Details

The direction of this itinerary is Eastward (West to East), St Petersburg TO Vladivostok.

Heading east from Moscow, you will pass through the Ural Mountains and notice the changes as you are now in Asia, rather than in Europe. The Trans Siberian route opens up great visual swathes of Siberia. You will see and thus feel, the immensity of this geographic region, passing sparsely populated village enclaves, interspersed with an occasional large city.

The itinerary detailed here uses the standard trains and is for more independent travellers. If you prefer different levels of travel comfort, do consider our luxury private train options.

We have been operating a wide variety of independent programmes and tours into Russia since 1989, starting with university language study groups. As Russia opened up we introduced Trans Siberian train journeys at a real price. We were the first to introduce homestay accommodation. Others were paying high costs while our clients were paying low cost! Same bed, same cabin!

All this experience results in

  • great trips
  • up to date information
  • reliable partners at all stops means safety for you
  • accountability

You will also notice our name is referenced in most of the guidebooks relating to these areas. In fact we have helped many of the Lonely Planet guidebook authors travel around Russia.
