Skiing in Kazakhstan


from £1,130 pp

(ex international flights)


6 days

With its towering gorges and snow capped peaks, Kazakhstan is one of the best skiing destinations in Central Asia. This 6 day winter tour begins in Almaty where you will have time to explore the highlights of the capital on a city tour. From there, you will travel through Ile-Alatau National Park until you reach the Medeu Gorge. Ride the cable car up into the mountains and you will find the Shymbylak ski resort. Its landscapes are pristine and you can spend several days exploring them by ski, snowboard or sleigh. Once you've had your fill, travel back down the mountain and return to the city for your return flight.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
