Don’t let the movie of the same name scare you off; this is a traveller’s Everest begging to be conquered. The Trans-Siberian Railway, a rail network between the Russian Far East and the Sea of Japan, is one of the longest railways in the world, linking Europe with China. There are endless epic train journeys to embark upon on the network, such as the seven-day Moscow to Vladivostok or Moscow to Beijing, either on the Trans-Mongolian line or the Trans-Manchurian line. One magnificent adventure is the 20-night Trans-Siberian Railway Escorted Journey, offered by House of Travel.

Trans-Siberian Railway Escorted Journey

Imagine starting your journey in Beijing, exploring ancient relics and centuries of Chinese history and culture, discovering great highlights of Tiananmen Square, Temple of Heaven, and the Forbidden City. That might satisfy some travellers, but your intrepid journey is just beginning. Climb aboard the Trans-Siberian Railway, exploring the ancient mysteries of Mongolia, visit Lake Baikal in Siberia, and continue on to enjoy the splendours of Moscow and St Petersburg. Best of all, a tour like this includes a tour leader and local guides in each location.
