Baikonur & Kazakhstan

Where can you explore space without ever leaving earth? In Kazakhstan, of course! In the middle of nowhere on the dusty Kazakh steppe is the settlement of Baikonur, the seat of the Soviet – now Russian – space program and the site where, if all goes to plan, we’ll witness a live rocket launch. Beginning in cosmopolitan Almaty, join us on this one-off expedition through Kazakhstan, from the shrunken Aral Sea to the ancient city of Turkistan and the Silk Road portals of Sayram and Shymkent. Ready for a rare, fascinating adventure through one of the least-explored corners of the earth? 3, 2, 1, liftoff.
