Tour itinerary

Dreaming about galloping in Mongolia, but you can't leave for 2 or 3 weeks? This ride is for you!

We have concentrated a maximum of horse riding hours in an 8 days trip ...

Less than 2 hours from Ulan Bator, you will find willing and endurant horses, awaiting you for an intense ride in the steppes.

With your English speaking translator, and guided by authentic nomads, you will discover the heart of Mongolia...

Day 1: Ulan Bator

Welcome to Mongolia!

Your English or French speaking translator is waiting for you at Ulan Bator airport at the arrival of Turkish Airline flight (early in the morning) for a grouped transfer.

Immediate departure for the Mongolian Steppe!

A short 1h30 drive takes you to the endless plains dotted with the yurts of the nomadic herders. The first herds of horses roaming free cross the road in front of your vehicle. Here you are, in Mongolia ...

Lunch at the yurt camp.

We spend the evening with a family of nomads, discovering how their traditional way of life and the famous yurt, called ger in Mongolia.

For this first night in Mongolia, you will sleep in a yurt camp in the wilderness (up to 4 riders per yurt - showers in a separate building).

 

Days 2 to 6: Horse riding trail in the Mongolian steppes

5 days on horseback in the typical lanscapes of Central Mongolia.

For this ride, we have selected the horses of a breeder who takes part to many Naadam races (he is a member of the Mongolian Equestrian Federation). His horses are fast and endurant even all of them are not always race horses.

Guided by a nomadic herder, with the help of your English speaking translator, you will ride through steppes, hill and valleys, together with small mountains covered with larch forests. That's the Mongolia you have been dreaming of ...

Many nomadic families live in this region, with their yurts and their herds of horses, cattle, goats and sheep. You will have the opportunity of discovering their traditional way of life. You will camp close to a nomadic family at least one night during the ride.

The pace of the ride is quite fast, as the support vehicle carries all the luggage and joins the group for lunch and at the end of the day. You do not have to carry anything on your horse, which allows long and fast gallops in this very open terrain.

Dinners and nights in tents.

We chose the camping sites carefully, once in the middle of nowhere in huge steppes, another night close to a river, another night in the forest where we often hear wolves, and one night close to a nomadic family.

 

Day 7: End of the horse ride - Ulan Bator

Last half day on horseback in this beautiful part of Mongolia.

Picnic lunch.

Transfer to Ulan Bator, the rest of the afternoon is dedicated to shopping downtown, where you will find traditional clothing and objects of daily life.

In the late afternoon, you will attend a show with traditional dances, music and songs from Mongolia, especially the amazing Khoomei.

No dinner included, to let you choose among the varied dining opportunities offered by Ulan Bator.

Night at Nine hotel or similar (3* - twin room).

 

Day 8 - Ulan Bator

Breakfast and transfer to airport on time for Turkish Airlines flights.

Tour Reviews


Your travel expert - Sabine

"We created this equestrian tour for the riders who want to visit Mongolia on horseback but can not afford to take long holidays in summer. In 8 days, you will experience the best of what Mongolia has to offer to horse lovers: great gallops in the steppes, a night in a yurt, encounters with nomads ... Unbeatable value for money."

Contact


- "I wanted to tell you how fabulous this experience was for the two of us.

Our translator Dondov, and the rest of the Mongolian team (whose name I'm afraid of of writing) have been wonderful in kindness, humor and generosity. If you have the opportunity to thank them again for us, do it warmly!

Cooking, games, campfires and a lot of songs have brought a lot to a trip that would have even been wonderful without it.

Moggi's horses (probable example of a bad spelling of Mongolian name ...) were exceptional of endurance and kindness. The scenery was breathtaking and the Mongols explained us that our itinerary has been totally created by you!

I have absolutely no reproach about our journey through Mongolia. Since we return, I spend my time talking about this trip to my friends, urging them to call you if they want to try the experience.

Thank you very much for this time out of time and this dream that you have allowed us to achieve. " - Catherine and Arthur F. (June 2019 - translated from French)


- "The bravest horse I have ever met, a very comfortable saddle, nomadic equestrian guides always checking that everything is OK ... Our guide was great, always smiling. Beautiful and varied landscapes.
To say it all, the trip was wonderful, the hardest time has been when we had to leave at the end of the tour. But we will be back, for a longer stay!" - Flore (July 2016)
