Arriving in Almaty

Take one of Etihad Airways’ flights to Almaty and discover a city of fountains and lakes. This city will surprise you with its modern character and natural landscapes that are so beautiful that they take your breath away.

Plan Your Almaty Holiday

Travel to Almaty and discover a world that for a long time remained hidden from the European traveller. In the Tengri Umai Gallery you'll find an amazing selection of Soviet and local artists’ work, in the Central State Museum you will learn the history of Kazakhstan, and in the exclusive Arasan Baths you will be able to balance your mind and body through either Turkish, Finnish, or Russian methods.

If you purchase tickets to Almaty during the summer, you can explore the stunning Trans-Ili Alatau on horseback and refresh yourself in Alpine Lakes. If you take advantage of the off-peak season flight deals to Almaty, you can see these same areas under a beautiful blanket of snow and also enjoy winter sports. As this country has not yet been exposed to international tourism, it will be relatively easy to find cheap hotels in Almaty, except in the month of September, which is the busiest month of the year.
