Desartica Adventures is the specialized tour operator that is writing the history of adventure journeys in the desert.

In addition to the destinations to the Sahara Desert and the Middle East, we also organize journeys to Iceland, Greece, Sardinia, Corsica, Turkey and South America…

It doesn’t care the destination, what distinguishes our expeditions is always the adventure in extreme security, the global assistance, often unknown itineraries which are far from the mass tourism, natural landscapes, different cultures and of course a lot of fun in driving on “legendary” tracks.

Our tours can be demanding, but our aim is always to reach fascinating places.

If it is not differently planned in the program, our journeys are suitable for both expert drivers, who owns prepared vehicles, and also for neophyte, who owns strictly stock vehicles.

It is important that the vehicles are in a good general state, in service and with appropriate tires.

During the journey we always want to give you advice on trims and steering and before the departure our staff is ready to give all necessary information about the trim of the vehicle and the luggage.

The itineraries are always planned and all GPS points are given in advance in order to live the journey as main characters.

We have 4x4 trucks set up to give assistance and the catering, and that enables us to support also clubs, associations or groups of friends.

We can plan dedicated itineraries according to your preferences, from tourism/sand to the most specialized 100% dunes.

We can also organize specific driving courses for this kind of journeys.


The 4x4 family formula has been thought for people who want to travel off-road without being too demanding.

This kind of journeys are in fact carried out on tested itineraries to prevent a hard strain of the vehicle and therefore they are particularly suitable for SUV.

This “soft” concept of off-road is ideal to take full advantage of your 4x4 characteristics without taking it to the limit and benefit from the steering of your vehicle and its performances in total security.

Moreover, it is a good chance to approach to an off-road journey.

Certainly, the style of the journey by Desartica is always the same, with permanent staff all the tour long and ready to help you in case of any unforeseen.

From a touristic point of view, the family 4x4 journeys always follow the mark of Desartica, characterized by destinations – to Italy or international – which are located in beautiful landscapes, that are historically and culturally important and full of adventure that lets us follow alternative routes, far from the mass tourism.

The “easy” steering and the beauty of the places make the family 4x4 journeys suitable for everybody, especially for who wants to travel with his family and therefore needs a right mix of adventure, off-road and relax.


4x4 Italy
is a journey proposal dedicated to off-roading and to people who don’t want to give up practicing during the year or who simply want to see our “belpaese” from different points of view.

The job or the family commitments don’t always allow to leave to far destinations and therefore Desartica Adventures organizes tours in Italy, a country that luckily preserves gorgeous naturalistic landscapes.

The destination changes, but the spirit and the professionalism still remain distinctive characteristics of our journeys: the participants are always followed and assisted by our staff all journey long.

The tour will be presented by a detailed program which includes all the touristic and technical indications.

Even if few kilometers far from home, off-road is always a serious thing for us, to practice also in a demanding way, but with all the technical assistance possible.

As already told, the destinations are always fascinating places from a panoramic point of view, but are also important from a cultural, historical and gastronomical point of view, since located in Italy.

The overnight stays are adventurous but comfortable at the same time: we’ll sleep on camps, shelters at heights or in hotels and typical agritourism… possible bivouac won’t miss.

The journeys in Italy will be unforgettable both from a off-roading point of view and touristic one. Also for this kind of journey, who doesn’t own a vehicle could travel on board of the organization vehicles or rent one.

As regarding international destinations, also in Italy is offered by Desartica assistance to clubs, associations or groups of friend to plan personalized tours or driving courses.

In other words, also at home a global off-road.

For who doesn’t have too much time, there’s the formula “fly&drive” to send your vehicle to destination.

And if you don’t own one, there’s the possibility to rent it or to enjoy the journey on board of an organization vehicle.
