The Trans Siberian Railway tours

The great Trans Siberian railway is a network of routes spreading deep into the wilderness Russia, Mongolia and as far as China. In what was a monumental feat for its time, the railway tracks were laid down in some of the world’s most beautiful and remote landscapes, including thick forests, vast steppes and piercing mountains.
Contrary to what it is often referred to; as a single line, an “express”, this man-made wonder is made up of multiple experiences of different routes that traverse through many cultures and nations. These routes in-turn are run by many services and operators, from standard and freight trains to luxury ones specialised for tourists.

Trans Siberian railway trip across Russia
The initial purpose of Trans Siberian railway was to connect the capital of Russia, Moscow, to its far-eastern port city of Vladivostok. Built between 1891 and 1916, this is considered to be the classic Trans-Siberian experience, an essential journey for travellers wanting an insight into Russia as a whole. Familiarise yourself with Russian locals, culture and wilderness as you travel over 9,200km, spanning seven time zones.

Trans Siberian railway tour through Mongolia, and China
Another track, the Trans-Mongolian, propels you through three wildly different countries: Russia, Mongolia and China. Depending from where you set off, Beijing or Moscow, prepare yourself for a rare expedition across Siberia and ancient Asian cities such as Ulan Ude and Ulaan-Baatar.

Trans Siberian railway trips – Siberia, Mongolia and Into Manchuria
Referred to as the Trans-Manchurian, this route will take you through a good chunk of Siberia, cutting through the breathtaking grasslands of Mongolia and into Manchuria where you can visit the city of Harbin, a town with a peculiar mix of Asian and Russian people and rich culture.

Travel trans Siberian railway – Stone and Forests
Here is a unique adventure, the latest great project of the Trans-Siberian railway; the Baikal-Amur Mainline. It was completed in 1991 with construction starting and halting over a period of 50 years. This one is for enthusiasts, a thrilling ride into tunnels that cut through the mountainsides and dense forests stretching far into the horizon. It passes Lake Baikal at its northern most shores. This route may one day in the future be part of a bridge across the Bering Strait; the corridor separating Russia from Alaska.
