Rail Tours in Kazakhstan
Witness the majesty of Kazakhstan
Retrace 'The Silk Road' - one of the most important trading routes of ancient civilisation, travelling by luxury train, the Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express, from Russia to China. On a rail holiday in Kazakhstan you will get the rare opportunity to visit Kazakhstan along the way. Being the ninth largest country in the world, Kazakhstan has an area greater than the whole of Western Europe, with beautiful landscapes ranging from deserts and grasslands to spectacular mountain ranges. It once formed an important part of the ancient Silk Road trading route on which merchants used to travel carrying silk, spices and perfumes to and from China. Now, this Russian-developed city has become far more economically advanced than its neighbouring countries due to its oil and gas reserves, and is rapidly becoming a modernised Eurasian nation. On our tours of Kazakhstan by rail you can enjoy a contrast between city sightseeing in Almaty and experiencing traditional life in the Tien Shen Mountains.
