16-Day Group Tour to Russia and Mongolia from Moscow

This two week itinerary brings 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 find that 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.
