The wilds of Mongolia have always sent out a call to those with an adventurous spirit.  One of the true travelling frontiers, Mongolia offers an incredible experience for the cyclist. This tour will take you on a crossing of the Arkhangai Mountains, from the edge of the Gobi desert at Bayanhongor to the old Mongolian capital of Kharkhorin, we cycle into the heart of Mongolia and meet its nomadic peoples. This is an off-roader's dream cycling through a diversity of landscapes, including the mountains of the Arkhanghai, lush green grasslands, pine forests and the spectacular Orkhon Falls. This is a fully supported ride, when outside of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia’s capital. The sheer adventure makes this trip one of our favourites!
