Considered a destination from a fairy tale by all travelers, Yemen is the Mecca for intrepid adventurers, the one destination that has always awed each and every visitor for its rawness and untouched culture combined with a jaw-dropping architecture and mesmerizing valleys.
Years of an unfortunate war, however, have isolated Yemen even more, making it a nearly impossible destination to reach.
Against the Compass is finally offering group expeditions to the Yemeni mainland, more specifically, to the eastern region of Hadramut, home to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Shibam, among many other wonders.
Yemen is the most legendary Arab country.
Join our upcoming expedition to discover it!
You don’t need to visit the embassy but we can arrange everything for you online.
You can fly to Seiyun from Cairo with Yemenia Airways. A round-trip ticket costs 870USD.
We can get a visa for all nationalities, including US citizens.
As of today, only one region of the Yemeni mainland can be visited: Hadramut.
