Luxury Holidays to Russia

Russia’s far flung lands are truly mystifying, home to places that we’ve only imagined in celebrated novels and on the cinema screens. Though a destination that seems challenging at first, especially for its sheer scale, it can be incredibly rewarding and marvellously authentic. Home to Siberia, one of the least discovered corners of earth, it is a destination for those looking for adrenaline-filled, fear-conquering adventures. For culture and historic discover, spend time in the marvellous cities of St Petersburg and Moscow. From impressionist masterpieces to spectacular ballet, marvellous architecture to magnificent opera, one could say it houses two of the world’s cultural capitals.

Not often frequented by tourists, Russia is a destination that can be difficult to navigate, especially in Siberia. Not only do we offer excellent value, but our expertise, 24/7 support and local representatives ensure a seamless luxury holiday throughout. On a luxury holiday to Russia, we’ll be with you every step of the way, introducing you to destinations we have explored numerous times and have awarded the OROKO luxury seal of approval.

POCKET GUIDE TO RUSSIA 

Lake Baikal 

Known as the “Sacred Sea” by the indigenous people, Lake Baikal is so large that it is often mistaken for a sea. The world’s deepest and oldest lake in the world, Lake Baikal is famous for its crystal-clear waters, unique wildlife and indigenous Buryat culture. Explore the shores of the wonderful lake before taking a boat ride over the gently lapping waters. In the winter, the lake freezes over, making for fantastic snowmobiling and dog sledding. 

Siberia 

Extending from the ancient Ural Mountains in the west to the powerful Pacific Ocean in the east, Siberia is vast, diverse and beautiful. Covering more than half of Russia but home to only one fifth of the population, the sparsely populated landscapes of Siberia are shrouded in glaciated mountains, immense forests and picture-perfect towns. One of our favourite ways to holiday in Siberia is on a luxury rail holiday along the Trans-Siberian railway, a journey of dramatic and unspoilt landscapes.  

Moscow

The capital of Russia, Moscow is mysteriously romantic and classically aristocratic. Straight from the pages of a literary novel, its preserved streets, impressionist masterpieces and labyrinths of cobblestone streets retain their historic charm. A luxury holiday to Moscow is the perfect way to escape the modern world and immerse yourself in history and culture. From the bejewelled Fabergé eggs to the swirling colourful domes of St Basil’s Cathedral, prepare for a celebration of art.

St Petersburg  

An imperial city of lavish palaces and ornate architecture at every turn, St Petersburg’s sheer grandeur is enough to entice visitors from all over the world. Funded by Peter the Great’s inscrutable wealth, the city was created to be travelling Europeans first impression of Russia. Become immersed in a cityscape of aristocratic neighbourhoods, labyrinthian canals and fascinating culture as you visit the city’s hotspots. Travel back in time as you tour landmarks like the Peter and Paul Fortress, St Isaac’s Cathedral and the lavish St Catherine’s Palace.
