The Trans Siberian train journey has captured the imagination of travelers for decades. This superb itinerary combines the classic route from Beijing, with stopovers at many of the unique and exciting destinations en-route to Moscow. We begin in Beijing, where there is ample time to witness the iconic attractions of this great city, before continuing to the Mongolian capital of Ulaanbaatar. Our time on the Mongolian Steppe provides us with a taste of nomadic life as we stay in comfortable ger camps, travel across the vast grasslands and sample the warm hospitality of the local people. The next stage of our journey enters the heart of Siberia to Lake Baikal, the worlds deepest and largest freshwater lake. Finally, we head to the cities of Moscow, to soak up the immense history through visits to Red Square and the Kremlin, and then to beautiful St Petersburg to wander through the immense Hermitage.
