With so many waterways and historic routes to discover, cruising in Russia suits both the luxury traveller and the intrepid adventurer alike. Imagine the romantic affair of a Russian river cruise, taking in the scenic rural townships along the mighty Volga River. Or hit the high seas on an expedition-style journey in the Arctic or the Russian far east, exploring far-flung island outposts and oceans teeming with wildlife. Whether relaxed comfort or adventure happens to float your boat, there's a Russian cruise to suit your style.   Russia Cruises Highlights:  
  • Travel along the longest river in Europe, the mighty Volga River, as you pass the through picturesque countrysides and timeless townships of the Golden Ring
  • Stroll through the UNESCO listed medieval villages of Mother Russia, with their ancient wooden houses and windmills and breathtaking churches 
  • Experience spectacular landscape views, pristine tundra, massive volcanoes, boiling lakes and azure-blue lagoons while exploring the Kuril Islands     
  • Get up close and personal with the native wildlife, including polar bears, walruses, arctic foxes, bowhead whales, whiskered auklets, steller sea lions and many more in the Russian Far East
  • Conquer the North Pole aboard the most powerful nuclear icebreaker ever built and be the envy of every traveller

Only after experiencing one of our Russia cruises will you truly gain an understanding of the unique and often overlooked Russian soul and spirit.

Embark on a journey from mighty Moscow, past breathtaking Russian countrysides and timeless townships of the Golden Ring, to the glittering metropolis of St Petersburg, otherwise known as the ‘Venice of the North’ due to its elegant buildings, canals and bridges. Learn about the local legends, culture, folklore, and history of ancient Russian cities that to this day, still conjure up Russia’s mysterious past.

Beyond the major cities of Moscow and St. Petersburg lie an abundance of diverse wildlife and spectacular natural landscapes. Marvel at towering volcanoes, pristine tundras and a multitude of rare bird species as our expedition takes you across the Pacific Ocean to the Kuril Islands. Feel the isolation begin to sink in as you make your way across the icy, wildlife-rich Barents Sea to the Russian High Arctic, where polar bears, seals, walruses and the elusive bowhead whale can be spotted. For those with a knack for adventure, Wrangel Island will certainly deliver.

 

Just off the northeast coast of Siberia, get up close and personal with the wild denizens of the Arctic, virtually undisturbed by human interference, and in numbers that will simply astound you. Finally, tick off the ultimate bucket list experience of literally standing at the top of the world as you embark on a nuclear-powered icebreaker for a roundtrip voyage to the geographic North Pole, smashing through the frozen Arctic Ocean along the way.
