PURE CULTURAL ADVENTURES

Our mission is to offer travelers unrivaled
savings at a selection of hand-picked
destinations.

Based upon 20+ years of 100s of expeditions for film, tourism and social economic development works (in Mongolia and around the world) – GER to GER TEAM decided to spearhead an “Open Ocean Approach” towards respectfully exploring cultures and remote geographies as a humanitarian. It’s our mission to bring about a holistic methodology towards sustainable social economic development as culturally sensitive ethnographic explorers, cultural ambassadors and social economic developers. GER to GER offers a professional “humanitarian” training that includes: history, cross-cultural comprehension, ethnography, a variety of risk mitigation assessments, health, safety, navigation, language, etc.; in short, its a great refresher for experienced professionals and a fantastically intense learning curve for beginners.

IT’S OUR PASSION THAT OPENS THE DOOR of MONGOLIA

“Yes, statistically GER to GER has a well-proven history as one of the world’s premiere examples of community based tourism, destination development and ecotravel with all the due diligences, recognitions, honors, awards and financial records to prove we lead the way in ‘giving back’ to rural nomadic tribes and communities. However, today we would like to express something quite different – we would like to highlight “our passion” as humanitarian explorers.

Owing to our humanitarian/community based tourism approach and countless sacrifices over the last decade, one can only imagine our endeavors have been full of adventures and countless learning experiences. GER to GER as a ‘social enterprise’ has expanded its operations towards fostering rural inhabitants and nomadic tribes to become equal stakeholders by proactively developing their capacities and skills in community based ecotourism; thanks to the initial in kind-support of the Swiss Agency for International Development/Cooperation and USAID. Today, locals are becoming the protagonists of social economic development and in conservation/environmental initiatives. After a decade of successful operations, GER to GER has become one of the world’s longest lasting testaments of how Responsible Tourism can be developed, operated and sustained 100% by local inhabitants.

After 10+ years, our nomadic tribes and rural communities throughout Mongolia have learned a lot and are starting to provide unmatched “non-genetically modified” travel expedition services that are truly inherent of Mongolia’s nomadic lifestyles. GER to GER is truly a successful union of Mongolia’s ancient ways of exploration and today’s desire for more socially and economically responsible active adventure travel and exploration.

We kindly desire to invite you all to experience both styles of travel from our humble Humanitarian Trips to full-fledge expedition style trips that offer the best of the both worlds; rural communities and the highlights of Mongolia in comfort.”
