Traveling to the Middle East in your overland vehicle or exploring the region on foot are particularly popular yet, but those who have been there will tell you both can be so rewarding.

Drive to Iran, heralded as being one of the most hospitable countries in the world and home to the culturally rich cities of Esfehan and Shiraz.

Jordan deserves a visit in your overland vehicle with vast deserts to camp and canyons for a 4×4 challenge. Or park your overland vehicle for a while and explore the country on foot, following the 650-km-long Jordan Trail.
