No matter where in the region you’d like to go, we have a tour for you, from Moscow and St. Petersburg city breaks, to leisurely Russian river cruises. If you’re yearning to explore, we can lead you along the Golden Ring or take you on a cross-continental Trans-Siberian rail journey. For adrenaline junkies we also organise adventure holidays in Russia, such as climbing Mount Elbrus, trekking in Kamchatka, horse-riding in the Altai Mountains and more.
 
We’re also a special event specialist, so whether you want to attend the MAKS International Aerospace Show or the 2018 FIFA World Cup, we can make it happen.
