Experience the Trans-Siberian Railway
The famous Trans Siberian Railway connects Moscow with the Far East, crossing a third of the globe, through the vast Russian province of Siberia. Travelling over the rugged Ural Mountains and along the shore of beautiful Lake Baikal, the Trans Siberian line continues on to the port city of Vladivostok, while the Trans Mongolian line branches off at Ulan Ude, travelling across the grassy steppe of Mongolia and the vast Gobi Desert, to Beijing. Available throughout 2021 and 2022, our adventures are inclusive of rail travel, accommodation and rail station transfers.Read More
