The vastness of Russia becomes more and more apparent as days go by on the train.

T Watkins
Our Russian river cruises offer a relaxing way to see the birch tree forests and pastoral countyside between Moscow and St Petersburg. It's said that Russia's villages are the heart of the country and our cruises will let you take a picnic in some of the prettiest riverfront towns, where wooden houses and the onion domes of the Orthodox church have stood for centuries. 

Russian river cruises in the countryside

The Shashkov and Fedin river cruises will introduce you to St Petersburg and Moscow, but allow plenty of time to visit fascinating and lesser known riverside towns and islands. You'll stay aboard the boat, and excursions and evening activities are all included - perfect if you don't want the stress of trying to work out your own schedule.
 
These boats have become increasingly popular so be sure to book early to avoid disappointment. You can start your Russia river tour in either Moscow or St Petersburg, and the boats visit the same locations which ever direction they are sailing. 

River cruises in Russia with city style

However, if you prefer a combination of downtown, luxury hotels in Moscow and St Petersburg with a cruise through the countryside in between, then the Volga Dream is for you.
 
Your trip will start and with five-star stays in the best Moscow and St Petersburg hotels, giving you time to explore the grand majesty of the Kremlin and Red Square as well as the opulent palaces in St Petersburg. The cruise itself is equally five-star. The Volga Dream boat has rooms that are a match for your favourite luxury hotel - you'll find comfortable beds, large picture windows and all the other little extras you'd expect from a five-star stay. What better way to pass the time between ports than to curl up in a leather armchair with a good book from the well stocked library on the Volga Dream, or take part in a Russian tea ceremony or cooking class on board.
