Russia has appeal not only for devotees of culture and art, but also for the true explorer. Incredibly diverse and with a colourful history, this immense and largely unvisited nation offers something for every traveller.

The largest country on earth, Russia spans 11 time zones, two continents and has the largest freshwater lake in the world. Prepare to be astonished by St. Petersburg and its palaces with their feast of imperial history and art treasures charting the excesses of the Russian court in the 18th and 19th centuries. Moscow is equally impressive, with its Armoury Museum showcasing spectacular royal gifts and the priceless regalia of the Tsars and Tsarinas.

Fiona’s excellent first-hand knowledge of the country enables us to plan superb itineraries ranging from city breaks and cities of the Golden Ring, to the legendary Trans-Siberian train journey. It’s an unforgettable experience, taking you across vast forests and endless steppes to the magical land of Kamchatka. There, in an extraordinary landscape of volcanoes, towering mountains and tundra, you will find true nature abounding with fish and wildlife.
