Why is a Trans-Siberian Railway tour one of the best ways to travel around Russia? 

Experience one of the great train journeys of the world as you travel across one-third of the planet, from the heart of Moscow to the Russian Far East. You'll definitely be needing some overnight stops to sight-see along the way, because the Trans Siberian Railway is the longest rail line in the world.

Spanning two continents, our Trans Siberian railway tours bring some of the most remote and exotic parts of Russia, Mongolia and China right to your window, from the comfort of your own cabin. From beautiful lakes to flourishing forests, panoramic plains and magnificent mountains, you'll get to experience the entirety of Eurasia's beauty in one spectacular trip!  

  • Journey along the longest railway in the world, the Trans Siberian Railway, which crosses the divide between Europe and Asia and passes through no less than eight different time zones.
  • Experience Russian, Mongolian and Chinese culture in a single train journey.
  • Marvel at the dramatic, ever-changing dramatic scenery of Europe's and Asia’s most superb landscapes. 
  • Travel to must-visit destinations such as the ancient Chinese provinces of Beijing, the serenely beautiful Lake Baikal and the unique Mongolian heritage of Ulaanbaatar.

The Trans Siberian Express ranks on just about every traveller’s bucket list. The world's most famous train journey should be up to of an unforgettable series of memories for you and your companions, and our guided Trans-Siberian tours will ensure your trip is the experience of a lifetime. 

Our Trans-Siberian and Trans-Mongolian railway tours give you a variety of options to suit your interests and travel comfortably with the changing seasons. For example, to see the countryside at its greenest, the best time to travel on the Trans-Siberian Railway is during summer, from May through to September. Yet, some say the best season to travel on the Trans-Siberian is in winter when the landscape transforms completely. As well as eerily bare sub-Arctic taiga, fields of glittering snow (as well as far fewer tourists!) between February and April you'll be able to ogle the incredible transparent ice of Lake Baikal. Traverse from one end of Russia to the other on the 9,289km Trans-Siberian Express tour from Moscow to Vladivostok on the Pacific coast. Alternatively, start in Moscow and take the connecting rail line through Mongolia to end in Beijing (or vice-versa) on our Trans-Mongolian Railway tours (total length, 7,621km). Either trip takes you across the forested ridges of the imposing Ural Mountains and includes an overnight stay on the shores of enchanting Lake Baikal.

Travel along the Trans Mongolian Express during the annual Naadam Festival and witness an ancient, wildly colourful sporting competition preserved by the Mongol warrior tradition. For those set on nothing less than luxury train travel in Russia, our first class Trans Siberian Railway tour with the Golden Eagle is limited to just 120 private tour passengers, promising fine dining, personalised service and comfortable ensuite cabins. With planned excursions at every stop along the route and a range of exciting optional activities, we have custom-created award-winning Trans Siberian tours and Trans Siberian railway itineraries.
