The tour Trans Siberian Adventure Naadam Festival starts in Beijing and ends in Saint Petersburg. This is an adventure trip that takes 23 days. You will travel through Mongolia, China and Russia and visit Ger Camp, Irkutsk, Listvyanka and 4 other destinations. This is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

A spectacular train journey from Beijing to experience the wonders of Mongolia during Naadam Festival, Siberia, Moscow and St Petersburg. The Trans Siberian train journey has captured the imagination of travellers for many decades. This superb itinerary combines the classic train route with stopovers at many of the unique and exciting destinations en-route. Beginning in the Chinese capital Beijing there is ample time to witness the iconic attractions of this great city. Continuing to Ulaanbaatar, we experience the colourful Naadam Festival before heading to the Mongolian Steppe for a taste of nomadic life, staying in comfortable ger camps and experiencing the vast grasslands and the warm hospitality of the people with some 'Airag', the fermented mares milk which is a favourite of the Mongolians. The next stage of our train journey takes us to Irkutsk in the heart of Siberia. Lake Baikal is a highlight of this region, and we take time to explore the natural beauty of the surrounds. The final stage of our journey takes us to the cities of Moscow and St Petersburg where we soak up the immense history through visits to Red Square and the Kremlin in Moscow and the Hermitage in St Petersburg, as well as a multitude of lesser known sites which our Russian hosts will uncover.

“The leaders and support staff were amazing. They were completely in-tune to everyone in the group. All of them would check on us morning and night to make sure we were all doing ok especially as we climbed higher. They were also very well prepared with any medical services anyone on the trip needed. I felt completely safe the whole time. They were positive and encouraging the whole way and I felt like they did their best to make sure we all made it to the top.”

“I had wanted to visit the Simien mountains for a long time and would highly recommend this trip. There is a good balance between cultural activities (in Addis Ababa, Axum and Lalibella) and trekking. Do not under-estimate the trekking. It proved far more tiring than I expected. However, we were constantly rewarded with the views. The mountains are unlike anything I've seen before - think Grand Canyon and Monument Valley all rolled in to one big range, but greener.”
