For travellers who recognise it’s the journey, not just the destination that matters, a Regent Holidays railway holiday cannot be beaten. Over a century old, the epic Trans-Siberian Railway stretches over 9000km from Moscow to the Russian east coast, and a train trip through deepest Siberia allows travellers to experience Russia beyond Moscow and St Petersburg. Trundling through picturesque landscapes, stop to take a dip in the icy waters of Lake Baikal, visit historic cities like Yekaterinburg and opt to continue through Mongolia or China.
Speak to a Regent Holidays Russia Explorer about booking your ticket aboard the lesser-known Baikal-Amur Mainline (BAM Railway) for a holiday experience that embodies the concept of ‘alternative travel’. Far from the beaten track, this section of railroad branches away from the true Trans-Siberian line to head deeper into the Russian Far East.
