Escape the crowds and explore Siberia in the harshest, but arguably most rewarding, season, with a scenic winter route along the iconic Trans-Siberian Railway. This 11-day tour of Siberian highlights is designed specifically with the cooler months in mind - ideal for those looking for a winter wonderland getaway. Starting in the Russian capital, Moscow, you'll reach each destination by train and many stretches of the railroad require overnight journeys on board. Your first stop is Kazan with its famous Tatar cuisine and thousand-year-old history, next is Yekaterinburg with its stunning Ural Mountain landscapes and modern history as the site of the Romanov executions, then it's on to Novosibirsk (the unofficial capital city of Siberia) and the nearby science-themed town of Akademogorodok, and finally Irkutsk and its neighbor, the glittering Lake Baikal.
