There’s no prescribed routes. Just riding. As it should be. Out on the Mongolian steppe.
The horse is a symbol of strength of spirit, freedom and independence in Mongolia. And, in a country of great horse men and women what could be a better way of exploring wild Mongolia than on horse back?
We mainly offer our horse treks as a tailor made experience - adapted to suit your travel dates and preferred length of trip. However, we do offer one or two small group experiences throughout the year. If you do choose a small group trip, our group sizes are small - a maximum of six. This means we can offer plenty of flexibility. If there’s a mixture of abilities, we’ll divide the group into two for the riding.
We also try to match your horse to your riding ability - for those that want to gallop like the wind or those that are less experienced and prefer a more gentle pace.
Small Group - Orkhon Trails Horse Trek - 9 days - Saturday to Sunday - May to September
The Orkhon River Valley is one of Mongolia’s four World Heritage Sites. It’s a cultural WHS and represents the evolution of nomadic pastoral traditions in Mongolia. Usually included in general tour itineraries, it is a stunning area to explore in its own right - especially if you’re prepared to go a little more off the beaten trail.
What could be abetter way to explore this region of nomadic traditions and culture than on a horse trek? Our Orkhon trek will be led by herders that make their home in the region. You’ll be also be hosted by local herders as well as enjoying a little wilderness camping.
Khovsgol is justifiably a highlight of Mongolia. But there is so much more to it then just the lake.
Some companies say it is too commercialised or too ‘touristy’. Well. We’ll show you a different side. A more local and human side to this remarkable area.
Biologists use the word ecotone for places where different habitats meet - Khovsgol is an ecotone on a very large scale. On this trip you’ll get to experience all those different aspects of this region - including a 4-day horse trek in the Khoridol Saridag Mountains and a 5-day horse trek into the remote
taiga - the home of the Tsaatan - Mongolia’s reindeer herders. Both treks will be led by herders that make their home in the region. You’ll be also be hosted by local herders as well as enjoying a little wilderness camping.
