Active Mongolia group tours that explore the wilder side of nature – rural adventures for outdoor-lovers who savour local, rustic authentic experiences.

Our trips combine the classic elements of adventure travel but with added special touches and attention to detail that sets them apart from other ordinary outdoor activity tours. Our Mongolia adventure group tours have a degree of flexibility, to allow for individual preferences and interests to be catered for. We also only take small groups – between 6-8 people, depending on the trip
