Krasnoyarsk to Vladivostok Trans-Siberian Rail Journey in 22 days

Join Odyssey Traveller on this Krasnoyarsk to Vladivostok Trans-Siberian Rail Journey. During this escorted small group tour we embark on the greatest train journey in the world, the Trans-Siberian Railway. The tour covers the second leg of the Trans-Siberian journey, travelling further east from Krasnoyarsk in the heart of Siberian Russia to the port city of Vladivostok, where Russia shares its border with China and juts out into the Pacific Ocean. Vladivostok is the eastern terminus of the main Trans-Siberian route.

This 22-day tour  is designed for the mature or senior traveller interested in history and culture, whether travelling alone or with company. Group size is typically between four to 12 travellers, fully escorted by an Odyssey Program Leader and local guides. This small group tour offers flexibility, focused attention, and stops in cities and towns not usually included in other commercial tours, promising a unique experience even on this train journey that has been attempted by millions of travellers.

This tour spends multiple nights in:

  • Krasnoyarsklocated more than 4,000 kilometres from Moscow, one of the oldest Siberian towns
  • Abakan, the capital city of the Republic of Khakassia and dubbed the Siberian "Archaeological Mecca"
  • Irkutsk, the jewel of eastern Siberia
  • Khabarovsk, sitting on the bank of the Amur River just 20 kilometres from the border with China
  • Vladivostok, which means "lord of the east", where in 1891 tsar-to-be Nicholas first laid the stone that would be the foundation of the Trans-Siberian Railway
