Spend 12 exhilarating days exploring Altai, the land of beautiful untouched nature, archeological mysteries and keeping traditions!
Our adventure holidays’ itinerary combines enjoying fascinating sceneries and observing wildlife, off-road driving and hiking, meeting local people and learning their traditions. It will be also a kind of physical challenge – some of the fantastic viewing points are only reachable on foot. Almost every day of our adventure tour we will explore a new location and you will see how diverse Altai nature is – alpine peaks with eternal snow and broad steppes, dense forests and green valleys, narrow rocky canyons and high-mountain lakes.
Watch wild animals and birds – marmots, ground-squirrels, wild sheep and goats, foxes, eagles, vultures, kites, cranes and many other species. Altai is a home to rare and threatened animals. Under the guidance of a National park ranger, we will have a real adventure – explore the habitat of snow leopard and search for his markings on the trees and rocks.
Become an observer of thousands of years of Altai history, exploring ancient petroglyphs, stelas and kurgans. Due to low utilization of the lands, they are saved almost in their original state. Many of them are still an enigma for scientists, especially which belong to a mystery civilization of Siberian Scythians (5-2 century BC).
Get to know modern nomads’ way of living. We will communicate a lot with local people in order to understand their traditions and customs.
