Tailored Trans-Siberian journey with scheduled Russian trains

Create your own Trans-Siberian itinerary

From Moscow to the Far East, the only true protagonist of the trip is the landscape, as if the rails, the isbas (the wooden houses that dot the plain, the only traces of human labor), will be cancelled in the natural and archaic landscape unlimited. From the mountains of the Urals, passing between the taiga and the steppe to Lake Baikal, the "Siberian sea" as large as Belgium. A landscape that turns into color: the red of the clay cliffs, the green of the pine and fir forests and the white-green of the birch forests  that in autumn become bronze, the blue of the water that, always New and different, you can admire from the window during long train trips. A classic itinerary to discover the most incredible Siberia.

 

The trains of the Trans-Siberian line depart from Moscow on alternate days and allow you to travel in first class (2 berths) or in second class (4 berths) together with the numerous local passengers traveling along this immense road: a whole world made up of people and different faces of Russians, Asians, Caucasians, Mongols, Chinese.

 

This "trip within a trip" is suggested to those who can move independently and face a long road with patience, waiting, curiosity and the preparation of a true explorer. We can reserve your Trans-Siberian for you, with your chosen stops, at your favorite times.

Special rates are available for travel agencies and tour operators.
