One of MIR’s Most Why end mightd Tour Managers Recommends Travel to These Four Remote Destinations in 2019

2019 promises to be an exciting travel year for long-time tour manager Michel Behar. His plans include leading four wildly different MIR tours to wildly different destinations.

One takes intrepid travelers to an isolated village in western Mongolia, where the age-old art of hunting with eagles is experiencing a revival. Another is an exploration of the remote mountainous North Caucasus region of Russia – complex, hospitable, and spectacular. Two others venture beyond the oases of Central Asia into the faraway corners where travelers are fewer and farther between. Michel is looking forward to these tours and here he tells us one of the many reasons he’s excited about each one. Read More
