Viking: Mongolia pre or post

Viking is, for the first time, offering guests destination-focused experiences in Mongolia with the new Spirit of Mongolia extension programme.

The five-night, fully guided pre or post-extension will allow guests to further immerse themselves in the region – from the ancient city of Ulaanbaatar to the Gobi Desert.

The Spirit of Mongolia and a variety of other pre and post extensions, including Hong Kong and Beijing, are available for Viking’s new China itineraries: Best of China, China Discovery, Classic China & the Coast and Wonders of China.

Torstein Hagen, chairman of Viking says the Mongolia experiences follow the recent announcement of Viking’s new China ocean voyages.

‘With its geographic diversity and incredible history, Mongolia is an extraordinary destination, making it a natural extension to our new China itineraries,’ he says.

Guests booked on the five-night Spirit of Mongolia pre or post extension will begin their journey in the city of Ulaanbaatar, where they will meet their Viking representative and explore the sites of the city. Continuing on to Dalanzadgad, they will transfer to the award-winning Three Camel Lodge, an eco-lodge nestled in the foothills of the Altai Mountains in the Gobi Desert near the Gurvan Saikhan National Park.

Following their time in the Gobi Desert, guests return to Ulaanbaatar for additional exploration for one night before continuing their journey home or embarking on their Viking voyage in China on Viking Yi Dun.

Dedicated specifically to exploring destinations in China, with an onboard experience that complements guests’ discoveries ashore, the Viking Yi Dun is a sister ship in Viking’s fleet.
