Young Pioneer Tours is excited to bring you our most exciting tour of 2024 and the most significant event in the region since 2018 – the World Nomad Games. Move over Paris Olympics and instead be one of the very few outsiders to participate in a unique international sporting event that combines adventure, exploration, and community engagement. This immersive experience brings together athletes and spectators worldwide to join in nomadic traditions passed down through generations.
The games feature many competitions, including traditional sports, horseback riding, archery, and other nomad-inspired activities. With exclusive access, we have secured spots in significant events like Berkutchior or “Eagle Hunting“, where we will witness a centuries-old tradition and marvel at the deeply rooted symbiotic relationship between humans and the majestic golden eagle, hawk and falcon.
After a few enriching, unique days of events, we will finish the tour by attending the visual spectacle of the closing games, which serve as a grand culmination of nomadic cultures worldwide. Here, we will engage ourselves in all things traditional – music, dance, and performances that showcase the diversity and richness of nomadic heritage.
So, if you’re looking for an opportunity to engage with local communities, experience traditional nomadic lifestyles, and participate in cultural events, creating a more authentic travel experience – look no further.
Our itinerary is designed to foster a well-curated experience, combining the excitement of the games with the exploration of nomadic cultures.
