L.A. Times Spotlights Arctic Explorer Rail Journey by Private Train
If a tour of Western Russia’s historic capitals combined with a chance to view the spectacular Northern Lights sounds like your idea of a fabulous wintertime getaway, then the L.A. Times suggests MIR’s Arctic Explorer: Quest for the Northern Lights rail journey aboard the luxurious Golden Eagle private train.
The excursion begins in St. Petersburg, Russia, where participants will visit the Hermitage and St. Isaac’s Cathedral before boarding the train. Highlights include the polar town of Kirkenes, Norway, and a search for the northern lights; the arctic port of Murmansk; and a tour of the Lenin, the world’s first nuclear-powered ice breaker.
