Splendors of Siberia & Mongolia by Luxury Rail
About this trip
Setting a new standard for high-end travel, the lavish Golden Eagle train balances privacy with an intimate size that encourages community with other travelers. This once-a-year route is specially timed for the Naadam Festival, known as the “Mongolian Olympics.” Admire the festival’s colorful pageantry, dazzling performances, and the spectacle of its archery, horseback riding, and wrestling events. Then, board the Golden Eagle to cross vast green steppes dotted with grazing livestock and white nomadic gers (yurts). An extraordinary highlight will be Russia’s Lake Baikal, where we’ll enjoy a feast of smoked omul fish freshly sourced from the lake. In Irkutsk, the “Paris of Siberia,” celebrate with a private concert and champagne reception. Honor the life of Russian opera virtuoso Feodor Chaliapin (1873-1938) with an exclusive performance of his music in his hometown of Kazan. Visit the site in Yekaterinburg where the Romanovs met their fate at the hands of the Bolsheviks in 1918. Finish in Moscow with a private viewing of the treasures of the tsars.
