The Mongolia and Russian Altai Overland Journeys expedition is a tour of contrasts. Steppes and mountains; deserts and lush valleys; nomad livestock herders and huge arable croplands; modern cities and ancient settlements; dirt roads and new tarmac; ger camps and 4* hotels. We take you on a journey from the modern city of Ulaanbaatar to the capital of Siberia, Novosibirsk. Expect the unexpected.
The Russian Altai reminds many of our New Zealand explorers of Queenstown but less crowded. The scenery is every bit as spectacular just over a much larger area with fewer people. After the vast steppe lands of Mongolia and a spectacular mountain pass on the way to the border, the lush valleys of the Altai with their wildflowers and butterflies can be a complete surprise.

After an exceptional rural journey, we arrive in the modern city of Novosibirsk home of our Russian tour partners. With one of the most beautiful railway stations on the Trans-Siberian Rail and shops to rival Paris, the contrasts continue.
Join us on this amazing journey from Ulaanbaatar to Novosibirsk and stay with us for another epic adventure to Magadan and on to Vladivostok. Or head to Europe or home from Novosibirsk.It is a relatively short flight to Frankfurt and on to any destination you please.
