About Us

History & Timeline

Off The Map Tours has been running for more than two decades and has a history of innovation and achievement. Starting in 1998, we initially did mountain biking, horse riding, hiking treks, and cultural tours. Later we branched into motorbike tours, becoming Mongolia's leading off-road motorcycle tour company.

We research and operate all our own trips and have done ground operations for adventure tour operators from around the world. We have used expert suppliers to provide the best and most suitable equipment for the conditions, enabling us to do the most exciting and well-run challenging tours in Mongolia.
