Ryce Travel is a platform for adventurers who want to explore the world. Travelers who want to learn about other places. Travelers looking for authenticity and insane experiences. Every place is unique and every person is different. That’s why we love this world. Despite what the media claims, we live in a fantastic time and on a fantastic planet. It is even more accessible than ever and, above all, more travelable than ever. Above all, let’s enjoy that and expand our horizons.
Discover adventure travel and destinations
So there are the world’s (un)known destinations where tourism can make a substantial difference. Unfortunately, locals are sharing less and less of the revenue from tourism. Ryce Travel wants to break this spell. With us, you don’t go on vacation but actually undertake a journey. You get in touch with local culture, you get to breathtaking/unique places and your expenses end up with local people. We expressed this thought earlier as follows: “The world belongs to us but we also belong to the world. As long as you don’t know the world then you don’t know who you are”.
And that is exactly what we propagate: come discover the world, open yourself up to new experiences and share your own ideas to other people

By now I have been on many "Ryce trips" and how insane it is !!!
From Kyrgyzstan to Kosovo and from Georgia to Turkey. We went on horseback to the most remote peaks or the cat took us to areas where no other human could be seen. Around you, you only hear your own group of ski and snowboarders screaming with joy!
Had an unforgettable trip with Ryce Travel! Sequence of beautiful moments experienced in beautiful Kyrgyzstan! Peter and the rest of the staff took care of everything to perfection (including the lovely guest family). A real, "once in a lifetime", recommendation 🙂 .
Fantastic adventurous and very well taken care of winter sports trip had in Kirzigie.
Responsible freeride descents guided by experienced and knowledgeable guides.
Sleep in neat hotels and yurt camps.
Delicious dining out and almost everything all- inclusive.
The program is subject to change and will be adjusted each day according to snow/weather conditions. More than value for money!
I myself went to Kyrgyzstan with Ryce travel,
This was an amazing experience and I would definitely recommend this to any adventurous winter sports enthusiast!
