Abkhazia was once known as a prime holiday destination for the Soviet elite, including Stalin himself. Russian recognition in 2008 has secured the nations de-facto independence and is one of the post-Soviet "frozen conflict zones."


A breakaway, semi-desert territory making up the northern part of internationally recognized Somalia. Somaliland declared independence after the overthrow of Somali military dictator Siad Barre in 1991.


Turkmenistan, once a part of the Soviet Union, is one of the most unique countries in the world today. With a cult of personality and a secretive nature, it is truly an off the beaten path adventure. Its capital, Ashgabat, has been described as a cross between Pyongyang and Las Vegas. 

Iraqi Kurdistan


Largely operating as a de-facto state, with its own military, Iraq's 2005 Constitution recognises an autonomous Kurdistan region in the north of the country, run by the Kurdistan Regional Government.

South Ossetia

South Ossetia, internationally recognized as part of Georgia, is separated from Russia's North Ossetia region by a border in the Caucasus Mountains. Possibly the least visited out of all of the unrecognized countries in the region, it definitely makes for a unique destination.

North Caucasus

The North Caucasus is a region of the Caucasus in Southern Russia, bordering Georgia, Armenia & Azerbaijan to the south. Tours can include; Chechnya, Dagestan, North Ossetia & Ingushetia.


The unrecognised state of Transnistria - a narrow strip of land between the Dniester river and the Ukrainian border - broke away from Moldova after a brief war in 1992. It is what is known as a post-Soviet "frozen conflicts" and is a perfect destination for any Soviet enthusiast.
