A hot destination and an adventurous and exciting way to see and experience an amazing country.
Mongolia is a country we admire, love to visit, enjoy the culture and the dramatic countryside.
Traditionally we traverse this diverse and vast country in the relative comfort of modern 4x4 vehicles, fording rivers, following dirt tracks and traversing mountain trails and negotiating sand dunes. Mongolia has it all as well as mostly settled and warm weather in the summer months of July and August.
When we received a call from a group of UTV (also called side x sides) enthusiasts to investigate any chance that a tour could be arranged in such vehicles in July 2019, we set the wheels in motion to see if indeed UTV’s were used in Mongolia.
As a consequence we located the only 6 UTV’s in the country and have arranged a fully inclusive tour for 10 days within Mongolia.
It combines the excitement of riding mostly dirt roads, and plenty of opportunity to immerse in the culture of the wilderness, and discover the amazing history of the Mongolian empire.
The UTV’s are modern units and the tour is fully guided with a support crew and vehicle to keep the convoy moving. Accommodation is in traditional Mongolian “Gur” tents and some camping with meals provided. At the start and finish of the trip a 4 star plus hotel in Ulaanbaatar is a nice way to finish.
