Mongolia

For explorers who delight in unique cultures, possess a sense of humor, flexibility, and a true spirit of adventure, a Mongolia tour is just the ticket. The “Land of Blue Sky” is a stunning, wide-open landscape where wild horses thunder across grassy steppes, native people endure as nomadic herdsmen, and the fossilized bones of dinosaurs await discovery in hidden canyons. Depending on the time of year, guests may even get to experience the Naadam Festival, held both in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar, and further out in the country. Observe the traditional Mongolian sports of wrestling, horse racing, and archery—and enjoy the opportunity to try some out yourself! The Gobi Desert, Flaming Cliffs, and Hustai National Park round out a true Mongolia adventure.
