Venture through a cultural, political and geological mosaic in Central Asia

The largest landlocked nation on earth, Kazakhstan is massive (all of Western Europe could shoehorn into it) and massively varied. Our journeys explore its diverse inhabitants (numbering more than 130 nationalities, including Russians, Uzbeks, Uighurs and the formerly nomadic Kazakhs) and landscapes, which range from classic Central Asian steppes to the glaciated, towering Tien Shan peaks. And we enjoy the positive, forward-looking people and festive rooftop bars of Almaty, the cultural capital.
