Your specialist for travelling in Mongolia
Russia, the huge landmass in northern Mongolia, is a challenge in itself. Mongolia was not only politically connected with its "big brother" for a long time. Just to the north, the Russian province of Buratia joins. The inhabitants of this province are the descendants of Dshinggis Khan. Irkutsk an old settlement of the Mongols. Baikal or Lake Baikal, is derived from the Mongolian word "Baigal" (nature). It was only through Russian expansion to the east that the Mongolians were expelled from this region.Read more
In the immediate vicinity of Mongolia, in the middle of the Siberian highlands, lies one of the Russian pearls - Lake Baikal. Baikal Nur or rich lake, is the deepest lake and also contains the oldest fresh water. Due to the climatic conditions, this lake does not have any semi-annual water circulation, which means that fossil water can accumulate at only four degrees Celsius. Hard to describe the fascination the lake has for everyone. In 1996 the lake was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site..Read more

The "Far East" of Russia, or Siberia, is the ultimate challenge for motorcyclists. The entire route consists of three major road sections, the "Baikal","Amur" and "Ussuri" highway. The names of these streets are music in his ears for the friend of the long ways. The majority of the route is asphalted, but several km still have to be covered on gravel roads and even today, it leads over long distances through completely untouched landscapes of the Taiga. In the past, the section from Chita to Khabarovsk had to be loaded onto the train.
After 4750 km you reach the port city Vladivostok. Russian access to the Pacific Ocean. The name of the city can be derived from two words "vlade" = dominate and "vostok" = east. The city is not only the gateway to the "warm seas" for Russia, but also an important industrial and military center. But before we reach the easternmost centre of Russia, all participants will be faced with the longest adventure of the Taiga.
One of the most beautiful parts of the tour is the trip through the unknown coastal region on the Japanese Sea. From Khabarovsk, we drive on small side roads to the coast. Partly on old military tracks from the Second World War. The route leads us into the "Ussurian jungle", the only region in Siberia where the Siberian tiger still lives freely.
The trip is in many ways a pilot tour. Many things that cannot be planned exactly beforehand can affect the course of the trip. A high degree of flexibility is therefore expected from all participants.
