DESTINATION MANAGMENT

Your Western Mongolian Adventure Travel Specialist

Are you a tour company which needs a reliable partner in the Western part of Mongolia? We have the Aimag wide Kazakh family connections which turn a good adventure tour into a fantastic and unique eco-adventure experience for your clients.

An experience they will remember always and talk about to all their friends for years to come – isn’t that what you want, a great source of new referral business?

A joint Mongolian Kazakh and Australian partnership, Bear Valley Adventures DMC is ready to customise a real cross cultural and outdoor experience. Where else might you find a Muslim Kazakh patriarch consulting a Buddhist Mongolian healer? Only in the West, where traditional lifestyles have not changed for hundreds of years.

Gateway to the fabulous Altai mountains, our Kazakh family networks guarantee a once in a lifetime eco-adventure for your clients. Horse riding, camping out (or traditional hospitality in a family Ger with a local host), fishing, trekking thru majestic mountains and over glaciers – it’s all here.

Maybe you would like to be able to offer your clients that epitome of Kazakh culture, a real Eagle Hunting expedition in the dead of a harsh Mongolian winter?

Because of our Australian part ownership, we have a pretty good idea of the expectations of Western clientele. Which is why the Bear Valley Ger Camp (owned by us of course) in Olgii guarantees hot showers, fast wireless internet (plus our own internet kiosk) and real coffee, so your clients can unwind fully before the next leg of their Mongolian sojourn.

Tour leaders are also trained in Wilderness First aid (a seven day full time course) so your clients can rest assured that if any health issues appear, they will be well taken care of. Safety is our prime concern for all clients.

Safe Eco-adventure travel is the future. Surveys prove that more toursits than ever are driven by values which include caring for local cultures, saving the environment, plus the lure of excitement in out of the way places that are untouched by mainstream tourism. And Western Mongolia has it all.

Let us take the worry from your shoulders and organise a profitable custom FIT or group eco-adventure tour for your company – contact us today…

Why Bear Valley Adventures?

Real Adventure

A "tour" with Bear Valley Adventures is a true adventure. You never quite know what is going to happen.
Sometimes, our horse trekkers will have sunshine for most of their trip - at other times, you might have to battle the elements and find out exactly why the locals wear lots of thick furs and heavy felt clothing. (If you have a look at the "About Us" page, you'll see a picture of Rick modelling just how to wear fox fur...)
The local wildlife is another unpredictable factor - you might get the chance to see a wild eagle soaring above the steppes or hear wolves in the distan... or have a fox attempt to raid your food supplies in the middle of the night when you're on a trek!
It's human and horse against the elements, rough, raw and ready - just the way an adventure ought to be.
However, we take safety seriously, and we always do our best to make sure that we have a trained first aid specialist with every tour (and hot showers and real coffee for when you come back to base).

Sustainable Tourism

Bear Valley Adventures is sensitive in the forms of transport we use to get around the steppes.
The last thing we want to do is to destroy the wilderness we love by damaging it through excessive use of technology. Where appropriate, we'll use 4x4 vehicles, keeping to established trails to minimise damage to the local steppe environment.
At other times, we'll use the same sort of sustainable transport that the locals use: the tough little Mongolian horses and camels.

We also work in partnership with the local people, and a lot of the profit made by the tours goes into improving the local community, especially in the areas of health and education, while still preserving and encouraging their traditional nomadic lifestyle and values.

Watch Some of Our Best Adventure Videos

Want to see what you're in store for if you sign up for any of Bear Valley Adventures' great trips? Our videos will give you a brief glimpse of the expanse of the Mongolian steppes that our horse treks cross (although a mere video doesn't do them justice and you really have to go there to experience the full impact of this vast wilderness). Want to see just how big a golden eagle is compared to a human and how these huge birds of prey hunt alongside people? Want to get an idea of just how big the fish are in this part of the world? Don't believe that a city slicker from Australia can master some of the impressive feats of riding that the locals have perfected? We hope that our videos will whet your appetite for the sort of adventure that only Bear Valley Adventure can offer.
