Join this magical mystery journey across Mongolia with professional tour leader Rose Toohey: “I went to Mongolia a few years back and was captivated by the scenery and the warmth of the locals. I was amazed, and a bit blown away, by the intensity of Naadam, and now want to share the experience with other eager travellers”.
Experience a unique, expressive, local and vivid experience of nomadic culture, ancient heritage, national pride and a unique event that is worthy of experiencing at least once in your life time.
Discover the legendary Gobi Desert and the open plains of Mongolia. Ride a camel to the singing sand dunes, and experience the life of a nomad family.
Join in the excitement of Naadam, Mongolia’s national festival. Watch the wrestlers, archers and horse riders striving for honour, and be welcomed into the nomadic homes.
This will be an experience, an adventure, and a journey to remember.
Mongolia is a compelling and enthralling destination. The vast grassland in the east sees the sun creep above the horizon as though it’s rising from the land itself. The Gobi Desert reveals itself in pockets of breathtaking scenery, bridged by vast stretches of desolation where silence dominates.
Central Mongolia is home to ancient Kingdoms whose legends still loom large in today’s culture. Travellers are greeted with the warmest of welcomes and can experience the landscape and rich traditions and lifestyle of the nomads who have been living the same way for millennia.
The Naadam Festival is the only one of its kind, and expresses the core of nomadic culture. It is the honoured celebration of a national independence and pride, and an outstanding combination of arts and sports, featuring wrestling, horseracing and archery as well as elements of arts, such as throat singing and folklore dancing.
