In 1992 Rik pedaled from Holland to Mongolia on his two year world bike tour. He met his future wife Tseren while in Ulaanbaatar and they started exploring Mongolia together.
A year later Rik and Tseren got a request from a Dutch company to organize a cycling trip in Mongolia.
Today we have gained priceless experience and knowledge in traveling around Mongolia. We are the leading Ulaanbaatar based company in the field of active and adventure tours. We are young, energetic as well as professional and responsible. We explore and set up all of our tours ourselves and being true observers of different cultures we promise that your visit to Mongolia will be more than just an effort in Mongolian sight-seeing but a true adventure that will bring you closer to the heartland of Mongolia.
Our goal is to provide the best active and adventure holidays possible while benefiting from our host communities responsibly. We will take you to the most fascinating and exciting places we have ourselves discovered. We have a wild choice of well crafted adventure holidays in Mongolia and we can design tours to suit the individual requests of our clients.
