Holidays to Mongolia
Mongolia is one of very few wilderness destinations that can be explored with ease, with a fascinating nomadic culture and heritage from the age of Genghis Khan when the Mongol empire was the largest the world has ever seen. Tours to Mongolia cover ever-changing landscapes of high mountains blanketed with mixed coniferous forests, crystal clear lakes and rivers, towering sand dunes and vast open plains broken only by the felt tents of nomadic herders.
We offer a great variety of holidays to Mongolia to feed many special interests, which are suitable for most ages. For those in search of adventure, Mongolia is a land of opportunity - imagine trekking on horseback whilst enjoying panoramic views of the steppe, a safari across the Gobi on motorbike, or stalking the legendary taimen with a fly rod on remote riverbanks. If travelling at a leisurely pace is more your thing, equally rewarding would be watching the national Naadam Festival, seeing wild horses roaming the National Parks, being invited into a nomadic family’s ger or marvelling at the colours of the sun setting over a sea of sand dunes. Holidays to Mongolia offer an unforgettable experience that will nourish the soul.
