Our 2 weeks itineraries bring together the highlights of a Russian Trans-Mongolian rail journey with a more comprehensive dip into Mongolia’s wild national parks than most visitors allow themselves to experience. You’ll receive a warm welcome throughout your trip and learn a lot about the rich cultural heritage that characterises both nations. From the bustle of cosmopolitan Moscow to the vast empty spaces of the Mongolian countryside, this is a varied and most enjoyable tour.
