Arctic Explorer Named a Favorite Tour for 2017 by Travel Age West
Travel Age West, in an article entitled “6 Adventure Tours Perfect for the New Year,” included MIR’s Arctic Explorer rail journey by private train in its round-up of “favorite tours and excursions” to book for the new year.
During the 12-day itinerary, which travels from St. Petersburg, Russia, to Moscow on the Golden Eagle deluxe private train, guests will cross the Arctic Circle to the Norwegian town of Kirkenes. In addition to finding the Northern Lights, clients will embark on a dogsled ride across frozen lakes; visit St. Isaac’s Cathedral; see the world’s first nuclear-powered icebreaker; tour the open-air museum of Kizhi Island and more.
