Discover our Russia tours
Get under the skin of Russia with our small group tours. Join your local tour leader to explore Moscow’s fortified Kremlin and head to the Red Square to observe the colourful domes of Saint Basil’s Cathedral. Step back in time and take the Red Arrow Train to St. Petersburg to discover a plethora of historic treasures including the world-famous Heritage Museum, picturesque canals and European-inspired Baroque and Neoclassical architecture.
If you fancy getting off the beaten track, head into the countryside for a trip to the Golden Ring. Old Russian towns boast ornate monasteries with golden domes and colourful facades, and a trip to Sergiev Posad will reveal the source of traditional Matryoshka dolls. Or, for an action-packed winter wonderland adventure, travel to Karelia in winter to uncover frozen waterfalls, ride with huskies through the snow and visit a traditional rural settlement set deep in the heart of the wilderness.
