With options for 1 day and 5/6 day tours from Lake Baikal from the Ural Mountains to the great Lena River, the sheer size of Siberia is hard to comprehend. Freezing in winter and stifling in summer, the remaining seasons transform this expanse into one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. This tour takes you on a romantic train ride on the Trans-Siberian express to Irkutsk, the nearest big city to glorious Lake Baikal, with options to explore further into the taiga (forest) and beyond.
See into the heart of Russia where local cultures retain their own sports, passions and languages, and where the emptiness of the valleys and their mysterious spaciousness will take you on a fascinating voyage of discovery.
The Trans-Siberian railway
The three day journey from Moscow to Irkutsk can be broken at several different cities en-route (Ekaterinburg, Krasnoyarsk, and Novosibirsk).
After a few days exploring Irkutsk, there are options either to continue east, or to take them more interesting route south through Mongolia and on to Beijing.
Consider stopping off at three other notable Siberian cities – Tomsk, Tobolsk and Ulan-Ude as you travel through the continent.
Enjoy one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world as you watch from the window – in late spring/early summer a profusion of wild flowers carpet every valley. Autumn turns the trees to amber and the undergrowth to red.
