Traveling Solo? Celebrate the Trans-Siberian’s 100th Anniversary and Save

2016 marks MIR’s 30th year of traveling to Russia and all its neighbors. The Trans-Siberian Railway will also be having a special occasion of its own this summer: its 100th year of rolling entirely across Russian soil.

As part of the celebration, we’ve added a special one-time only rail journey aboard the Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express private train, the Siberia Discovery Route, to our roster of 2016 Trans-Siberian expeditions. And for those who choose to travel solo, we’ve made it a little easier by waiving the cost of the single supplement, helping you save while making your Trans-Siberian travel dreams a reality (more info on the special offer).

The Trans-Siberian Railway – Siberia Discovery Route
From Moscow to Vladivostok within Siberia
Departure: July 26-August 9, 2016
Price: From $16,995 (per person)

On this special departure, the single supplement has been waived for all classes.What this means is that single travelers will not incur these single supplement costs:

  • Silver Class: Save the $8,000 single supplement cost
  • Gold Class: Save the $10,400 single supplement cost

Travelers aboard the Siberia Discovery Route will ride in luxury over eight time zones from Moscow to Vladivostok, seeing remote parts of Siberia that most travelers don’t usually experience. And since the history of the Trans-Siberian can be just as fascinating as the journey itself, this rail journey will also feature award-winning author and train expert Christian Wolmar as guest lecturer onboard the train. This is a special one-time only rail journey for 2016, so once the season passes, it’s gone forever!

Rail journeys on the luxury Golden Eagle private train are in a class of their own, allowing travelers to experience remote destinations in style and comfort, with no need to pack or unpack as the journey unfolds. Each luxury train departure is all-inclusive, with modern amenities, abundant food and wine, and onboard entertainment. (Read more about the train here.) A Trans-Siberian rail trip is an experience to remember for the rest of your life, so make 2016 the year to treat yourself to an unforgettable journey full of history, old-world flavor and style.

    I took the Trans-Siberian as a student in July 1969 from Moscow to Nakhodka (Vladivostok was still a closed military port then). The total trip cost all of $200, including all meals and the 52-hour boat trip to Yokohama. I wasn’t sure of making the trip until the day before, as there had been fighting along the Ussuri River border with China, and trains had been canceled because of the risk of war. I made only one stop for a night in Irkutsk, basically spending seven days on the train, which was full of Australians, as it was then the cheapest way for them to and from Europe before the age of cheap flights. As a bonus, I watched Neil Armstrong land on the moon on July 20th, sitting on a Russian steamer in the middle of the Sea of Japan.

    I cannot afford MIR’S price of almost $17,000 to ride this train! That is WAY too much. I’m not made of money…MIR needs to develope some less expensive itineraries & programs to meet the budgets of those of us out here who don’t own $500,000 houses, a boat, & all the trappings that come w/ the affluent lifestyle. Bring it down to $5,000 & then you’ll get my attention.
