Trans-Mongolian Express

For a fuller insight into Mongolia, why not experience our Naadam Festival Trans-Mongolian departure in July - a journey across Russia onboard the Golden Eagle combined with a visit to the Mongolian national festival.

Golden Eagle Trans-Mongolian Express (Eastbound)

Naadam is the one and only Big Event in Mongolia - a spectacularly colourful national festival, held every year. Naadam literally means 'three manly games'. Known as the world's second oldest Olympics, it celebrates what defined civilisation in the Steppes eight centuries ago: archery, wrestling and horse-riding.
