About us

Steppenfuchs Reisen

Steppenfuchs Reisen is a tour operator specializing in individual group and motorcycle tours in Mongolia and Siberia. Experience Mongolia authentically with us. Steppenfuchs Reisen is a government-certified travel company in Mongolia, which means that Steppenfuchs Reisen meets the high requirements of the Ministry of Environment and Tourism. Steppenfuchs Reisen is authorized by the Ministry of Environment and Tourism with the license 401 “C” and 324 to offer tours for tourists in Mongolia as well as tours for tourists outside Mongolia. This ensures that our tours are of an international standard and that we operate properly according to the laws and Mongolian guidelines, as well as that Steppenfuchs Reisen provides the necessary social security and insurance for its employees. Furthermore, Steppenfuchs Reisen is a member of the Mongolian Tourism Association, as well as various other bilateral business organizations.

Steppenfuchs Reisen stands for an extra class of quality of the trips planned and carried out by us. Our guides and drivers are not beginners in their work, but can fall back on many years of experience, which our guests notice and appreciate very quickly. In the approach of our trips especially the guide is the ambassador of the Mongolian culture and you will very quickly, even if only for a limited time, become a part of this culture. That is our goal in the trips, that our guests are in the middle of it, rather than just on the outside.

The beginning

It all started in 1999 with a trip from Germany to Mongolia with my motorhome. At that time, the east was still a very unknown area for me. The trip was exciting, the country unknown and offered a lot of opportunities. In addition, the people in the country are extremely hospitable and I find the landscape of Mongolia extremely beautiful. I have also traveled around the world a lot before, mainly in Europe, Africa and Central Asia. During my travels I always had the idea to share my experiences and knowledge with other people. This thought, to become active as a tour operator, I postponed then again and again because I was of the opinion, my knowledge and my knowledge are not sufficient for it. Only after I visited Mongolia and there was almost no tour operator here, because everything was new and unknown, I decided to offer individual tours for Mongolia, China, and Russia. Since 1999 I have been conducting individual tours in Mongolia and now I can say that the “teething troubles” have been overcome. On the tours to the most remote areas I have also acquired the technical knowledge for conducting trips in sparsely populated areas. During my travels I have made many friends in Asia and in Russia. I also work closely with some of them in conducting the tours. This is necessary, as they know the areas we will take you to much better than I ever will. In the meantime, the one-man business has become a quite respectable small company, with several permanent employees who also work in the company outside the season. Of course, in the season, drivers and guides and other temporary staff join the team.

The team

The team of Steppenfuchs Reisen includes many employees, but in the main they are only employed by Steppenfuchs Reisen during the season. As a representative, only the employees who work with us throughout the year are listed here.

Furgon driver

The "Furgon" is the best choice for a vehicle in Mongolia by far. You will realize that very quickly. For the time of your Mongolia trip it becomes your home. The soul of the vehicle is the driver, who keeps the technology alive. At this point we cannot list all the drivers, but Steppenfuchs Reisen can rely on a large number of drivers who will bring you safely through Mongolia.

Jeep driver

The Russian Jeep UAZ is probably the most robust vehicle in Mongolia. For many years it has been used to travel to the remotest corners of the country. Simple construction, uncomplicated technology and maximum off-road capability, these are the hallmarks of the UAZ. This vehicle is suitable for small groups. The drivers at Steppenfuchs Reisen know their vehicle and the terrain very well and surprise our guests again and again with their good sense of orientation, which also works perfectly without GPS.

One of the backbone of Steppenfuchs Reisen are the tour guides. As "front man / woman", they implement what was planned by the office. They are the content ambassadors of Mongolia and Mongolian culture. On the road constantly striving to make the trip a success for you. Cooking, solving one or the other problem, organizing and interpreting of course. We cannot list all guides here.
