Moscow and St Petersburg winter tour Russia Christmas New Years

Arriving in Moscow and St Petersburg in winter has been likened to stepping into a novel – a land of exotic fur hats and snow-dusted cathedral domes. This tour will take place between December 29 and 5 January to include an unforgettable New Year’s Eve in Moscow, one of the most exciting cities in the world to celebrate with the locals and “party like a Russian”! Or you can choose any other dates.

While in Moscow you’ll discover some of the city’s most iconic attractions and lesser known gems, including a guided tour of the Kremlin and a day excursion to opulent royal estate of Kolomenskoye. Next, we’ll travel by high-speed train to St Petersburg to experience the romance of one of the world’s most beautiful cities in dazzling white winter dress. Delve into the treasures of the Hermitage Museum (without the summer crowds!) and enjoy a traditional troika sleigh ride in Pavlovsk Park.
