Sheep Lake Baikal - Trans-siberian Railway Journeys - On The Go Tours
Countryside Bliss

Lake Baikal

Located in eastern Siberia, Lake Baikal is the world’s deepest lake. In the summer it is a fantastic place to trek and camp as well as a very unique place to scuba dive- it is relatively unexplored so perfect any budding Jacques Cousteaus! Come winter when the deep snow has settled, the is winter wonderland is perfect for dog sledding, skiing, ice fishing and snow mobiling!

Ulaan Baatar Nighttime
Mongolia's Capital

Ulaan Baatar

Capital of Mongolia, Ulaan Bataar is a pulsating city of modern and traditional architecture. Located in the north of the country it is where most trips to Mongolia will start or end. With lots of monasteries and palaces to explore as well as modern bars and restaurants to enjoy – it is the perfect place to spend a few days whilst on your Trans-siberian adventure.

Europe & Asia


Located on the eastern side of the Middle Ural Mountains, Yekaterinburg is a colourful city with a somewhat tumultuous history. While a visit must be paid to Church on the Blood – where the family of Tsar Nicholas II was murdered, the city is also a centre for culture and arts with several fine museums and theatres. Yekaterinburg is also excellent for outdoor sports, like cross-country skiing in the winter months and trekking in the summer. For something truly unique, stand with your feet over the Europe/Asian border.

End of the line


As the eastern terminus of the Trans-Siberian Railway, if you are ending your journey here then you’ll want to head to the Sporivnaya Harbour for a stroll along the promenade – enjoy the fresh sea breeze and grab a bite to eat from a street food stall. The Central Square, is a good place to relax and people watch, plus you can also see a massive pair of memorial statues. For history buffs there are several interesting museums dotted round the city.
