Wintertrip with Reindeer Herders

Cooking over an open fire, sleeping in tipis, and riding reindeer will be unforgettable memories for you..



We prepare creative and innovative programmes according to your wishes and your budget


Our winter trip with reindeer herders offers you an extraordinary opportunity to experience the reindeer nomad, Tsaatan, the last and only nomad in the world who herds reindeer. They respect nature and animals, as they did before the beginning of this modern world, and are faithful to the unique traditions of their ancestors. Although the winter is cold and rough, Mother Nature actually gives us the most unique opportunity to admire her most convincing beauty!

Cooking over an open fire, sleeping in tipis, and riding reindeer will be unforgettable memories for you. You will be as close to this unique life and culture as if you were visiting this planet from another or being teleported from another age. But this is absolutely another reality that you have to experience at least once in your life. In the end, you will not be the same person; something in yourself will certainly change.

Day 1. Ulaanbaatar
The departure date depends on the international flight to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Arrive at Chinggis Khaan Airport in Ulaanbaatar. Our tour guide will pick you up from the airport and make a city tour (to the monastery of Gandan and the museum). Accommodation: 3-star hotel with breakfast included.

Day 2. Amarbayasgalant Monastery
We travel early in the morning to the stunning monastery, the Amarbayasgalant complex, which was constructed in 1727–1736 in honor of Undur Gegeen Zanabazar, the first Bogd and Mongolia's foremost Buddhist figure. He was the father of Mongolian Buddhism and the maker of the famous, globally renowned minted Buddha statues. This monastery's design blends seamlessly with the surrounding landscape. The monastery is erected against the sheer cliffs of Burenkhan Mountain, which forms the back of the long, deep valley where it is located. The Evin River supplies the valley with ample water, and it is widely known for its lush pastureland and vegetation. Over 40 temples were initially built on the unique terrace of the Amarbayasgalant Monastery, which was encircled by a wall that was 207 x 175 meters in size. The monastery is built symmetrically. The engineering solutions used in its development exhibit the planning characteristics of Mongolian national architecture. The routing of roof water via the interior of four columns, underneath the floor, through stone grooves, and away from the Tsogchin temple is one of the intriguing methods. Of all the Buddhist temples that survived Mongolia's political unrest in the 1930s, this one is the most genuine. 28 temples have survived and have been safeguarded by the state since 1944, despite damage sustained during the political persecution of national and religious culture. With the help of UNESCO, the measurement and restoration of this monastery got under way in 1972 and haven't finished. Accommodation: in a Ger. Meals: B, L, and D.

Day 3. Northern Mongolia
We will go by car to Murun, the provincial seat of northern Mongolia's Khuvsgul Province, in the morning. On this route, it will be the farthest away. We will stop for lunch on the route to Murun and pass the Selenge River, Mongolia's largest river, and Uran Togoo Mountain, an extinct volcano. Before dinner, we'll get to Murun and check into the hotel. Accommodation: in a hotel. Meals: B, L, and D.

Day 4. Ar Bosgot Cliff
We will travel another 180 kilometers to Ulaan-Uul town. Driving through the Khoridol Saridag National Protected Area, Delgerkhaan Mountain, the mountain's highest summit (3093 m above sea level), and the lovely Ar Bosgot cliffs is intriguing. We travel a short distance to Ar Bosgot Cliff after lunch. The distance to the town is 37 kilometers. The peaceful, gorgeous canyon of Ar Bosgot and its snow-covered trees are a winter dream that awaits us. It will be a crisp and invigorating day. Accommodation: in a Ger. Meals: B, L, and D.

Days 5. and 6. A visit to the Tsaatan (reindeer herders)
The tour's high point is for us! After landing in Tsagaan Nuur town, we travel a short distance (approximately 40 km) to east Taiga, where we spend the next two full days learning about the way of life of the Tsaatan (reindeer herders), their fascinating culture, and actual shamanic practices. We'll ride a reindeer as well. You will spend the evening chatting around the campfire and taking pleasure in its kindness. You won't forget these days for the rest of your life.Taiga is a biome characterized by coniferous forests, most of which are pine, spruce and larch. This is an opportunity to capture images of reindeer, the interaction between humans and reindeer, and a reindeer herder's likeness. Due to their semi-wild nature, Mongolian reindeer are not given any additional food. Reindeer, however, require extra salt throughout the winter. As a result, you can utilize it to take the images you want. Accommodation: in a Tipis. Meals: B, L, and D.

Day 7. The magical Jarganat River
After having an unforgettable day at Reindeer Herder, we'll drive the roughly 70 km to Renchin Lkhumbe, another little town. There is a river called Jarganat that is never frozen and is situated 5 kilometers from the town, despite the fact that the wintertime temperature ranges from -40 to -50 degrees. Such a lovely world! You will be in awe of nature's beauty. Accommodation: in a Ger. Meals: B, L, and D.

Day 8. The Blue Pearl of Mongolia
We carry on to Khuvsgul, one of the freshest lakes on earth. Nearly 70% of Mongolia's fresh water and 0.4% of the world's fresh water are contained in the lake, which is the second-largest freshwater lake in Asia. 99 springs and rivers come into the lake, which is referred to as the "blue pearl of Mongolia" due to its crystal clear water, while only one river, the Eg River, exits the Khuvsgul.
We will spend a night at the ger camp here today, and this is a fantastic opportunity to experience the breeze from one of the world's cleanest lakes of pure water. You can see the lake bottom as you go roughly 80 kilometers on the ice lake. Ice on it like a glass. The journey will be one to remember. Accommodation: in a gercamp. Meals: B, L, and D.

Day 9. Deer Stones
After refueling in a pleasant Ger Camp on Lake Khuvsgul, we drive to the deer stones, which are obelisks with depictions of flying deer on their sides.

We will experience the Mongolian winter wonderland while sledding with a pack of Siberian huskies. Other than dog walking, we take a short stroll through the Ariyabal Temple, a temple dedicated to Ariyabal meditation. He is situated on a mountain in the National Park's picturesque area.
