Train Journey Through a Winter Wonderland


Travelling during winter is a magical experience. Snowy fields, icicles on trees, cozy lodges. Everything becomes whimsical, and the stress of reality back home melts away. Cities, towns and nature are transformed when it snows, and the ideal winter holiday should encompass snow of every kind. Explore our assortment of winter train travel packages to find your perfect frosty adventure.

Russia in the Snow


Russia's most beautiful monuments come alive in the sub-zero temperatures of the snowy season. You'll soon realize an extra-large coat is a small price to pay for the lack of crowds, cozy atmosphere and picturesque settings that Russia becomes in winter. Russia in winter conjures images of barren snowfields and day-long blizzards for many people – and sure, if you venture far enough into the wilderness, you may freeze. But choose to join civilization, a hearth of warmth and holiday cheer will be waiting for you. Outdoor activities like sledding, ice skating and skiing are popular amongst locals and tourists alike. Most of our winter tours also include dog sledding, a truly unique experience that will leave you feeling like you're in a fairy-tale.


When you need to warm up, Russia's countless museums and galleries are the perfect places to get feeling back in your fingers while soaking up local culture and knowledge.


Trans-Siberian Railway – the perfect winter voyage


The best way to travel through Russia during winter is by taking a ride on the Trans-Siberian Railway. Wintertime transforms familiar landscapes, and there's no better way to see Russia's wild side while staying warm. The train stops at all the major destinations across Russia, and our flexible travel packages mean that you can get out and explore or remain in the warmth as you please. Ask us about booking a private first-class cabin, or a private tour, if you're after the full luxury Russian experience.


A Holiday Season You'll Never Forget


Russians take the holiday season very seriously, and our customized trips ensure that you'll have every chance to make the most of the festivities. Russia follows Christmas according to the Julian calendar – on January 7. And while it's an aptly celebrated day, the more extensive festivities are on New Year's Eve, December 31. Our tours celebrate Christmas Day on December 25, plus an authentic Russian Christmas on January 7 on extended trips. Choose from our 5+ tours through Russia over Christmas and New Year's, including:

➤22 days from Beijing to St Petersburg

➤21 days from St Petersburg to Vladivostok

➤16 days from Ulaanbaatar to Moscow
