The Bolshevik

Beijing to Moscow


If you want an iconic Trans Mongolian journey whilst watching your roubles then The Budgeting Bolshevik is the journey for you. Be prepared to travel in low season (that means less tourists) and in a lower grade of train compartment on the longest journey in order to take advantage of this money-saving adventure. It might be thrifty but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the good times!

The Ruski Huski

Moscow to Beijing


Think snow, big furry Moscow hats, temperatures well below zero, oh and probably some vodka too! The Ruski Huski is a special winter itinerary that apart from the usual basics also includes some added value winter activities such as dog sledding in Siberia and a Mongolian cookery class.

The Vodkatrain

St Petersburg to Beijing


This is the classic Trans Mongolian journey. Visit all the best places from Russia’s ‘Venice of the North’ through to electrifying Beijing. You’ll live with the nomads in Mongolia and party in quirky Ulaanbaatar. Enjoy a dip in Lake Baikal after a few nights on the train and absorb fascinating history in Moscow or while strolling along the Great Wall.
