5 AMAZING NOMADS TOURS

Its not a short look at touristy camps round the city but a lovely journey to the heart of the nature and nomads. We hike through nice valleys, amazing canyons, sometimes reach high summits and finally spend a memorable night with nomads in their tents under shiny stars. As our nomads move between summer place and winter place, depending on your time we go to different places. Usually from May to november they are in summer place and from november to May they are in winter place.
