Travel information

Not only will you start your trip with great interest in Mongolia, but you will definitely want to know how the itinerary will be along the way. Here we have listed a small selection of the most important points.

Ablauf und Organisation

Steppenfuchs Reisen, whether simple round trip, expedition, or horse trekking, are designed so that any adventurous traveler can participate. The goal of each trip is to discover and experience the different Mongolian landscapes and ways of life. Flexibility, bringing positive, renouncing the usual comfort, are qualities you should bring to the success of a trip. The nature can be planned least, moreover, there are always situations which encourage to stay in one place. As a result, the trips do not slavishly follow the schedule, which can then lead to changes in the course. It makes sense to have a dialogue between the tour guide and you. We are not slavishly bound to the tour schedule. Only in the conversation on the way always arise wishes, which we would like to meet, if possible.

Guide, Fahrer und Helfer

Das Richtige Team, ist das A und O einer Reise und vieles hängt von einer guten Reiseleitung ab. Unsere Reiseleiter sind ausschließlich Mongolen mit guten Landeskenntnissen, die im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes, Botschafter ihres Landes sind. Die Reiseleiter sprechen alle ausreichend die Landessprache ihrer Gäste.Allen aber gemeinsam ist, dass sie keine ausgebildeten Wissenschaftler sind und somit auch keine wissenschaftlichen Vorträge halten können. Sie bemühen sich aber, für Sie den kulturellen Unterschied zu überbrücken und Sie an einer fremden Kultur teilhaben zu lassen.Zum Team gehören selbstverständlich auch die Fahrer, Tierführer und je nach Gruppengröße auch ein Koch und weitere Helfer. Diese bringen sich selbstverständlich mit ein. Viele kleine organisatorische Dinge werden von ihnen meist unbemerkt im Hintergrund erledigt und tragen somit zum Gelingen einer Reise bei.

Fahren und Gefahren

Steppenfuchs Reisen uses only Russian all-terrain vehicles, either the jeep or the all-terrain minibus, depending on the size of the group. There is a reason for this, because according to our experience only these vehicles are able to handle the stress and because they can be repaired by the drivers everywhere and at any time due to their simple technology. If you wish, you can of course also make your trip in a western off-road vehicle. Our drivers have been traveling in the country for many years and know the routes. But also here the course of the tracks changes constantly, so it is not excluded that the drivers have to ask nomads from time to time, which is then again a nice opportunity to look into a yurt and the yurt life. If you are traveling by horse or camel, you will be familiarized with the animals in detail before the start. Horse or camel tours always present us with a great logistical challenge, as sufficient food and water must be provided. Here, changes in the route may occur due to weather conditions.

Essen? Nicht nur Hammel

Do not believe the horror stories about the monotony of Mongolian food while traveling! Steppenfuchs Reisen tries to offer you a varied menu. In most cases, fresh food is used. This is not always easy, because you can only get small amounts of food on the way. The guides, get what is missing, then with the nomads on the way. Cooked is a mixture of Mongolian and European food. Thus, all participants have the opportunity to enjoy the local cuisine. In the countryside, almost all trips are full board. In most cases, you will shop together with the guide at the market at the beginning of a tour. If you like vegetarian food and let us know in advance, we can arrange it. You don't have to bring any dishes with you to Mongolia. We will provide you with everything from plates and cutlery to napkins. Only one wish we have, if you want to eat vegetarian, please let us know in advance. We will try to take this into account on the way.

Gruppengrösse

Eine Ausgewogene Reisegruppe ist der Schlüssel zu einer guten Tour. Steppenfuchs Reisen geht nur mit Kleingruppen auf reisen. Die max. Gruppenstärke sind 8 - 12 Personen. Dadurch werden viele Begegnungen mit Nomaden erst möglich und Sie können die bereiste Region viel intensiver erleben. Kleine Gruppen bedeuten aber auch das jeder mithelfen und anpacken sollte, wenn es um die Erledigung des Tagesablaufes geht. Nur im Team geht es bei einigen der Touren wirklich Reibungslos.

Reiten, die Alternative

Some of our guests have horseback riding on the program, or come specifically to Mongolia for horseback riding. Certainly, in the land of horses riding is simply part of it. The horses here are rather calm and willing, although some have a mind of their own. Please note that experience in horseback riding is not essential, but very useful. The animals you will be given to ride are normal horses, like those used by the nomads. You must also be prepared to learn the necessary Mongolian words for right, left, stop, etc. At the end of the day you have to take care of your mount and prepare it for the night, where it can recover from the day's exertions, just like you. Absolutely necessary are riding boots or similar. Helmet and pants are not, but quite useful.

Schlafen auf der Reise

When choosing accommodation, we try to use country-specific accommodation as often as possible. In the countryside, we primarily camp. If it is suitable or you wish, we also stay in yurt camps. We have chosen for you brand tents of the company DECLATHON. These robust, easy and quick to set up tents have proven to be the best for us. If it can be arranged, or if the weather is once again exceptionally bad. You can also spend the night in the yurts of the nomads. This is usually a special experience, when you can experience the nomads everyday life. In Ulaanbaatar, we have a number of good middle class hotels at our disposal.
