Global Traveler, which seeks to provide “up-to-minute, need-to-know information to elite travelers every month,” recently featured MIR’s Arctic Explorer luxury rail journey by private train. The article addresses many of the signature experiences travelers will have on the tour as they ride “from St. Petersburg to Moscow in über luxury aboard the private Golden Eagle train,” making stops in Russia’s Golden Ring, Murmansk, Petrozavodsk and Kizhi Island.
Stroll the famous Nevsky Prospekt before boarding the train, where you’ll be served a delectable signature caviar dinner while heading north across the Arctic Circle.
