Kyrgyzstan, is often referred to as the Switzerland of Central Asia. A land of raging rivers, huge lakes, rolling high altitude grass-lands and endless snow capped peaks. Add to this friendly people, intriguing history, unique culture, great (and not so great) vodka and you have the perfect recipe for a fantastic and adventurous cycle tour.

Formally a Soviet state, Kyrgyzstan was one of the first of the Stan's to become an independent nation and travel along the sometimes turbulent road to find its own identity. We have researched and explored to find the best of what Kyrgyzstan has to offer and created our cycle tour to give you a real insight into the 'Land of the Kyrgyz'.

Cycle over high alpine mountain passes, across endless rolling grasslands, alongside raging rivers and tranquil lakes. Spend the night in traditional yurt camps, local home-stays and camping in wildflower filled valleys. Sample sensational regional food, locally brewed kumys and Russian beer. Join us on a cycle tour unlike any other.
