There are a lot of great ways to spend a day outside of Ulaanbaatar. First of all, most of the tours at the Gorkhi-Terelj National Park will take up an entire day, especially if you choose the horseback riding tour. Also the Hustai National Park is an all day excursion. Consider scheduling a tour of the Erdene Zuu Monastery, which is a must-see in central Mongolia. It is not just one building; rather it is an entire complex. It is located about 4 hours from Ulaanbaatar. Take a day and experience the Gobi Desert. There are a number of weekend or one-day tours available for those wanting to explore the desert. Another great way to spend a full day is with a whitewater rafting adventure down the Terelj River.
