We are Jop and Jitte, brother and sister of 30 and 36 years old from Oudewater. We used to go on ski holidays with our parents and for a number of years we have been going together annually. Usually to Austria but 3 years ago our eye fell on the Ryce Travel page via Facebook and we have been screwed up ever since;)
The trips of Ryce Travel cannot be compared to a ski trip to Austria and after that we did not want anything else. You will be taken to the most beautiful mountain peaks with snowmobiles, Pistenbully’s or horses. You ski on open plains, through forests, over rivers, you can not imagine how amazing it is. The powder snow shimmers like diamonds in the sun
In recent years we have been with Ryce to Kyrgyzstan, Kosovo, Macedonia, Georgia and Turkey. Actually, all journeys are impressive, each in its own way. What characterizes all countries is the hospitality of the locals. During every trip you will not only get to know the ski area, but also the local culture. You will stay in various homestays, do a city walk and taste local wines. A trip can even be finished in a Russian techno / karaoke spa facility.
What makes Ryce Travel even more special for us is their goal to help local entrepreneurs with the development of (winter) tourism. They also create employment with these trips and ensure that the revenues really reach the local population.
By booking a trip, we already make a (small) contribution. Last year we collected a van full of camping gear, winter clothing, snowboard boots (and much more). Peter then drove it to Kosovo
Because when a beautiful country receives you so hospitably and gives you an unforgettable experience, isn’t it the least you can do to help a little bit? We cannot wait for the ski season. Kazakhstan? Or maybe one of the new journey in Lebanon. We don’t know yet, but we are certain that we will go again!
