Aspiring adrenaline junkies need look no further. Today on the Park Inn blog, we’ll explain why the beauty and mystery of Astana will awaken your inner adventurer.
When it comes to adventure tourism, Central Asia is the place to be. With its diverse terrain and extreme climate shifts, you can’t get much better than Kazakhstan for an active outdoor holiday. Check out our top recommendations in and around Astana, and book your excursion today!
Home to the Astana Pro Team, the road racing squad best known for the feats of 2009 teammate Lance Armstrong, the Kazakh capital is cyclist’s paradise. Bike-riding fiends who want to work up a sweat should take the 16.7 km journey through the Yesil District, while more relaxed riders should pedal around the Ethno-Memorial Complex, an easy 2.67 km trail.
Awaken your inner child
A recent redevelopment of Astana’s Left Bank is all about creating more green space. Explore. Central Park is home to waterworks, fun fair rides, and a viewing wheel for panoramic views of the city. Why not have some good old-fashioned fun riding the roller coaster?
Hit the trails
There’s no shortage of hiking trails in Astana, but before you lace up your hiking boots, start with a stroll along the Ishim River. Taking in the views is an ideal way to situate yourself within the city, and there’s plenty of amusement to be found along the way. Uncover your playful side. Pedal boats are available for waterfront adventure. Why not make a day of it and relax on the municipal beach?
Then get out of town. A few hours east, you’ll find a cluster of worthy trails at Bayanaul National Park. Surrounded by still lakes and black alder forests, you’ll be stunned by the country’s natural beauty. Get in touch with a guide if you’re inclined to check out the caves.
