What awaits you

You may be asking yourself: where exactly is Kyrgyzstan and why should I travel there? We would put it this way: It's probably one of the most beautiful places in the world when it comes to pristine nature, clear mountain lakes and endless steppes with grazing horses. Here's what you can expect: travel off the beaten track, meet locals, learn about nomadic traditions, taste delicious Kyrgyz food, and be surrounded by untouched, beautiful nature. Let us take you on an unforgettable Kyrgyzstan winter adventure to explore a country far from the ordinary.

Important information

How are you doing with travel in times of Corona?

You can easily book all our trips for only 1 € deposit and cancel or change your booking free of charge up to 4 weeks before departure. If the trip can not take place due to Covid, you can rebook as a vaccinated person free of charge on another date or another trip or get your money back. Feel free to check out our page Covid safe travel where we have collected some FAQ around the topic.

Do you offer trip cancellation insurance?

Should you not be able to fly for health reasons, there is a Travel cancellation insurancee.g. from HanseMerkur, which (also) covers a covid infection before the start of the trip.

Can I arrive earlier or leave later?

You can individually plan a few days in advance or add a few days to all our trips, as it suits you best. Of course, we are also happy to give you tips for accommodation!

With whom do I share a double room?

By default, you will share a double room with a person of the same sex, but you are also welcome to book a single room.

What does your collaboration with local partners look like in concrete terms?

For us, supporting locals means working only with local guides, staying in local, family-run hotels, and eating at local restaurants. We often have a social/environmental cause that we incorporate into our trips (from volunteering at a wildlife rescue center in Namibia to the support of Buddhist monks in Nepal in their daily work or visiting a school in a Soviet ghost town in Kyrgyzstan and bringing soccer balls, books, pens, etc.).

General information

Please note that the itinerary, activities and hotels may be subject to change. These changes may occur without notice due to availability, inclement weather, seasonal changes or other circumstances beyond our control. We will always do our best to ensure that this has little or no impact on your experience.

How much should you tip the guide?

The amount of tip is not fixed. However, we would recommend a tip between 30 and 50€ per person for the entire trip (this also depends on the size of the group). If there is a driver for the day in addition to your guide, it would be nice if he also receives between 15 and 25€ per person for the entire trip.
