Crossing Eurasia with a Trans-Siberian tour is probably the ultimate adventure-of-a-lifetime and a bucket list item for many globetrotters. Unforgettable experiences from seeing breathtaking sights and getting to know the life of the locals are what make any Trans-Siberian tour a journey-of-a-lifetime. However, choosing one of the luxury Trans-Siberian trains out there is an entirely different mode of travel. It’s like taking a ride through Russia, Mongolia and China in a posh ‘Ritz-Carlton’ like ‘hotel-on-wheels’.
One of the most stretched-out cities in the world, Sochi is a narrow strip of land sprawling 90 miles across the Black Sea coastline. The unique combination of the subtropical climate in the coastal area and the mountains of the North Caucasus over the seaside makes this place one of Russia’s most attractive tourist destinations. Sochi is also among the world’s largest sources of hydrosulfuric springs and iodine-bromine waters, a competitive advantage that keeps the city in high demand among Russian and foreign vacationers.
Kamchatka’s 300 volcanoes are included as an entry on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. This fact, together with the geyser rivers and valleys, the volcanoes’ huge calderas and the perpetually changing landscapes after volcanic eruptions make Kamchatka one of the few places on earth where you can still feel like an explorer. This land was discovered more than 300 years ago, but even today so little is known about it. Until 1990 foreigners couldn’t set foot in Kamchatka and even Russians needed a special permit to come. Now it’s open to everyone.
