Trans-Siberian Railway Winter Adventure

Cost

from £3,270 pp

(ex international flights)

Duration

19 days

This Trans-Siberian Railway Winter tour is perfect for the adventurous traveller. It’s challenging and exciting, taking you across the breadth of Russia (the largest country in the world) and across several time zones. Stay in a combination of locally-owned hotels and the comfort of your train cabin along the way. The train leaves from Moscow, Russia's capital, so you will have the opportunity to explore this buzzing, beautiful city before you set off on your epic journey. For one week you will be on the train, whizzing through countless cities, towns and villages and witnessing the Taiga fully blanketed with snow. Then spend time in the Siberian part of Russia, getting to know the indigenous culture and experiencing the famous and magical Siberian winter. The final leg of your journey will take you to Vladivostok in the very east of Russia. A journey to rival all others!

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
