1. Tag: St. Petersburg

Zdrastvutye! Welcome to Russia. Your adventure begins with an important welcome meeting at 6 pm. Truly one of Europe's finest cities – baroque European architecture combined with the opulent palaces of Russian royalty – St Petersburg was built by the Russian tsar Peter the Great and his legacy will clearly be felt as you explore its mysterious streets and visit its renowned palaces and museums.

Special Information: It’s very important that you attend the welcome meeting as we will be collecting insurance details and next of kin information at this time. If you are going to be late please let your travel agent or hotel reception know. Ask reception or look for a note in the lobby for more information on where the meeting will take place. Please have two copies of your passport, visa and migration cards ready. One will be collected by your leader, the other is for you to keep on you at all times whilst on this trip.

2. Tag: St. Petersburg

Spend the day exploring St Petersburg using the great public transport, and on foot crossing its many rivers and canals. Perhaps enjoy incredible views across the city from the colonnade at St Isaac’s Cathedral, or walk along Nevsky Prospekt – St Petersburg’s main street. Head down to Aleksandr Nevsky Lavra where Russia's great musicians and writers like Tchaikovsky and Dostoyevsky are laid to rest in the cemetery or visit Peter the Great’s ghoulish collection of curiosities at the Kunstamera. The Hermitage Museum is one of the largest and oldest museums in the world with one of the world's premier art collections housed in this former imperial Winter Palace – a whole day could easily be spent wandering its halls. Otherwise, you could embark on a canal boat tour or take a look around Peterhof Park. Whatever you choose, the city is easy to get around and your leader can help you make the most of your free day. In the evening, visit a local home and have a tea party Russian-style. Not all family members speak English, but with your leader on hand to interpret and their warm hospitality, you'll be feeling like one of the family in no time. These families live in St Petersburg's communal apartments, which date from Soviet times. Such apartments and their way of living have ceased to exist in other Russian cities, but they are still common in St Petersburg. This is a truly unique local experience that you won't find anywhere else.

Special Information: For many travellers, the highlights of St Petersburg are the Hermitage Museum, Catherine's Palace in Pushkin and Peterhof Palace and Park. These places can get very popular with visitors and quite often have a very long queue. To avoid disappointment, we strongly advise you to book tickets to these sites in advance. Each place may take half a day to a full day visit depending on how long you'd prefer to spend in each place.

3. Tag: St. Petersburg - Nachtzug nach Moskau

Take a free morning in St Petersburg to explore what you may have missed in the previous couple of days, then in the early afternoon, take a high-speed train to Moscow (approximately 4 hours). You’ll then get on Moscow’s famed metro system to your hotel and arrive by early evening. Then, the night is all yours. Perhaps check out Red Square flooded in lights, or wander Arbat street – one of the mostly lively, interesting and oldest surviving streets in Moscow. If you missed the ballet or the opera in St Petersburg, why not check out a show here? If this interests you, it is highly recommended to book well in advance to secure a ticket.

Trains on this journey are simple but comfortable, with standards and age of the carriages varying from route to route. You’ll travel in 2nd class ("kupe") on this trip. There's a toilet/bathroom at the end of each carriage with a small sink and cold water, but no showers. An attendant is assigned to every carriage to look after your comfort and safety (although service standards can vary greatly!). Each compartment has four bunks with luggage storage space inside. Clean bedding is provided, although some travellers still prefer to bring their own sleeping sheet. There's hot water available for making instant meals, tea and coffee. Sometimes snacks and drinks are available for purchase on board and most trains also have a dining car, although often with a limited menu. Trains are generally heated but do not always offer air conditioning. The train can become very hot even in winter and the train attendants will often not allow the windows to be opened, so please pack clothing appropriate for the warmer conditions on these train journeys.

Special Information: It is highly recommended to see what's playing at the Bolshoi and Mariinsky well in advance, as it may be difficult to get tickets when you are there. If you are really keen on seeing a show, please check with your booking agent first and they can confirm the free times available for shows so you don't miss out on any included activities.

Unterkunft: Nachtzug

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück

4. Tag: Moskau

The great city of Moscow has survived centuries of revolution and seen Russia through some of its most turbulent years, all the way from the days of the tsars. This morning, head to iconic Red Square with a local guide. This beautiful cobbled city square is framed by St Basil’s Cathedral, the opulent GUM Department store, the imposing walls of the Kremlin and the fairy-tale building of the State Historical Museum. You’ll also visit Lenin’s Mausoleum with your group. Lenin was the initiator of the 1917 Russian revolution which ushered in the era of communism. The afternoon is free for you to continue to explore Russia’s capital. Perhaps you could step inside the colourful St Basil's Cathedral in Red Square. Legend has it that tsar, Ivan the Terrible, had the two architects blinded so that they couldn't build anything as beautiful. Alternatively, relive the nation's turbulent past at Victory Park, travel back to the beginnings of Russian art at the Tretyakov Gallery or do some souvenir shopping at the Izmailovo Markets. The best part is, it’s all up to you.

Special Information Please note that, on occasion, Lenin's Mausoleum and Red Square may be closed to the public during regular opening hours without prior warning.

This morning, continue to explore the city when you embark on a tour of the Kremlin grounds, which houses the oldest and most important churches in the country and where many tsars and tsarinas are laid to rest. You’ll also head inside the Armoury Museum which houses a glittering imperial collection of regalia and items once belonging to the world's richest monarchy, including Faberge eggs and ambassadorial gifts. With your free time this afternoon, you may want to go in search of the ornate metro stations that Moscow is so well known for, or simply head to a café and enjoy a relaxing afternoon over a coffee and a pechen'ye (biscuit).

Special Information: As Moscow's premier tourist attractions, tickets for the Kremlin and Armoury are in high demand, and the Moscow Tourism Administration sets strict quotas to control visitor numbers. Time in each area is also limited to 90 minutes, with any exceptions possibly resulting in the guide losing their license. While we appreciate that some travellers would like to spend longer in the Armoury Museum, we ask for your understanding that the guide is under pressure to keep to the schedule. The Diamond Fund isn't included in your tour, but after the Kremlin and Armoury there may be time to visit. Entrance tickets can be purchased in the ticket office at the Armoury. The Diamond Fund is open for visitors from 10am-1pm and from 2pm-4pm. On Thursday it is closed.

Later in the afternoon, continue your travel towards Siberia to the town of Yaroslavl, situated on the Volga River.

7-10. Tag: Fahrt mit der Transsibirischen Eisenbahn

Take some free time in Yaroslavl to walk along the Volga River and hop on the riverside tram, visit the Monastery of Transfiguration of the Saviour, the Annunciation Cathedral or the history museum. Spend some time today, also, to stock up on supplies for your mighty Trans-Siberian train journey. There is a dining cart on-board, however if there are specific things that you’d like, it is best to make sure you’ve got snacks and drinks for the long journey. Later in the afternoon, board your train for an adventure of a lifetime. You’ll be passing through vast stretches of Russia’s countryside, and reliving the idea of slow travel – so get ready to sit back and relax on one of the most famous train journeys in the world.

Special Information: Trains on this journey are simple but comfortable. There's a toilet/bathroom at the end of each carriage with a small sink and cold water. An attendant is assigned to every carriage to look after your comfort and safety, however please keep in mind that service standards can vary greatly.

11. Tag: Baikalsee

Your long rail journey finally brings you to the Siberian city of Irkutsk, and the gateway to Lake Baikal – the deepest and largest lake (by volume) in the world. On arrival, stop for breakfast before driving to your lakeside village by private minivan (approximately 2 hours). Bolshoye Goloustnoye sits in the delta of the Goloustnoye River, on the western edge of Lake Baikal. Here you’ll be hosted by some of the kindest and most hospitable people around – local Buryat (the ethnic group of the Lake Baikal area) friends in their guesthouse and home. Situated right in the centre of the village, you'll certainly get to experience typical Russian rural life here. Slough away the grit of your long train journey in the family's backyard banya – the Russian version of a sauna. Locals swear by the cleansing, healing and meditative properties of having a steam and a wash in the banya, and it can also be quite the social occasion! Make sure to avail yourself of some birch twigs and slap yourself (and others!) over the shoulders for a traditional Siberian 'massage' to get the true banya experience.

Special Information: Please note that the accommodation tonight is basic and multi share, with no running water and has outside toilets. It is cosy and comfortable with basic facilities. We like to think stays like this put the ‘adventure’ in adventure travel!

Unterkunft: Gastfamilie

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

12. Tag: Baikalsee

Enjoy your surroundings today explore the beautiful Baikal nature. There are options for swimming in the lake or river or taking a boat trip along the shore. You can take a short hike up a nearby mountain for epic views of the lake and the village, then hire some bikes to explore further afield. The lake is so flat that you may hardly be able to make out the horizon in the distance. In the village cows roam freely, contained only by the fences keeping them out of the village's produce gardens. The houses themselves are bright examples of 'Siberian Lace' – decorative carved wooden window fixtures that keep evil spirits from entering homes. Each day you’ll be treated to delicious, hearty Siberian home cooking, all made from fresh local produce.

Optional Activities:
Lake Baikal Bike Hire (per hour) - RUB250
Lake Baikal Boat trip - RUB6000

Unterkunft: Gastfamilie

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

13. Tag: Irkutsk

Return to Irkutsk today (approximately 2 hours). Once a boom town of exiles and gold merchants, Irkutsk suffered under a regime that brought Soviet architecture and communist propaganda to its streets. Fortunately, the sophisticated atmosphere it once offered is not totally lost, and Irkutsk remains a fascinating city. Some parts of town are still lined with traditional houses and the old homes of liberal aristocrats exiled from Moscow early in the 19th century. Visit the Angara Icebreaker Museum – a unique piece of engineering and a key part of the history of the Trans-Siberian Railway. Walking through the city, see some of the original wooden residences and stop off at the Central Market to taste some of the amazing range of local produce for sale, and to stock up on supplies for the next train journey tomorrow.

Special Information: Please note that the Angara Icebreaker Museum replaces our previously included of the House Museum of Maria Volkonskaya (Decembrists Museum) due to the museum being currently unable to accommodate foreign tour groups.

Enthaltene Aktivitäten:
Irkutsk Angara Icebreaker Museum

Unterkunft: Mittelklasse-Hotel

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück

14. Tag: Transmongolische Eisenbahn

Back on the rails early morning today as you travel the Trans-Mongolian Railway for your overnight train trip (approximately 27 hours) into Mongolia. During the journey you’ll cross the border from Russia (Naushki) into Mongolia (Sukhbaatar) at night.

Special Information: This train is the most basic on our journey and a restaurant car is not always provided so we recommend bringing some supplies with you for your meals. There's only one train from Irkutsk to Ulaanbaatar that departs daily – other faster trains only depart once a week. We take the daily train to ensure we're able to offer this trip at regular, set departures without the need to change the itinerary each time.

During the journey you’ll cross the border from Russia (Naushki) into Mongolia (Sukhbaatar). There's a long wait at the border towns while passports are processed, and customs complete their checks, and you’ll also wait for the engine to re-join the train to take you on your way. It can sometimes be a long, hot and frustrating day, so a healthy dose of patience and understanding is recommended. After everything is finally completed, you’ll be rewarded with the magical landscapes of Mongolia.

Unterkunft: Nachtzug

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück

15. Tag: Ulaanbaatar

Crammed between the superpowers of Russia and China, the independent nation of Mongolia is a truly adventurous destination. The capital, Ulaanbaatar (affectionately known as UB), is a city where you’ll find elderly Mongolians in traditional dress, business suit-clad entrepreneurs and young monks. Arrive early in the morning in Ulaanbaatar and transfer to the hotel. Drop your luggage then venture out into the city. Enjoy a morning tour of Ulaanbaatar and the surrounding area. Visit Mongolia’s largest and most important active monastery, the lively Gandan Khiid. Here you'll learn about the main religion of Mongolia – Tibetan Buddhism. Then look out across the city from the top of Zaisan Hill then before exploring the range of fascinating artefacts housed in the Winter Palace Museum of Bogd Khan.
In the afternoon, perhaps explore one of the city's many museums to learn about the country's turbulent history, including the reign of the most famous of Mongolian historical figures – the feared and respected Genghis Khan.

16. Tag: Terelj Nationalpark

Travel to Terelj National Park by private van (approximately 1.5 hours). With rolling meadows dotted with munching yaks, forested hills, and jagged rock formations, this is the perfect place to take in Mongolia's natural beauty. A local guide will share some insight into Mongolian customs and culture with you, as well as lead you on a hike to a local Buddhist retreat. In Terelj, you’ll stay in traditional lodging at a holiday ger camp. In the colder months you might want to stoke up the stove in the centre of the ger – you'll be toasty warm in no time! Tonight, get involved in making your own dinner by learning to cook buuz – traditional Mongolian dumplings. Take in the wonderful views across the gers and rocky escarpment as you experience a memorable Mongolian sunset.

Special Information: In Terelj, you’ll stay in a holiday ger camp (multi-share) with full board. You’ll share meals together in the dining quarters. Vegetarians can be catered for, although choices may be limited – please let us know if you have any specific dietary requirements at time of booking. The gers sleep up to four people with comfy beds and plenty of blankets. Bathroom facilities here are basic with no showers, but there are toilets and basins with cold water in a support building outside. Please note in the colder months when plumbing is no longer functional there will be no running water and an outdoor pit toilet will be used.

Unterkunft: Ger Camp

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

17. Tag: Ulaanbaatar

Return to the hotel in Ulaanbaatar today (approximately 1.5 hours). On the way back to UB, stop and visit the huge Genghis Khan Monument. Genghis Khan, the legendary horseman who conquered half the known world in the 13th century, can be viewed from miles away. You can climb up the structure and see the view from atop the horse. For the rest of your free time in UB you can explore the city, perhaps visiting Mongolia’s largest and most important active monastery, the lively Gandan Khiid, to learn about the main religion of Mongolia – Tibetan Buddhism. Perhaps look out over Ulaanbaatar from the top of Zaisan Hill or visit one of the city’s fascinating museums. At the Intellectual Museum you can learn about the history and culture of this intriguing country through puzzles, toys and magic tricks. In the evening, you may like to experience Mongolia’s rich artistic culture at a traditional throat and ‘long song’ performance or singers, musicians, dancers and contortionists.

Enthaltene Aktivitäten:
Chinggis Khan Monument

Unterkunft: Mittelklasse-Hotel

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück

18. Tag: Ulaanbaatar - Nachtzug nach Peking

Farewell Mongolia today as you travel from Mongolia to Beijing on the next section of your epic train ride. The overnight journey (approximately 30 hours) leaves early in the morning and includes a long stop at the Mongolia-China border where the train changes bogies (wheels) due to the different rail gauges. The train may have a basic restaurant car but it's advisable to stock up at the supermarket before leaving Ulaanbaatar. Say goodbye to the relative time warp of Mongolia, get comfortable and watch the scenery change from rolling green meadows to rocky desert, to the built-up modernity of the city.

Special Information: Please note that due to the high demand for train tickets from June-October and the fact that the train only runs once a week, some groups may need to depart Ulaanbaatar a day later and stay the extra night in Mongolia at the ger camp. The itinerary will be amended to fit in all of your included activities. For this reason, we also recommend either booking a late-night flight on Day 20, or better yet, plan to stay a few extra days in Beijing.

Unterkunft: Nachtzug

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück

19. Tag: Peking

Arrive in Beijing mid-afternoon and transfer to your hotel. The capital of the most populous country on earth, Beijing is quickly shedding its historical face in favour of modernity. However, there are still plenty of places to go that will give you a great insight into the nation's ancient past, as well as sights that showcase China's contemporary culture. After a quick freshen up at the hotel, get out onto the streets of Beijing. Perhaps head to Tiananmen Square – the symbolic centre of Chinese power. Framed by the Gate of Heavenly Peace with its Mao portrait, Mao's Mausoleum, the Great Hall of the People, and the National Museum, it's a place of pilgrimage for the Chinese tourists who consider it the heart of their nation. Here you can enter the imposing Forbidden City, former home to China's imperial rulers and filled with palaces, gardens and seemingly never-ending grand courtyards. Beijing is vast and overflowing with sights – with your hotel located centrally, a walk in any direction will unveil all sorts of wonderful surprises.

Optional Activities:

Beijing - Lama Temple - CNY30

20. Tag: Peking

There are no activities planned for the final day and you are able to depart the accommodation at any time. There's so much to see and do in Beijing that we highly recommend staying an extra few days. In this extra time, you could take a tour to the Great Wall, cycle around the city, visit the park surrounding the Temple of Heaven, or explore the beautiful Tibetan-style monastery of Yonghegong (the Lama Temple). Better yet, there are a range of Urban Adventures tours that take you to more of the sights without the hassle of having to organise yourself. Perhaps take a Beijing Foodie Walk, where you’ll spend the evening strolling through markets and local shops for some local Chinese snacks. See urbanadventures.com/destination/Beijing-tours for more information. If you would like to spend more time in Beijing, we’ll be happy to organise additional accommodation for you (subject to availability).

Tourstil
Unser Beststeller für Abenteuerdurstige und Erlebnishungrige. Vollgepackt mit Gänsehaut-Momenten und intensiven Begegnungen. Für alle, die die Welt so entdecken wollen, wie sie wirklich ist. Du möchtest Land und Leute richtig kennen lernen und jeden Tag spannende neue Erfahrungen machen? Dann ist dieser Reisestil genau die richtige Wahl. Ein abwechslungsreicher Mix aus im Preis eingeschlossenen und optionalen Aktivitäten. Es bleibt genügend Zeit zur freien Gestaltung. Individuelle Freiheit wird mit der Sicherheit und dem gemeinschaftlichen Erlebnis einer kleinen Gruppe kombiniert.
Die Übernachtungen sind vorwiegend in ausgewählten Mittelklasse-Hotels und landestypischen Gästehäusern, die von Einheimischen geführt werden. Einige Mahlzeiten sind bereits inkludiert. Die Beförderung ist eine Mischung aus privaten, öffentlichen und lokalen Transportmitteln. Die lokalen Transportmittel werden genutzt, um etwas Besonderes zu erleben. Das authentische Erleben der Region, Kultur und Menschen im besuchten Reiseland steht im Vordergrund.

An Bord der Transsibirischen Eisenbahn
Die Züge auf dieser Reise sind einfach, aber komfortabel. Wir reisen auf dieser Bahnreise von Peking nach Moskau in Wagen der 2. Klasse. Es gibt eine Toilette am Ende jedes Wagens, die mit einem kleinen Waschbecken und kaltem Wasser ausgestattet ist. Für jeden Zugwagen ist ein Begleiter zuständig, der sich um den Komfort und die Sicherheit der Reisegäste kümmert (obwohl die Servicestandards stark variieren können). Jedes Abteil verfügt über vier Kojen mit Gepäckablage. Bettwäsche wird zur Verfügung gestellt, obwohl einige Reisende es bevorzugen ihren Schlafsack mitzubringen. Es gibt heißes Wasser für die Zubereitung von Getränken oder Fertiggerichten, Tee und Kaffee. Manchmal sind Snacks und Getränke an Bord erhältlich und die meisten Züge haben auch einen Speisewagen, allerdings mit einer begrenzten Speisekarte. Die Züge sind in der Regel beheizt, aber die meisten bieten keine Klimaanlage. Die Temperatur im Zug kann auch im Winter sehr heiß werden, allerdings erlauben die Zugbegleiter nicht die Fenster nicht öffnen. Bitte packe daher auch leichte Kleidung ein, die für die wärmeren Bedingungen auf diesen Zugfahrten geeignet ist.

Die Nachtzüge sind einfach, aber komfortabel. Es gibt in jedem Wagon eine Toilette / Badezimmer und Abteile mit Kojen / Schlafliegen. Wir reisen in allen Nachtzügen in der 2. Klasse und die Unterbringung erfolgt in 4-Personen-Abteilen. Natürlich versuchen wir immer, dass unsere Gruppen zusammen in einem Wagen untergebracht sind, jedoch kann es vorkommen, dass die Gruppe aufgrund der Ticketverfügbarkeit in verschiedenen Abteilen und Waggons reist. Es kann auch vorkommen, dass sich einige Teilnehmer ein Abteil mit anderen nicht zu unserer Gruppe gehörenden Reisenden zu teilen hat. Bitte beachte, dass es NICHT möglich ist, in einem Abschnitt dieser Reise in ein Zugabteil höherer Klasse zu wechseln. In den Abteilen der Züge sind in der Regel keine Steckdosen verfügbar. Die einzige Steckdose, die gelegentlich zur Verfügung steht, ist eine im Flur für den gesamten Wagen. Jedoch kann nicht garantiert werden, dass diese ständig Strom führt oder vom Abteil aus zugänglich ist.

Besondere Information: Ein kurzes Wort zum Thema Trinken im Zug: Soziales Trinken ist in Zügen in Russland weit verbreitet und kann eine angenehme Art sein, Menschen vor Ort zu treffen und mit anderen Reisenden (in Maßen) zu interagieren. Während Alkohol oft im Zug gekauft werden kann, sollte Spirituosen (einschließlich Wodka) nur im Speisewagen konsumiert werden. Wir möchten natürlich, dass alle unsere Reisenden einen großartigen Urlaub haben, aber es ist wichtig, dass jeder den anderen Gruppenmitgliedern Respekt zollt. Viele der Einheimischen Mitreisenden nutzen den Zug als Transportmittel, um von ihrer Arbeitsstätte nach Hause zu reisen oder zur Arbeit zu kommen.

Hinweis zur Buchung
Bei Buchung benötigen wir eine Farbkopie des Reisepasses bzw. folgende Informationen von dir:
- Vollständiger Name laut Reisepass
