Its main fields of activities include various expeditions in Kazakhstan and abroad, including bicycle ones ("Bronze Ring of Sary-Arka" and "To the Center of Kazakh Land" were among the most important of them), development of ecotourism ( Kyzylarai and Ulytau mountain oases mainly) and bicycle infrastructure in Central Kazakhstan, publishing in tourism and travels ("Discovery Kazakhstan" and "Discovery Tajikistan" guide-books).


The "Bronze Ring of Sary-Arka" bicycle expedition (2008) had its route (about 1000 km) through the most interesting natural and archaeological sights of Central Kazakhstan, including monuments of the Bronze Age Begazy-Dandybai culture.
