Challenge yourself an unrivaled new adventure! Join Vintage Rides for a motorsport experience unlike anything you've faced before: crossing the frozen lake of Khövsgöl on Royal Enfield sidecars in extreme conditions with temperatures plunging as low as -40 degrees celsius. Exceeding one’s limits, forging deep solidarity, and unforeseen meteorological conditions - these are a few of the elements that will make your adventure truly unforgettable. On this motorbike tour in Monglia, four 2010 Royal Enfields from our own fleet will be equipped with Yeti sidecars, specially designed for off-road excursions. Set off for the biggest adventure of your life!

YOUR MOTORCYCLE TOUR IN MONGOLIA 10 stages - 360 miles

D1 / Ulan Bator airport

Talk about excitement! When you set foot in Mongolia for the first time, you just know that you’re about to embark on one of the most amazing adventures of your life. Transfer from the airport to the hotel.

D2 / Ulan Bator - Moron - Ulan Bator - Moron

Our adventure begins in the early morning as we have a long day ahead of us. We will be transferred by private vehicle from Ulan Bator to the town of Moron, located in the remote region of Khövsgöl. Khövsgöl is home to a lake of the same name; it is situated at 1,600 metres altitude and flows east into its big brother, Lake Baikal, in neighboring Russia. We drive through the steppes enveloped in a white blanket of snow.

D3 / Moron - Hatgal - 56 miles

We set off for Hatgal on a good tarmac road, which gives you the chance to get used to the Royal Enfield sidecars’ highly nimble steering. It’s biting cold. When we reach Hatgal, everybody pitches in to fit studded tyres to the sidecars. We experience our first spin on the lake, which feels otherworldly. We discover the Mongolian National Fleet, which is docked up for the winter, before enjoying the sunset reflecting on the ice.

D4 / Hatgal - Jigleg - 62 miles

We glide over the ice, which is sometimes smooth and sometimes quite rough towards the lake’s western shore. Whether you're piloting the bike or in the sidecar, the experience is truly extraordinary. Every 45 minutes, we stop to check our hands and feet and warm up with a coffee break. It’s important to look out for each other; in extreme conditions like these, team spirit is essential to ensure that we all reach our destination safe and sound.

D5 / Jigleg - Hanh - 62 miles

Now that we’re feeling more comfortable on the motorcycles, we set off towards Hanh. Sitting a stone's throw from the Siberian border, this is the highest village in the region. If we are lucky, we’ll be able to ride over smooth ice and have fun with some thrilling gliding games. In Hanh, we meet a nice family who welcome us to yurts reserved just for us: what a memorable luxury!

D6 / Hanh - Modon Huis - 62 miles

Just when we think we’ve got the hang of steering our Royal Enfield sidecars on ice, we’re faced with a new challenge: the track. It’s rough and uneven, so we have to be extra careful as we reacclimate to terra firma. We enter snow-covered coniferous forests, hoping that the powdery snow is not too deep and we do not accidentally venture onto a river that isn’t quite frozen.

D7 / Modon Huis - Hatga - 62 miles

Our well-practiced group takes to the lake one last time. As always, we’re bound to come across new surprises! We confidently push our Royal Enfields to skip across the frozen surface, as if saying our farewells to this never-ending lake. Back on the tarmac, it feels foreign and amusing to rediscover what normal steering feels like! How can we find the words to describe what we have experienced? Maybe we can’t!

D8 / Hatgal - Moron - 56 miles

This is a buffer day to account for any unexpected eventualities during the tour. If everything goes according to the schedule, we’ll use the last day for one last spin between the boats on the frozen lake before hitting the road towards Moron and a well-deserved hot shower.

D9 / Moron - Uan Bator

Today, we set off for Ulan Bator in an UAZ (a Russian van). We take one last glance at the steppes, awash with our memories. Whatever the weather, the quality of the ice or the mechanical glitches that we might have had, there is no doubt that you’ll be certain that this tour will always be a part of you. We spend the last night in a real hotel and it feels good! Those who wish, may share dinner in Ulan Bator.

Those with morning flights will be transferred to the airport. If not, you can enjoy more time in the capital before heading back home with a head full of memories.
