Plot Your Own Path
Traveling privately on a custom itinerary means flexibility – flexibility to immerse yourself in your own exclusive experience, to craft an itinerary around your interests, and to travel when it’s right for you.
Want to take a boat ride across UNESCO-listed Lake Baikal in search of the nerpa seals endemic to the area? How about visiting a local Buryat, Yakut, Even, or Koryak indigenous family to learn about their unique history and customs?
Below are just a few examples of the signature experiences that MIR can arrange for you in Siberia and the Russian Far East. Let them be a source of inspiration, then get in touch with one of our Private Journey Specialists to craft an itinerary uniquely suited to your travel goals, budget, and style.
- Sample Siberian culinary specialties, including fresh-caught fish unique to Lake Baikal, at the home of a family in the lakeside village of Listvyanka.
- Take a helicopter flight over the dramatic landscape of Kamchatka to visit reindeer herders still practicing the nomadic lifestyle that was once the norm for this part of the Russian Far East.
- At a rustic resort in the woods near Irkutsk, dash through the snow on a traditional troika ride. Troika simply means three of something – in this case, three horses pulling a Russian sleigh.
- In Vladivostok, explore the massive artillery at the batteries on Russian Island that were once part of the city’s defensive fortification system.
