Nothing is quite as evocative of Russia as scenes of glittering snow and silent birch forests as the Trans Siberian train slides across the country. Wrap up warm as your inner Doctor Zhivago takes you on this winter adventure, celebrating this festive time of the year to the sound of sleigh bells.
Christmas Trans Mongolian
Experience a Russian Christmas in a Siberian village and New Year’s Eve in Moscow’s Red Square. Along the way, you can enjoy a traditional troika ride led by three horses, and stay in a Mongolian ger camp surrounded by snow. What more could you wish for this Christmas?

A wonderful tour with excellent service from the operators. We had a great tour leader and really good local guides. Don't think about it anymore. Go. You'll not regret it!

During April 2018, my wife and I travelled with Sundowners. Our 'Dream Holiday' far exceeded our expectations due to the detailed and meticulous work of Sundowners.

Our journey across Russia was fabulous, thanks to Sundowners organisation and their terrific staff. Everything worked like clockwork - transfers, hotel choices, local ambassadors, their knowledge and friendliness was greatly appreciated. We would certainly recommend this as one of the greatest train journeys we have experienced. It was amazing crossing the country by train, the scenery beautiful - there's nothing more wonderful and relaxing than watching it slide by with a vodka in your hand!
