We will put on our mittens and snowshoes before starting our cross-country sleigh-ride through the beautiful mountains and valleys where the nomads roam. Hear the crunch of hooves on fresh fallen snow and the jingle of reigns from our winter sleigh and steam from horses’ nostrils will make for ideal holiday picture! We explore this idyllic winter-scape from our yurts in the snow and finish with holiday feast around hot stove and warm blankets before drifting off to dreams of white winter.
So pack your winter clothes and coal and carrot sticks for snowmen and sledding the winter trails on TREKKUP to Yurts in the Snow!
