We can give our warm recommendations to anyone considering going to Kyrgyzstan in general, and with Ecotour in particular! We spent two weeks in some of Ecotour's yurt camps, and it was a highly memorable experience. Ecotour was very flexible and had arranged a programme that suited our wishes perfectly.

Special Offer

An active and adventurous family tour in Kyrgyzstan (Kyrgyzia)

This tour is suitable for families with children between 6 and 14 years old

Departure dates on request

An active and adventurous tour with a varied program. Kyrgyzstan is a very special, and still relatively unknown, destination for a family holiday. Ecotour has put together a special programme for families with children over 6 years of age. It is an active programme with much going-on - hiking in the high mountains, horse riding (or learning how to ride on the small Kyrgyz horses) and swimming in Lake Issyk Kul. At the different yurt camps where you will be staying there will be local children who will love to play with your children or take them off for a hike. 

In Bishkek you will stay in a small comfortable hotel not far from the centre of town and in the mountains you will sleep in a boz-uy (yurt) the felt house of the nomads. A local family, who also lives in the yurt camp, will take care of you and your children. Transportation will be by our own minibus and an English or German speaking interpreter will accompany you during the whole tour.

If you have children who love adventure, if you are interested in learning about and experiencing other cultures, if like to be active and are in reasonable physical condition, if you do not need luxury, then this is just the holiday for you and your family in a wonderful destination.
