Extended Moscow to Beijing Trans-Siberian Railway - fixed departures

16 Day Tour, from £2095 per person

Take the legendary Trans-Siberian and Trans-Mongolian Railways from Russia to Beijing via serene Lake Baikal and the wild expanses of Mongolia. This extended tour includes a stop in the historic city of Ekaterinburg, where in 1918 Tsar Nicholas II, his wife Alexandra and five children were murdered by the Bolsheviks which signalled the final chapter of the Romanov dynasty which had ruled Russia for over 300 years. The magnificent Cathedral on the Blood now stands where the family met their end and contains several fascinating monuments to the Romanovs.

Continue on to majestic Lake Baikal, the world's deepest lake, and through Mongolia for the chance to sample the day-to-day life of a typical nomad with a stay in a traditional ger gamp, before finishing the once-in-a-lifetime journey in Beijing.
