The best Kazakhstan tours take you from modern metropolitan centers to the wide open steppe, from the cities of today to the heritage of centuries. Cities like Almaty and Astana are unequaled in Central Asia, or anywhere else, while the many national parks hold treasures like rugged mountains and pristine lakes.
Start your tour of Kazakhstan in Almaty, the southern capital and bustling city full of cute cafes and museums. In the mountains above Almaty is Medeu, a famous skating rink open to professionals and beginners alike (or head deeper into the mountains for a vacation away from civilization). Not far away is Turkestan, a famous Sufi religious center and home to some of the most monumental ancient buildings in Kazakhstan. For those that love cities, Astana is perfect: stunning architecture, broad boulevards, and no shortage of events and exhibitions.
Make your best Kazakhstan tour even more unforgettable with excursions to unusual places. Baikonur makes for a great vacation for space lovers, since this launch facility is used for launching spaceships and satellites from all around the world. Or spend a night in a yurt, a traditional Kazakh home that has served nomads for centuries as they moved from pasture to pasture with their herds. For a true taste of nomadic culture, make sure to try some fresh kumis (made from fermented mare’s milk) or beshbarmak (ground meat boiled with noodles).
