The Tsaatan people, who are nomadic reindeer herders, live in the remote taiga of northern Mongolia near the country's border. They are one of the last remaining groups of nomadic reindeer herders in the world, and their numbers have decreased significantly from 2280 to 616 at the end of the 20th century. Their way of life is heavily reliant on their reindeer, and they often move several times a year in search of suitable weather and food for their animals. Thanks to various organizations, individuals, foundations and the Mongolian government, efforts have been made to preserve their traditional way of life and increase the reindeer population. We offer a unique opportunity to experience their culture and create unforgettable memories.

The displayed price is for a group of 3 people and more. The total price would be € 3,100 if you are 1 or 2 people.
