Mongolia finally
opened for tourism

After two years of being sealed off to tourism and much toing and froing, Mongolia has actually opened its borders to the world.

Mongolia the country that is perfect for social distancing is now declared open

The news:

On February 14th, the Mongolian government decided to share a little love. It announced that the international borders, which have remained closed since March 2020, are now open to all visitors (standard visa regulations permitting).

It's taken some time and a few false headlines but on Valentine's day without any warning or fanfare, the Mongolian government held an impromptu press briefing and announced that the borders of the nomadic nation would open without restriction. 

What's to see:

So why join us in what is being termed revenge tourism and travel to Mongolia a country nicknamed the outdoor capital of the world.

We have miles of rolling countryside, vast deserts, year-long snow-capped mountains and traditional nomadic herders all in one of the least populated counties on the globe. If you have a thirst for adventure, knowledge, the great outdoors or unique local festivals then Mongolia is for you and you should probably book one of our tours below.

Soviet Mongolia Tour: Join us as we travel out of Ulaanbaatar and search out a little of Mongolia’s communist history. Mongolia's red past is quite fascinating as it was a Soviet satellite and the site of many a remote Russian airbase until the early '90s.
