Discover Untouched Nature

This is the largest landlocked country in the world. While a huge portion of it consists of flatlands called the steppe, it also boasts mountains, lakes and great cafe culture if you know where to look. It's the ultimate destination for off the beaten track travel. 

So many couldn't point out  Kazakhstan on a map, but it's full of some of the best nature and warmest hospitality. Find yourself hiking, swimming and watching the national ballet all in the same day. It's truly a hidden gem. ​Due to the pandemic, we are operating day tours until further notice.If you have a multi-day itinerary in mind feel free to get in touch and we will see what we can do!

Kazakhstan's local currency is the Kazakh Tenge. The best way to carry your money is in debit cards, withdrawing cash in local currencies from ATM machines. ATMs are found throughout Kazakhstan and will generally accept cards on the Visa and Mastercard networks. It is a great idea to travel with both a Visa and Mastercard if at all possible in case of loss or problems with one card, you will have a back up. If you are bringing Pounds, Euro,US Dollars, please make sure that the notes are new and in good condition. Notes older than 2003, or with any tears or blemishes may not be accepted.
