Mongolia Tailor Made Tours

Our Mongolia tailor-made tours are created to be private journeys of discovery – individual, personal and unique to you.

We bring our country-wide research, our knowledge and our original and refreshing ideas and create a private, tailor-made Mongolia experience for you. Adapt, tweak, add a dash, customise, start from scratch, I had an idea …

Yes, on our Mongolia tailor-made tours we can provide the ‘highlights’ but the ideas below will take you a more under the surface. Rather than tick-list travel, this is slow travel with a focus on making connections with people, places and the culture. Because of the way we work no two trips are ever the same. Rather than a standard itinerary, you’ll get an original insider experience.

For ideas and inspiration below are a few examples. Alternatively, look throughout our website at the other itineraries we offer.  You can either book one of the following or we can adapt to your budget, dates and/or preferred style of accommodation.

  • For those looking to book 2 or 3 shorter experiences, or to extend one of our small group experiences with a shorter private trip, please use the pricing (in each PDF) as a guide only. Discounts will apply.

For those that want to, we can swap the accommodation to suit you (whatever accommodation options you finally choose,  our support payment still goes to the local families we work in long-term local community partnership with in the area you are visiting).

One Day Experiences

Mongolia One Day Tours
One day? What can you hope to experience in just one day in Mongolia – a country the size of western Europe? Ditch the guidebook and the recommended highlights and come along and join us. All our Mongolia one-day trips are private, flexible and fluid and designed to get you just that little bit closer to real daily life and give you a more local perspective.

Although the main valley of Gorkhi-Terelj is developed, don’t dismiss the area.

Khustain Explorer - 2 days - Full-day Horse Trek or Hiking - Wildlife Observation - Staying With Batchuluun family - Free Ulaanbaatar city walking tour

Khustain Nuruu National Park is one of Mongolia’s conservation success stories. Staying with the Batchuluun herding family gives you the perfect base to get off the beaten track on a horse or foot trek. This is how we prefer to explore the park – this slower pace of exploration helps to provide you with a better understanding of the biodiversity of Khustain – its people, landscapes and wildlife.

Mongolia’s middle Gobi is frequently overlooked by travellers flying down to the more famous (and busier) southern Gobi.
