PREMIUM SMALL-GROUP COACH TOURING



MONGOLIA & TRANS-SIBERIAN TOUR
 

AN EPIC TRAIN JOURNEY TRAVERSING CHINA, MONGOLIA & RUSSIA



22 Days | 01 TO 22 SEPTEMBER 2018

BEIJING - TERELJ NATIONAL PARK - ULAANBAATAR - IRKUTSK - LISTVYANKA - YEKATERINBURG - MOSCOW - ST PETERSBURG
The Trans-Siberian train journey has captured the imagination of travellers for decades. This superb itinerary combines the classic Mongolian route from Beijing, with stopovers at many of the unique and exciting destinations enroute to St Petersburg. We begin in Beijing; where there is ample time to witness the iconic attractions of this great city, before continuing to the Mongolian capital of Ulaanbaatar. Our time on the Mongolian Steppe provides us with a taste of nomadic life as we stay in a comfortable ger camp, travel across the vast grasslands and sample the warm hospitality of the local people. The next stage of our journey enters the heart of Siberia to Lake Baikal, the world’s deepest and largest freshwater lake. Finally, we first head to the city of Moscow, to soak up the immense history through visits to Red Square and the Kremlin, and then to beautiful St Petersburg to wander through the vast Hermitage.
