Mongolia Holidays

Enter a rugged wilderness inhabited by nomads

Nomadic herders still roam the vast plains of the Gobi Desert as they’ve done for centuries. Meet them on an unforgettable Mongolia holiday.

As you’ll discover when you head out into the inhospitable Gobi Desert, Mongolia is a country that has a sense of true isolation about it. Its remoteness is all part of the appeal, as are the nomadic herders who still cling to a traditional way of life that’s remained largely unchanged with the passing of the centuries.

Mongolia is known as the Land of the Eternal Blue Sky, because it famously enjoys 250 sunny days a year. You’ll still need to wrap up warm, though: with an average temperature of -1.3 degrees, the Mongolian capital Ulaanbaatar is the world’s coldest.
