HIGHLIGHTS
  • Experience one of the most legendary bucketlist journeys ever in the magic of the Russian winter
  • A sobering but essential excursion to the Romanov family resting place shines light on one of the Russian Revolution’s major tragedies
  • Encounter a way of life that has changed little since the 18th century on a visit to the Old Believers Village near Ulan Ude
  • Lake Baikal is astounding at any time of year, but in winter it’s nextlevel. Marvel at its sheer size (like sea) and enjoy the tranquility of the lake under winter sunshine.
The Winter Trans-Siberian Adventure tour starts in Moscow and ends in Vladivostok. It is a train trip that takes 15 days taking you through Yekaterinburg, Vladivostok and Ulan Ude in Russia. Winter Trans-Siberian Adventure is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Tibet may have the highest, and Australia and Switzerland the steepest, but Russia most certainly takes the prize when it comes to sheer depth of history and legend in a train trip. Embark on a beautiful winter adventure on the great Trans-Siberian Railway, one of the great journeys of modern times. Travelling in winter adds a dramatic dimension to Russia’s vast landscapes, as Lake Baikal shimmers with a deep speckled blue, the wooden Romanov monasteries outside Yekaterinburg take on a sombre, snowy profile, and the time-capsule scenes of the Old Believers village near Ulan Ude are given a fairy-tale dusting. With the must-see historical sites of Moscow revealed before you set off, and the spirit of the new year alive throughout, this Tran-Siberian itinerary pulls out all the stops for an unforgettable expedition.

“The Best of Chile trip was one of the most amazing trips we've ever taken! We visited breath-taking places, experienced the local culture, met some of the friendliest people and enjoyed the unique cuisine that Chile had to offer. We would definitely come back!”

“Full intinerary with touristy and off the beaten paths places.
Plenty to see and greatly organized.
Incredible guide who took us through a lot of the culture, history and day-to-day of this unique country.
Some infrastructure limitations, but nothing too bad when it comes to these unusual territories.”
