Mongolia's unique system of waterways provides one of the world's best environments for fly-fishing, among other exhilarating outdoor activities. Around 200 miles of blue water snakes its way through the Mongolian countryside, serving up some of the best trout fishing on the planet, while also being home to taimen, the world's largest member of the salmon family. Fishing can be experienced aboard drift boats or from tented camps, flanked by majestic cliff faces and natural scenery untouched and unchanged since the days of Genghis Khan. Visitors can also expect encounters with the local nomads tending their herds of sheep, goats, yaks, horses, and camels. The journey into the difficult-to-reach river regions combine flights and scenic overland drives, making for a comfortable, seamless Mongolian river experience.

One of the most remarkable things about flying privately through Mongolia is that the whole country becomes available to you, and roads, airports, and accommodations are no longer considerations of your visit.
Whether it’s the frozen ice sheets of Baikal or the Flaming Cliffs of the Gobi, Mongolia and Siberia offer travelers a chance to get close to mother nature and far from everything else.
