The concept of ‘overland travel’ is a relatively new idea that offers people budget group tours to exotic destinations all over the world. Normally on any overland tour you will be on a custom-built overland expedition vehicle with a group of people of mixed ages, sexes and nationalities. This is what makes overland travel fun!
On our Madventure overland trips we have vehicles that can carry up to 40 people although most of our trips run with around 25. Our trucks have been purpose-built to offer comfort but also have the ability to tackle the tough terrain we encounter when travelling to remote parts of the world.
Our most popular overland tours are the Silk Road Istanbul to Beijing expedition, our Central Asia ‘Stans’ Tour and also our Iceland Overland Adventure Trip.
