Travel with Alexandra to the former Russian Empire; riding horses in Kyrgyzstan, a ‘Tolstoy tour’ to Moscow and Yasnaya Polyana, and a cultural tour of Moscow and St Petersburg
Join Alexandra for the adventure of a lifetime, riding horses in the magnificent Tien Shan Mountains, home to the nomadic Kyrgyz people and some of the most beautiful and untouched scenery in the world. Or choose between a tour of ’Tolstoy’s Russia’, taking in the writer’s homes in Moscow and Tula Province, and a tour of Moscow and St Petersburg, carefully curated to include all the historical and cultural highlights of these romantic cities.
A unique experience
A relative of Leo Tolstoy and fluent Russian speaker, with decades of experience of living and travelling (much of it by horse!) all over the former Russian Empire, Alexandra can offer unrivalled access to this historically, culturally and geographically fascinating region. Scheduled trips are run in conjunction with Ampersand Travel to the different destinations throughout the year, but bespoke trips can also be commissioned, including family riding trips to Sary Chelek, Kyrgyzstan.
Due to Covid-19 all trips for 2020 have been delayed to 2021. The 2021 trip dates are gradually being released as flight schedules become available.
“There is no better holiday in our eyes; time spent together doing something so invigorating and disconnected from the stresses of the modern world is invaluable… Life is complicated but these slices of simplicity and proximity to nature are restoration for the soul, and we look forward to sharing our precious experiences with others”
