Mongolia adventure holiday

Vast landscapes and seemingly endless space are the unforgettable hallmarks of this Mongolia adventure holiday, exploring this largely untamed and unchanged country. Spend a fascinating 23 days here, discovering the dramatic Gobi Desert, the central grasslands, and the lakeland regions of northern Mongolia, Lake Khovsgol. Many holidays to Mongolia include domestic flights, but these inevitably involve time spent queuing and boarding, and the risk of delayed flights. So instead, this holiday travels overland as the ultimate road trip. Exploring Mongolia in this unrushed way gives you the chance to see real life, without ever feeling as though you’re intruding. It’s a relaxed, unhurried way ... Read more >

Mongolia wilderness trekking holiday, Khangai Mountains

Trekking holidays in Mongolia tend to head west, to Altai Tavan Bogd or the Kharkhiraa circuit. Both areas are really beautiful, and we like to go here, too, but because everyone else is selling the Altai as being really remote and off the beaten track, it’s actually becoming a little bit busy. So we like to introduce visitors to the wild landscapes of the Khangai Mountains. This is our favourite trekking region. It’s one of the three main mountainous areas of Mongolia, along with the Altai and the Khentii, but as everyone else seems to pass it by it’s beautifully quiet. We have been running trekking holidays here for seven years and are yet so meet another person, apart from the odd ... Read more >

Wilderness biking holiday in Mongolia

The wild landscapes of Khovsgol Province form a dramatic background to this trip where we’ve chosen the bike routes to give you a real experience of the mountain forest steppe regions of northern Mongolia. Not just the landscapes but the way of life of the people you’ll meet en-route as well. The main bike route we’ve chosen is in an area little visited by western groups so each encounter with local people is potentially an authentic cultural exchange. Yes, we’ve included Khovsgol Nuur - considered a highlight in any guidebook. See it as your reward. But, this itinerary is not about ‘must see sights’. This is about real everyday Mongolia and its wild and beautiful landscapes including ... Read more >

Eastern Mongolia small group holiday

Mongolia’s vast open spaces and wilderness areas have long been sought after by travellers seeking a real escape, but this small group tour of Eastern Mongolia takes you even further, to some of the country’s lesser visited national parks and nature reserves. Over two weeks beginning and ending in the capital, Ulaanbaatar, you’ll truly feel like you’ve got away from it all entirely on an active adventure full of traditional culture and endless skies. Your accommodation will largely be a mix of wild camping in protected areas, one a breeding site for vultures and a natural habitat for wild Argali sheep, and gers stays with local families, one of the must-do experiences when in Mongolia. You ... Read more >

West Mongolia tour, 14 days

Mongolia’s landscapes are powerful and immense and nowhere in Mongolia do the landscapes get more powerful than in the western provinces of Bayan Ölgii, Uvs, and Zavkhan. What also makes this region so unique is that it is rare to find such a variety of biological diversity (ecosystems include semi-desert, interconnected shallow lakes, dunes, steppe grasslands, forests and mountains) in such proximity. This closeness of diversity is matched by few other places in the world. This region makes the ultimate road trip - travelling and camping through the vast weathered landscapes – made up of sunlight and shadow, rock, scrub, streams and fast flowing rivers. It is time spent exploring and ... Read more >
