DATES


2020 DATES (Spring) 14th March to 24th March 2020 (Kazakh Nauryz Festival) 20th to 30th March 2020 (Kazakh Nauryz Festival) 2020 Dates (late Summer / Autumn)* 6th to 16th Sept 2020 (incl Local Eagle Festival /or local horse race event) 11th Sept to 21st Sept 2020 (incl Local Eagle Festival / or local horse race event) 25th Sept to 5th Oct 2020 (Olgii Eagle Festival) 2nd to 12th Oct 2020 (Olgii Eagle Festival) 2020 DATES (late Autumn /early winter - for the hardy! This falconing season proper though) 12th October to 22nd October 22nd October to 1st November 1st November to 21st November 21st November to 1st december 1st December to 11th December * Please note with us you uniquely get the real authentic nomad culture experience & riding and falconing for 7 days. Our speciality is giving an authentic riding and immersion into Altai nomad culture away from tourism. The Eagle festivals have been become very camera and tourist orientated with sometimes very little horse power there. So a one day / afternoon visit is sufficient in our opinion (where we set up special catering tent to host guests). Also, a private group can opt out altogether and have an extra day riding if preferred. All our rides are 10 night/ 11 days - all inclusive - unless tailormade otherwise.
