The Russia Explorer tour starts in Saint Petersburg and ends in Moscow. It is a cultural, religious and historic sites tour that takes 14 days taking you through Murmansk, Solovetsky Islands, Teriberka and 3 other destinations in Russia. Russia Explorer is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

It’s the multi-faceted culture Russia has to offer that makes it so appealing. Places like St. Petersburg or the cities of the Golden Ring boast so much in art and culture that it would take near decades to even loosely acquaint yourself with what they have to offer, yet the frosty reaches to the north tell different tales of old castles, derelict towns, prison camps and time-lost labyrinths. This trip takes you across a land shrouded in both magnificence and secrets as you explore the bustling architectural glory of St Petersburg, Yaroslavl and Moscow and right up to the Arctic treasures of Murmansk and the Solovetsky Islands.
