The Trans-Siberian Railway reaches right across Asia, connecting Moscow with the Far East and cutting through the fascinating lands in between. Crossing a third of the globe, the Trans-Siberian Railway heads through the natural wonders of the Gobi Desert, the Ural Mountains and the grassy steppe of Mongolia. We appreciate that travelling within this region can be a little daunting and we pride ourselves in being able to offer you a worry free, enjoyable and authentic Trans-Siberian Railway adventure.
Encounter fascinating cultures as you travel, experiencing centuries-old customs and traditions as you journey across Asia. Visit Lake Baikal, the world's oldest and deepest body of fresh water, camp out in a traditional Mongolian ger in Terelj National Park, eat local food and watch local festivals like the Naadam festival during the summer months.
Our Trans-Siberian Railway journeys are semi-independent and not group tours, so you'll normally be travelling by yourself or as part of your own private group, we provide assistance at each stop en route. We organise all of the elements necessary to make your journey smooth and hassle free, from the train tickets and accommodation en route to the rail station transfers and optional sightseeing tours and excursions.
