Small-Group Horseback Riding Day Tour
From US$85.00
Lowest Price Guaranteed
Experience life like a nomad during this small group horseback riding tour in Terelj National Park. Travel two hours outside the capital city of Ulaanbaatar to the stunning rural landscapes and rolling hills of the Mongolian countryside. Follow a highly-qualified guide through the vast open space, then sit down for a traditional Mongolian meal that includes local beer, chums and meat. Tour is limited to four people to ensure a truly personal experience.
What to Expect
In a country with an equal number of horses to people, a quintessential activity in Mongolia is to go horseback riding through the stunning Mongolian landscape in a traditional nomadic setting. Perfectly situated a couple of hours drive from the City of Ulaanbaatar, Gorkhi-Terelj National Park is one of Mongolia’s most scenic and the country’s third largest protected area.
Your private English-speaking tour guide will meet you at the location of your choice in Ulaanbaatar at 8:50am. Your day will start with a brief city tour, followed by a car trip to Terelj, where the horseback riding will take place. Your thrilling horseback riding experience will be 3-hours long and led by a highly experienced trainer as well as your tour guide. Throughout the horseback riding tour, you will explore the beautiful and breathtaking landscapes of magnificent mountains in the backdrop with eternal blue skies.
This trip is a truly unique experience to step back in a time of a simpler way of life: the Mongolian Nomad. During the tour, you will explore the wilderness, Turtle Rock (gigantic eighty feet tall boulder in the shape of a turtle), Tuul River, and visit local households and nomad families for lunch. At the end of the horseback riding tour, you will enjoy a flavorful traditional Mongolian meal. After an eventful day, you will be returned back to the location of your choice in Ulaanbaatar where this adventure concludes.

Definitely, I had never ridden before and they went at exactly my pace. The ride isn't too long or far, if you don't want to go faster than walking speed then you won't
