TransSiberian

TRANSSIBERIAN CHALLENGE

TransSiberian route is on the bucket list of every committed tourist. Usually TransSiberian tour involves galloping major cities from Moscow to Vladivostok by train and visiting well-worn landmarks. However this gives a cotton-candy view of Russia. The hallmark of our unique tour is its active elements designed for young and middle-aged audience keeping up with the hype, especially travel bloggers and persons keen on total immersion into the culture and nature of the countries they travel to. Along with visiting historical and architectural monuments, traditional cultural centers and meeting local craftsmen, it includes hiking in the Ural with jeeping through Siberian forest and Baikal lake which are the unique clusters of the tour. Foreign tourists are hesitant to travel this route alone because of the lack of information in European languages and the difficulties in finding certified guides. The #TransSibChallenge offers a variety of cultural experiences оf your choice: kayaking through Saint-Petersburg's channels, Moscow highlights by bicycle, Siberian kitchen, of course the famous Baikal lake alternative and other city tours by locals. You will discover unusual Transsiberian railway which includes nature, village life, local cuisine workshops, meeting craftsmen, spending nights at local people's houses and many other activities.
