Starting among western Russia’s deep forests and cities dating from the medieval era, the Trans-Siberian Express carries you through the stunning Ural Mountains that separate European and Asian Russia, and on past the outpost cities of Siberia (and the spectacular Lake Baikal) ending in either Vladivostok, or via alternate routes, in the Chinese capital of Beijing. This trip on the world’s longest railway promises a unique experience you’ll never forget, so choose a package below or contact us to begin a Trans-Siberian railway adventure of your own.
Taking some 8 days to complete (assuming you make no overnight stops along the way), the 9259-km/6753-mile Trans-Siberian Railway connects Moscow with the Pacific port city of Vladivostok. This journey across Russia crosses 7 times zones and passes through a number of cities including Yekaterinburg, Irkutsk, Omsk, Chelyabinsk, Novosibirsk, Ulan-Ude, Chita, Khabarovsk, and Blagoveshchensk. Additionally, there are two branch routes of interest:
The Trans-Mongolian route is an offshoot of the Trans-Siberian Railway built from 1940 to 1956. The route turns southward from Ulan-Ude (just east of Lake Baikal), passing through Mongolia and its Gobi Desert before reaching Beijing and cutting the distance between Moscow and the Chinese capital to a mere 7867 km.
The 9001 km Trans-Manchurian Moscow-Beijing route follows the path of the Trans-Siberian route all the way to Tarskaya, roughly 300 miles east of Lake Baikal. The route then diverts toward the border near the town of Zabaikalsk and crosses into northern China.
This tour is a great choice for seeing the highlights of Russia, Mongolia and China. From Golden-Domed Moscow you will continue on to Irkutsk and visit beautiful Lake Baikal. Mongolia will greet you with its endless steppes and the Gobi Desert. Finally, you will reach China and visit the magnificent Great Wall, Ming Tombs and Forbidden city.
This trip lasts for 2 weeks and passes through 6 fascinating cities. Starting in Vladivostok with its harbour of the Golden Horn and passing through the Buddhist city of Ulan-Ude, then to Irkutsk - home of magnificent Lake Baikal and onto Novosibirsk and Yekaterinburg - very dynamic Siberian cities, and finally ending in golden-domed Moscow.
This tour covers the highlights of the Trans-Siberian Railway - including all 5 major cities along its route. You will admire cultural masterpieces in Beijing, learn about nomadic life in Mongolia, see amazing Lake Baikal in Irkutsk, learn about the fate of the Last Tsar in Yekaterinburg, and visit Russia's energetic capital Moscow.
This exciting Trans-Siberian tour takes you to three countries - Russia, Mongolia and China. From Moscow you will proceed to the Siberian cities of Yekaterinburg, Novosibirsk and Irkutsk, close to Lake Baikal. Then you will cross Mongolia with its endless steppes and the Goby Desert, and finally arrive in China with the Great Wall and more.
The tour is a great opportunity to visit three countries on one trip. You will be delighted with the capital of Russia, see the border of Europe and Asia in Yekaterinburg, admire beautiful nature in Krasnoyarsk, see the world's largest lake Baikal, steppes of Mongolia and China's cultural heritage.
This is our shortest version of our Trans Siberian railroad tours but it covers some of the most interesting cities. The trip begins in Moscow, the capital of Russia, then continues on to Yekaterinburg, located in the Ural Mountains and at the edge of Siberia. The tour ends on the shores of Lake Baikal.
This tour will take you along the full route of the Trans-Siberian railway to 3 of Russia's most interesting cities - Moscow with stunning Red Square, the Kremlin and Cathedrals, Irkutsk located in the heart of Siberia and home to the great Lake Baikal and Vladivostok - the King of the East with its harbor of the Golden Horn and Amursky Bay on the Pacific Ocean.
On this great Eurasian journey from West to East you will cover the entire route of the Trans-Siberian Railway, visiting four major cities along the way: Russia's capital Moscow, Yekaterinburg in the Ural Mountains, Irkutsk including incredible Lake Baikal, and finally Vladivostok on the Pacific Ocean, at the very edge of Russia.
