About MIR

Thank you for your interest in our company.

The MIR world centers around serving travelers with a thirst for less traveled and emerging destinations. For the past 35 years, the team at MIR has drawn on profound connections in the locales at the crossroads of Europe, Asia, and the Middle East to curate and spearhead immersive experiences for just such travelers. We’re driven by a conviction that international travel can bridge divides and be a force for peace (in fact our name means ‘peace’ in Russian and Ukrainian languages). It is our privilege to pave a path for transformative travel between East and West by connecting fellow explorers with the people and places in the less-explored destinations we serve – whether from Albania to Azerbaijan, Serbia to Saudi Arabia, Iran to Iraq, or Tibet to Turkmenistan.

MIR has twice been named one of National Geographic Adventure‘s “Best Adventure Travel Companies on Earth,” is a six-time recipient of Tours of a Lifetime awards, has won numerous awards for the MIR tour catalog and website, and is a preferred operator for museum, alumni and special interest organizations across the U.S., and a preferred ground operator for tour operators in Europe, North America, the U.K., Australia and New Zealand.

If you think you would be a good fit at MIR, we would like to hear from you.

  • "We have traveled to over 40 countries. Our experience with MIR was unique; this trip was the most enjoyable and stress-free traveling we have ever had. In 23 days of traveling, there was not a single misstep – something we have never experienced before. Traveling with MIR is very seductive and addictive."
