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.
