Wedged between Siberia and northern China, Mongolia is the world’s least densely populated country. It is one of the last remaining places on earth where the silence and emptiness of the landscapes around you truly fill your soul. Still, Mongolia’s 3.2 million people proudly keep their ancient history and rich cultural traditions alive—and protect its unique natural charms, from the oldest national park on the planet to the extremely rare Bactrian camel. On this journey, venture into the wilds of the steppes and deserts for an intimate, unforgettable discovery of a world that transcends time.

    “It was a fantastic experience, a true expedition. The mountains were a highlight, but dining outside and sunset drinks in the Gobi Desert were pretty fantastic too.”

    “The trip gave us special access to unforgettable experiences in a truly remarkable place. Western Mongolia in particular will stay with me for a long time—the ability to spend time with nomadic cultures in way that felt more like cultural exchange than cultural tourism was really special.”
  • Member Stories

    “This trip was fantastic; the name “Wild Mongolia “ really sums it up. Meeting the different nomadic people was truly an opportunity of a lifetime and they could not have been more hospitable! This trip is an adventure. It is a bit rustic and so it's not for everyone, but for those who love being outdoors and having safari-style dirt road drives and adventures, this is the trip for you!”
