Underwater forests. Futuristic skyscrapers. Cosmic discovery. Kazakhstan travel is perfect for curious adventurers.
This country straddles the breadth of Central Asia, from the peaks of the Altai in the east to the wind-scuffed shores of the Caspian Sea in the west. Travelling along dusty roads, modern highways and scenic railways, our Kazakhstan tours uncover the country’s Silk Road lore.
With its very own Wild West and an active spaceport, Kazakhstan feels like a Hollywood movie set. Its vast, open plains offer crystal-clear views of the stars – if you’re lucky you might even catch a glimpse of a rocket in the night-sky.
Things to do in Kazakhstan
Explore the newly named Nur-Sultan. Formerly Astana, Nur-Sultan’s immense oil wealth has attracted the attention of the world’s best architects. But in between the skyscrapers, there’s a burgeoning street-food and alternative music scene. In 2017 The Telegraph named Nur-Sultan ‘the world’s hottest new city destination’.
Baikonur. It’s a space station. In the desert. Rockets still take off from there. Are you not sold?
Stay in a Yurt in Mangistau. This Martian wilderness of rock, mountain and desert is more than worthy of a walkabout. We can organise a night in a yurt with panoramic views of the yawning valleys of Mangistau. Staying here is a highlight of Silk Road travel.

Antonia – one of our directors – first visited Kazakhstan in 2006 when she travelled from Thailand to England in a pink tuk-tuk. Don’t worry, she’s fine now – the point is that she was bowled over by the kindness of the Kazakh people and beauty of the steppe.
