A Gravel Cycling Adventure Through A Land Lost In Time
Cycling across Mongolia is as akin to journeying through a land that time has left behind, as it is to cycling through a place. Dirt tracks, trails, and gravel roads lead us across wide-open empty grasslands beneath an azure sky.
The thundering sound of hooves as a heard of horses follow us across the plains, crossing crystal clear rivers, cycling endless open spaces, and watching nomads round up their herds besides our campsite each evening. These are just a few of the unique memories of biking across Mongolia that the adventure cyclists will cherish for years to come.

Cycling with nomads on the Mongolian steppe
Dates: June 2021
After an incredible day of cycling imagine relaxing outside your tent beside a babbling stream when a herd of yak appear over the hill and wander down the valley to drink close to our camp. Two riders approach on horseback, one wears a drab brown robe, the other a vivid blue gown tied around the waist with a sash, and we watch as the two youngsters corral the herd to the safety of their nomadic camp for the night.
To visit Mongolia on our fully supported cycling holiday is not just to visit a far-off land in distance, it also feels like travelling to a different place in time. Mongolia is a land of ger dwelling nomads who spend the year tending their herds and moving on to fresh pastures. And for nine wonderful days, we live amongst this wilderness, cycling through the vastness of the Mongolian Steppe, and spending our nights' camping in the valleys of friendly and ever hospitable nomadic herders, whose way of life has changed little over the centuries.
Join us in Mongolia for a truly memorable cycling adventure.
