Why book a trip to Russia?

Russia fascinates people. It is the largest country in the world, 70 times bigger than the UK, has one foot in Europe, one in Asia and covers almost a seventh of the planet’s land mass… This excessiveness is not limited to its geography. It is a country rich in culture, that has given us some of the most brilliant artists, whether musicians or writers.

Russia fascinates people. It is the largest country in the world, 70 times bigger than the UK, has one foot in Europe, one in Asia and covers almost a seventh of the planet’s land mass… This excessiveness is not limited to its geography. It is a country rich in culture, that has given us some of the most brilliant artists, whether musicians or writers. A trip to Russia will automatically take you to St-Petersburg: ancient capital of the tsars and cultural centre of Russia; with its numerous canals, it is often called the Venice of the north… 450 miles to the south, is Moscow, the largest town in Europe, with 10 million inhabitants. It is a sprawling capital, where all the populace of the Federation are represented; Moscow will rarely leave you indifferent. You then need to leave the towns to reach the vast expanses of Russia. Discover the edges of the biggest soft-water lake in the world, Lake Baïkal. Have a taste of Russian soul, by travelling on a train for hours and hours – probably the trans-Siberian train; or even a cruise on the Volga, the biggest river in Europe, that, with its tributaries, cuts across the biggest part of the country… These varied experiences will no doubt allow you to fall under the spell of Russia…

Start planning your tour to Russia

Russia’s natural side will undoubtedly draw you to the banks of Lake Baïkal, a true inland freshwater sea, that extends north- and southwards over hundreds of miles. More than 300 different watercourses empty into the lake, making it the largest freshwater supply in the world. A true jewel of aquatic biodiversity! Perhaps you have read Sylvain Tesson and are walking in his tracks and, like him, you take pleasure in “living as a hermit beneath the trees”. Nature in Russia may also be experienced with a cruise on the Volga. In the middle ages, “Mother Volga” as the Russians sometimes call it, marked Russia’s eastern frontier. The river’s navigability and the beauty of the towns it passes through make a cruise on this river an unforgettable moment: an excellent way to discover this region. Another way of sensing the Russian spirit is to embark on the Transiberian, today an iconic railway line, but which was a nightmare for the thousands of prisoners and workers who laid the 5,500 miles of track… More than a means of transport, today it is a place for meeting, setting off and discovering.
