New Trip Brings Globetrotters to Russia's Treasures


Goway's Newest Holiday of a Lifetime invites travellers to see this mysterious country in style.


Departing in September, Goway Travel will take globetrotters on its first Holiday of a Lifetime dedicated to Russia, with stops in Helsinki and Tallinn to round out the journey. The company’s existing Russia products include the Trans-Siberian railway and a river cruise between Saint Petersburg and Moscow.

The world’s largest country offers endless opportunities for exploration. Saint Petersburg and Moscow are both iconic cities wrapped in their motherland’s rich and often turbulent history. The Trans-Siberian is the world’s longest railway journey, connecting Moscow with the Sea of Japan. Many travellers combine it with the Trans-Mongolian, connecting to another of the world’s great capitals, Beijing. Both routes pass the world’s deepest lake, Lake Baikal.

Some put off what should be an unforgettable Russia holiday because of unfounded fears about crime – mostly stemming from outdated 90’s stereotypes. Today’s Russia is a very easy and safe country to visit as part of a guided group, and while independent travel requires more planning, it’s certainly not unsafe for the more adventurous globetrotter. Russia is however known for its complicated visa system, which makes the help of an expert travel agent invaluable.

Goway’s Treasures of Russia is the most hassle-free and luxurious of the company’s Russia tours. This two-week trip starts in Helsinki, Finland and goes on to Tallinn, Estonia, before venturing into Russia itself. Passengers are then treated to the best Saint Petersburg and Moscow have to offer, including the Hermitage Museum, magnificent Catherine Palace, St. Isaac’s Cathedral, Red Square, the Grand Kremlin, the Tretyakov Gallery, performances at the Mariinsky and Bolshoi Theatres and more. Goway’s Holidays of a Lifetime are all-inclusive, fully escorted trips that combine the best of their destinations with uniquely immersive experiences. With that in mind, Treasures of Russia offers far more than a standard Russia tour.

With numbers strictly limited, these trips sell quickly. However, places are still available on the Treasures of Russia September 2014 departure. Prices start at just US$6819, though they are expected to rise next year. Goway can also arrange competitive airfares from most North American cities.
