Is this trip for me? DIFFERENT. MEMORABLE. ENLIGHTENING.Disclaimer: if you're looking for a stock-standard whirl around Europe, ticking off mainstream attractions and paying for overpriced tourist traps - this trip is not for you. From Helsinki to Moscow, we're gonna uncover the off-the-beaten-track gems in Estonia's capital, discover the REAL side to St Petersburg with a local guide and delve deeper into Russia's historic core. All with a bunch of comrades just as stoked to be here as you are. Ready? We thought so.

“Amazing trip! We had a small group of only 17, which was a perfect size. Our trip leader, Diarmaid, was also full of great tips and suggestions of things to do. Russia was definitely a highlight, and just awesome to experience in winter.”
