FAMILY TOUR - LIVING THE NOMAD LIFE

Best features of this tour

This tour was specially made for families with children: a lot of fun activities and not long transfers which make the tour easy for families.
We worked hard on the tour and balanced the cultural visits covering the Bayan Gobi camel ride, Orkhon Valley horseback riding, observe the wild Przewalski’s horses and cultural exchange with nomadic families.
Accommodation in yurts outside Ulaanbaatar: 3 nights in yurt camps (with showers) and 4 nights in a nomadic family’s yurt.
The family tour exclusively offers a visit to the nomadic family to experience their traditional daily life.

Tour itinerary

You'll realize bringing your children to the nomadic life turns to be the best decisions you have ever made!

Experiencing the adventure full of emotion and excitement will probably leave your family speechless.

We have tested and improved our tour again and again until it becomes comfortable with children. In order to do so, our tour has been tested with our own children!

We have studied and focused on the special needs of your children in order to keep them comfy and fun throughout the trip. Visits, horse or camel rides, stays with nomads as well as the transfers are carefully planned for children.

Day 1: Ulaanbaatar

Arrival in Ulaanbaatar

Your English speaking translator picks you up at Chinggis Khan Airport.

Lunch at the Hustai yurt camp.
We drive in the Park with the 4×4 vehicle to find and observe the Takhi (the wild Przewalski’s horses).

At the end of the day, we reach the nomadic family who will welcome us for 4 days. We will stay in separate yurts beside the family (4-5 single beds per yurt).

The comfort is minimal compared to the yurt camps but you'll experience the true nature of the nomadic daily life.

Days 5, 6 and 7: Living The Nomad Life

Living for the entire 3 days among the nomadic family is the best part of this tour! Riding horses and being a part of a family has always been an amazing experience for every child of the visiting family.

There's no strict plan for this part of the tour. We leave the program flexible in order to let you freely experience nomadic daily life. 

Your translator and the host family will explain the tradition as you enjoy your nomadic life.

This will be the best cultural exchange experience for both of you and the family.

Do not worry if you are traveling with advanced or beginner riders. We can always arrange the schedule of a horse ride for the different levels of riders.

Relax and enjoy your tour in every possible way. You can help with the herd, or prepare lunch and dinner with the family. Being a part of the family is the best you can get from this tour!

It's completely your choice whether you want to ride a horse or travel by car to Orkhon Falls.

You will enjoy Mongolian traditional barbeque (offered only for honored guests traditionally) prepared by our host family on the last evening.

Stay overnight at the Yurt.

Day 8: Orkhon Valley – Bayan Gobi

We will depart from our nomad family after lunch and here is the most difficult part of the trip because you cannot imagine how close we become with the family even though it is just 3 days.

Travel to Khogno Khan Park.
