Trans-Siberian Beijing to Moscow

Itinerary Overview

14 NIGHTS / 15 DAYS

DAY 1 : Beijing-Temple of Heaven and Tiananmen Square
  Friendly and knowledgeable travel guides await you at the airport to take you to your first class hotel in the centre of town. After a brief rest the itinerary starts off with a tour of Beijing. Highlights include Beijing′s most stunning sights: the Temple of Heaven as well as the famous Tiananmen Square. The day concludes in a relaxed manner with drinks and dinner.
DAY 2 : Great Wall and Peking Duck
  The Great Wall of China is the 8th Wonder of the World; this is your chance to experience it up close.

DAY 3 : Forbidden City and departure for Mongolia
  For centuries the doors to the former Emperor′s Palaces have been closed to the public. Today the glorious halls and mysterious temples of the Forbidden City are open for you. In the evening, the rail part of the journey begins. A modern Chinese train will pull out from Beijing′s station, en route to Mongolia, a 16-hour trip (Nostalgic Comfort and Bolshoi cars are not available for this one night).

  At noon you arrive at the Chinese-Mongolian border and change to your Private Train. Formalities are easily dispatched in your compartment. In Erlian you can explore the colourful border market. Afterwards, your Private Train takes you through the vast expanse of the Gobi desert, then through the great green steppes of Mongolia.

DAY 6 : Gandan Monastery and the Mongolian Alps
  After breakfast you will visit the Buddhist Gandan Monastery and undertake an excursion to a mountainous area with stunning rock formations, known as the Mongolian Alps (about 90 minutes east of Ulan Bator). Along the way, an open-air railroad museum puts the Mongolian railway in context. A picnic lunch in a yurt is followed by a demonstration of Mongolian horsemanship and the traditional wrestling match. Try some lamb in milk, a culinary specialty of Mongolia. Or, for the brave of heart, there′s always kumys (fermented mare′s milk), the beer of the nomads.
DAY 7 : Ulan Ude
  Bid farewell to the Mongolian steppes as the train rolls on through the valley of Selenga, the largest river of Mongolia. In Ulan Ude your train joins the main route of the Transsiberian Railroad. Here you can stroll through the city streets or join the guided tour of the city.

  The entire day is dedicated to Lake Baikal. Before noon you will arrive at the old station of Port Baikal, located directly on the shore. During two long photo stops on the ancient tracks running parallel to the shore you will have the chance to capture the beauty of the lake on film and explore the wonderful scenery. Take a moment to have a dip in the lake or visit the picturesque Baikal village. You will also enjoy a short boat ride on the lake. If the night is warm, your dinner will be served as a picnic on the shores of the spectacular lake before re-boarding the train. Next stop: Irkutsk.

DAY 12 : Yekaterinburg
  In the afternoon the train stops in Yekaterinburg, the capital of the Ural Mountains and the border between Asia and Europe, where you enjoy a short tour of the city centre which was just restored in 2009. In the course of the city tour you will see the newly erected Cathedral-on-the-blood, built in memorial of that tragic historical event. From now on your train is on European ground.
DAY 13 : Kazan
  After breakfast you arrive in Kazan, the old Tatar capital on the banks of the Volga.
