Description and Information

A Modern Day Trek in the Footsteps of Marco Polo

The Silk Road Adventure was an amazing 53-day journey spanning 12,000 kilometers from Istanbul, Turkey to Xian, China. GlobeRiders Producer Sterling Noren captured over 80 hours of HD (High-Definition) video of Helge and the tour's Riders as they followed the roads and tracks of the ancient traders and their caravans.

The Silk Road Adventure embarked from Istanbul, Turkey, made its way across Turkey into Georgia, then Azerbaijan. In Baku, the group boarded a freight tanker ferry for the voyage across the Caspian Sea, making landfall in Turkmenistan. Continuing eastward, the riders made their way through Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan, finally entering northwestern China via the Organs pass, and from there, they completed the ride across the vast expanses of the Gobi to Xi an, city of the Terra Cotta Warriors, and terminus of the Silk Road.

Bonus still image sideshows for each episode are included (four total).

Take a Virtual Tour via our Live!Journal

If the DVD isn't enough, your can rewind to 2005 and take a virtual tour of the Silk Road with Helge and the Riders who were on that adventure.  We believe GlobeRiders is unique among tour operators in that we publish a web-based travelog, which we call The Live!Journal, while each of our tours or expeditions is underway.  The Live!Journal is composed of stories and photos from the riders, published "live" from the field.  To visit the Silk Road Adventure 2005 Live!Journal, please click here.
