Handcrafted, Private Tours to Belarus


You want to do things your way. We get it. MIR has been planning custom, private tours from scratch for over three decades, and we understand just how important flexibility is in travel.

Traveling privately on a custom private tour affords a great deal of flexibility – flexibility to immerse yourself in your own exclusive experience, to craft an itinerary around your interests, to go at your own pace, and to travel when it’s right for you.

How does it work? We’ll connect you with one of our Private Tour Designers so that you can share your vision and expectations with us.

We’ll ask you questions to better learn about your interests: Want to trace your roots and pay a visit to the village your ancestors once called home? How about visiting a local family’s dacha or the home of a local artist to chat over tea and cakes?

We’ll share our extensive experience in the region – and our suggestions. And then we’ll dig into it and custom-craft a private tour itinerary for your review. Give us a call at 800-424-7289 to get started, or click here to be on your way.

Signature Experiences

Below are just a few examples of the signature experiences that MIR can arrange for you in Belarus. Let them be a source of inspiration, then get in touch with one of our Private Tour Designers to craft an itinerary that’s uniquely suited to your travel goals, budget, and style.

  • Bird watching in the ancient primeval forests and marshes of Belovezhskaya Pushcha Nature Reserve, where over 250 different species of birds reside in warmer months.
  • Meet and converse with a Belarusian Jew who survived the Nazi atrocities and is working to revive the Jewish community in Minsk.
  • Experience Belarusian hospitality at a working farmstead, owned by a family that has lived and worked on their farm for generations, preserving and continuing their ancestors’ traditions and crafts.
  • Tour the BelAz factory (short for Belaruski Autamabilny Zavod, or “Belarusian Automobile Plant”), the world’s biggest manufacturer of large trucks and construction equipment; their impressive 7547 model truck was declared the world’s largest dump truck by Guinness Book of World Records.

Suggested Private Tours

And if you don’t feel that a fully-customized trip is what you seek, we’ve got the perfect solution. Whether you’re looking for a compact trip that hits the highlights or something more in depth, MIR offers suggested private tours that can be adapted to your choice of dates. Our itinerary, your dates – it’s a great option whether you’re traveling solo, as a couple, or in a small group.

Also keep in mind that you can customize and tweak any of our small group tours to match your preferred dates of travel. Get in touch, we’re here to help.
