Rail Plus is now offering bookings for the 2016 season of the legendary Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Railway, which celebrates its centenary next year by offering two new journeys that give travellers a rare glimpse into Siberia’s unforgettable landscapes and culture.
Launched in 1916, the Trans-Siberian Railway connects Russia’s European capital Moscow with Vladivostok in the country’s Far East, making it the world’s longest rail journey.
Travelling in luxurious private trains – featuring en-suite accommodation, beautifully appointed restaurant cars and guided off-train excursions – Golden Eagle passengers experience the journey in unrivalled style and comfort*.
In 2016, in addition to its traditional range of itineraries – which range from 13 to 15 days – Golden Eagle is for the first time offering:
- The Trans-Siberian Express Siberian Discovery – the opening of the Trans-Siberian Railroad unlocked vast areas of Siberia to settlement and this new itinerary provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore some of the region’s lesser-known places and communities
- The Trans-Siberian Express via BAM (Baikal Amur Magistral) – built as a strategic alternative route to the Trans-Siberian Railway, the Baikal-Amur Magistral line is an extraordinary engineering feat that traverses challenging terrain to take passengers across some of Siberia’s most dramatic and untouched landscapes.
In 2016, Rail Plus is also offering the Champagne Express, a new 15-day itinerary to be undertaken by the Golden Eagle Danube Express.
The 15-day journey takes passengers from Budapest to Paris via some of world’s most fascinating cities – including Vienna, Verona and Monte Carlo – as well as some of Europe’s most prestigious wine cellars and champagne houses.
