Once in your lifetime…

In this blog we explore the journey of the Trans-Siberian Railway through Russia and China.

Board the Trans-Siberian Railway

For an adventure unlike any other, board the Trans-Siberian Railway and journey across two continents from Moscow to Beijing.

When the Trans-Siberian Railway was completed in 1904, it was the longest single railway in the world. Today, it still holds that title, spanning almost 8,000 miles and crossing several time zones.

Travellers who embark on this epic rail trip experience something truly extraordinary. What other journey takes you from the onion domes of Moscow’s Red Square to the Great Wall of China, via the forests of Siberia, the grass plains of Mongolia and the sweeping Gobi Desert?

Epic sights along the way include the historic cities of Kazan and Ekaterinburg, and vast Lake Baikal, the largest freshwater lake in the world. Epic experiences include staying in a traditional Mongolian ger, a circular felt tent heated by a wood-burning stove!

This is what adventure travel is all about – stepping outside your comfort zone and exploring countries and cultures that are very different to your own. You’ll come home with incredible stories, photographs and memories, as well as a real sense of achievement for the adventure you’ve had.
