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.

Especially for Families with young children 

For a family holiday Kyrgyzstan is a very special destination. And Ecotour has many years’ experience in organizing tours for families with children ensuring there are many interesting things for young visitors to see and do whilst they are here.

You will visit 4 yurt camps, situated in different landscapes. You will stay in the mountains and close to beautiful mountain lakes. These locations vary in altitude from 1,600 to 2,450m. For children there are all kind of activities - swimming, hiking, horse riding or learning to ride on the small Kyrgyz horses. In each yurt camp there are Kyrgyz children of all ages who will enjoy being with and playing with your children. New friendships will be made that will be remembered by your children, and maybe even you, far into the future.

In Bishkek you will stay at the Umai hotel, a guesthouse located near the centre of the city, and in the mountains you will stay in yurts, nomadic dwelling made of felt. In each yurt camp a local family will take care of your needs whilst you are there. Transportation will be by minibus and an interpreter (English or German) will accompany you during the whole trip.

If you are adventurous by nature, if you are interested in the way nomads live, and if you can forget luxury for a short while and enjoy the natural life, then this will be a holiday you will remember forever. Remember to bring your camera.
