Mongolia adventure holiday with festival option

Vast landscapes and seemingly endless space are the unforgettable hallmarks of this Mongolia adventure holiday, that celebrates the diversity of Mongolia's landscapes as you explore this largely untamed 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 combined with a camel trek, wild camping, day hikes and living alongside Mongolia’s herders. Join our Untamed ...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 >

Mongolia cultural tour, Nomads of Khangai Mountains

Mongolia is built from three ecological regions: desert, mountain and steppe. This cultural holiday explores the mountain and forest steppes of the Khangai, where the shape of the land shapes Mongolians’ way of life. You’ll spend six days on a wilderness horse trek steered by a Mongolia guide from a local herding family.

Mongolia tour, hunting with Eagles

Join the Kazakh eagle hunters of Western Mongolia to experience their traditional way of life and understand why and how they hunt with eagles. The imposing Altai Mountains dominate the west of the country and form the spectacular physical and cultural backdrop to this 9-day winter tailor-made tour. Why a winter experience? The eagle hunters only hunt in the winter months (early November through to February) as they hunt specifically for the winter coat of the prey.

Mongolia winter holiday

This Mongolia winter holiday focuses on the rural way of life for Mongolians in the central heartland – whether it’s a nomadic family that moves 6-8 times a year or a retired couple with just a small number of livestock. Because while Mongolia is firmly in the 21st century, it doesn’t mean that the traditional rural way of life is dying out; it just means that it’s adapting and progressing. Winter in Mongolia is very cold – but that’s what makes Mongolia and its landscapes extraordinary at this time of year. You’ll spend nights in a ger, warming yourself by the stove, and the star-spangled night skies make up for the challenge of the temperatures. Traditional felt boots, handmade goatskin ...Read more >
