The Trans-Siberian Railway
The world longest (9288 km) Trans-Siberian Railway stretches from Moscow to Vladivostok across almost all Eurasia through vast spaces of European Russia, Siberia and Far East. Comfortable sleeper trains cover the distance in 6-7 days but it is worth to stop off at some cities on the route. It makes the trip less tiresome and grants much more impressions. The most popular cities are Ekaterinburg, Irkutsk (with the world famous Baikal Lake nearby), Ulan-Ude. Each of them is wonderful on its own way.
The Trans-Mongolian and the Trans-Manchurian railways branch off the Trans-Siberian to the South and connect it with Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia, Harbin and Beijing in China, Pyongyang in North Korea.
It means that you may begin your Trans-Siberian on-land trip in some European country and finish it in Mongolia, China, North Korea or Japan.
We offer traveling by scheduled trains, not by private ones. Private trains are more expensive and they fasten you to their fixed itinerary. Scheduled trains grant maximal flexibility in itineraries. You may choose any city to stop off, any sight to visit.
You should only book with us the whole itinerary in advance to guarantee proper train tickets, accommodations and excursions. Some examples of our standard Trans-Siberian tours are adduced below. You may book them as they are or create your own trip with a help of our skilled managers. Please BOOK EARLY because train tickets are in deficiency in a hot season.
