The country boasts spectacular scenery, from majestic mountains to canyons, deserts and crystal clear rivers and lakes. You will be deeply touched by the warm hospitality of the locals.

Known as the "Land of the Blue Sky," Mongolia is famous for its extraordinary climate that leaves the sky clear for more than two-thirds of the year. During your Mongolian adventure, you will explore the vast Gobi Desert, one of the last places on Earth where nomadic life is still a living tradition. You will travel in comfortable, specially prepared Toyota Landcruisers, driven by local experts, and stay in traditional Ger camps for an authentic cultural experience.

This private session with Kazakh eagle hunters is the perfect opportunity to experience the ancient art of eagle falconry and witness how they celebrate their heritage. After the session, you will be taken to a series of extraordinary mountain locations for an intimate and breathtaking encounter with the eagle hunters, while photographing them against the backdrop of some of the most breathtaking scenes to be found in the wild.
