Use an Uzbekistan extension tour to customize a vacation or business trip, either if you have a couple extra days or if you want to visit some of the less-known sites of Uzbekistan, away from the main cities. If you want to get to know Uzbekistan deeper than just visiting Samarkand, Bukhara, and Khiva, book an extension trip to less-frequented destinations, or explore your own interests with trips to natural sights, museums, archaeological sites, and more.

Some of our favorite extension tours head out to the mountains. It takes only two hours to reach the mountains just outside Tashkent, so an ideal extension trip is to the mountains just outside the capital. Other popular destinations include the Kyzylkum Desert, Aydarkul Lake, and the Aral Sea. These trips introduce you to the everyday life of people living in the harsh conditions of the desert, and take you to the ship graveyard in Muynak, the necropolis of Mizdak-khan, and the Savitsky Museum, home to an amazing collection of avant-garde Russian art. Aydarkul Lake will make you feel like a nomad as you spend a night out under the stars.
