Mongolia Family Holidays

Our Mongolia family holidays have a magic ingredient – in that Mongolia itself provides the backdrop and what a remarkable backdrop it is.  Rejuvenate your spirit of adventure and spend quality time with your family on a family holiday you will always remember. Our Mongolia family holidays and experiences are private trips of discovery adapted to suit your budget, your travel dates, and your family – especially your children and what you would like them to experience in Mongolia.  

What suits you best on your Mongolia family holiday – adventure, education, exploration…? Whether you want to hike, camp, ger homestay, camel trek, horse ride or just relax in some hot springs – you would have your own private vehicle and your own dedicated EL trip assistant.

We know there will be some issues that you might be worried about – upset stomachs, boredom in the tour vehicle, mosquitoes, medical facilities, or what will happen if there is an emergency. These are all dealt with in our Pre Departure Guidlines but do get in touch if you have any concerns. 

For ideas and inspiration look at our blog posts below or throughout our website at the other itineraries we offer. Alternatively, be inspired by the reviews and just get in touch with Jess with your thoughts and ideas.

Our Mongolia family holidays are open to any family of any size and breakdown as long as there’s at least one child under the age of 18.  That means you can travel with a beloved gran, a favourite aunt, a couple of uncles or even a group of cousins. Children under 15 travel for free and those and from 15  to 18 years of age, travel for half price (excluding domestic flights and accommodation in Ulaanbaatar). There is no catch. We just believe that Mongolia provides an opportunity for kids like few other countries – perfect for exploration and adventure as well as education. 

Reviews Of Our Mongolia Family Holidays

The Blacklock Family

Cartwheels out on the Mongolian steppe during Mongolia family holidays
The landscapes we camped in, the culture we were able to experience, the food we tasted, the people we met was just beyond our expectations. Our children will have an imprint of Mongolia in their minds for a lifetime. It opened up their minds and eyes, so much so that they were really sad to leave.

The Kidron Family

Winter Mongolia family holiday
It remains a stand out adventure. And it was possible thanks to the special way you built EL and tailored our trip. It could easily be much less interesting and involving without your deep relations with the herders and families. So thank you for making it a real Mongolian exploration and not just a hover above the surface.

The Foss Family

Mongolia family tour
No need for a five star hotel, when you can be surrounded by so pleasant people and their great hospitality … the program you have put together for us was spot on and with new experiences and explorations to indulge in everyday. We have gotten much closer to people and their animals, than we had dreamed possible.

Family during one of our Mongolia family holidays
I just wanted to say a big thank you for the most amazing trip you organised for us. We couldn’t have asked for more to stay with such wonderful people and experience the life of a herder. I fell in love with Mongolia, as did Flo and I will not be able to stay away for long. The beauty of the landscape and the warmth of the people were incredible.

Exploring by bike - Sukhbaatar Square in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia
My kids’ new standard for a perfect holiday. This holiday was truly an exceptional experience and we are so very grateful for everything Eternal Landscapes did to make it happen. Returning to Mongolia is on the top of my kids’ wish list; plenty of exploring left to do, so we’ll be back!

We truly did experience the real Mongolia living with families for the two weeks. They opened their homes to us. Dog sledding, staying in a ger, eagle hunting, playing UNO. The stillness of the landscapes. It was a unique package – not mainstream – and a true taste of the heart of Mongolia.

On our Mongolia family holidays, you have your own private tour vehicle and are joined by one of our brilliant Mongolian teams of a male driver and a female trip assistant. Nearly all are parents themselves (and if not parents then they look after a younger brother or sister) and will understand your needs. Where possible, depending on your chosen experience, we will always endeavour to make sure you are hosted by Mongolian families with children of their own.

Are your kids fussy eaters? Don’t worry! Each of our tour vehicles has a small mobile kitchen and your EL team prepares a majority of the meals. This means we can offer more flexibility and cater to any fussy eaters. There will be some limitations in place because this is Mongolia but we can offer a surprising amount of flexibility.

Leaving Small Footprints In A Big Country

It might be that you have a child that is concerned about the impact of the climate emergency or has an interest in conservation or is aware of the impact of tourism on the natural environment. Why not show them our responsible travel page which includes our Climate Action Plan so they can see the work we are doing to mitigate our impact. If you would like them to be part of the planning process for your Mongolia family holiday (as an example, maybe by reading about the impact of climate change on Mongolia and would like to visit a tree-planting project) then we’re happy to accommodate this into how we work.
