Classic Original Trans-Siberian - Vladivostok to Moscow

The route from Vladivostok to Moscow has been connecting the Russian capital to the country’s far eastern corner since its completion in 1916.

As a result it attracted adventurers and writers, while today it appeals not only to train buffs but to historians and those who want to travel the “original” route. It’s also popular with those planning to journey on to Japan. You don’t pass through Mongolia on this route and nor do you stop in Siberian destinations such as Ekaterinburg, Irkutsk and Ulan-Uday, although we’ll be delighted to discuss the options for adding the latter to your experience.

Type: Small Group Tours

Extras

The journey you have chosen has some “extras” that are necessary and then “extras” that will enhance your trip. We cannot re-iterate too much that we pride ourselves on making the trip you have chosen the best it can be – so if we don’t mention something you want, ask us and we’ll try our best to make it happen! In return, we try to inform you about any great “extras” along the way, so that you have the chance to try them if you want! Visas are a necessary extra and needed for all the countries you travel through and the current costs and what is needed can be found under Visas.

Upgrading to 2- berth compartment

Upgrading to 2- berth compartment on the train is also an option, you will see under Prices. This service is becoming more popular every year and not helped by the train operators only confirming this request 30 days or less prior to your departure. We have however devised a workaround for this that’s proving very reliable. We request a 2-berth at the time of booking but if this comes back not possible we block out a 4-berth compartment for 2 person occupancy. The standard of these cabins remains the same, and you get the extra space and privacy one way or the other.

Departures on alternate days of the month.

Few rare exceptions – please confirm with us.
