A destination for those with a sense of adventure

Ever wonder why you read so much about cruising, or vacationing in France, or Bali?

And so little about holidays in Albania, Uzbekistan, Costa Rica or Bulgaria.

It's because the mainstream media is driven by advertising dollars - and some destinations have a lot more to spend than others.

Take Mongolia, for instance. A fascinating destination that certainly flies under the radar.

A 12-Day Trip to Mongolia's Golden Eagle Festival certainly sounds fascinating.

In remote Bayan-Ulgii, a dwindling number of ethnic Kazakhs carry on a 6,000-year-old tradition - hunting with golden eagles, one of the world’s largest predatory birds.

The Golden Eagle Festival sees the eagle handlers display their birds’ speed, skill and training, as well as the bond that forms between bird and human.

The tour also features Mongolia’s capital, Ulaanbaatar, with its Buddhist and nomadic heritage, and the fabled Gobi Desert, as well as a visit to Kazakh families around Tolbo (Frog) Lake, hearing about their way of life in the Mongolian outback.

The one-off tour is scheduled for September 28-October 9, 2019, and prices start at $7,595 USD. For more information, visit
