boundless vastness, shamanic rituals, horse riding and deep blue lakes

The endless expanses stretching from the Urals to the Pacific Ocean still represent a sort of terra incognita even for the most seasoned traveller. Despite being notoriously regarded as an immense sleepy land of eternal ice and grey decaying towns, Siberia is, in fact, one of the most complex and fascinating parts of the former Soviet Union. A diverse natural landscape of pristine forests, high mountains and rolling steppes is home to a multiethnic society where Russian culture and Soviet glory meet shamanic rituals, nomadic traditions and Buddhist heritage

In addition to the itineraries published on the website we also offer tailored adventures, unusual travel routes and short city trips across and beyond Soviet Siberia. Examples include: ghost-town tours in Krasnoyarsk Krai, ethnological expeditions in the Khanty-Mansi region (Yugra), customised Trans-Siberian journeys and long drives across the endless Taiga of the Komi Republic. Just email us at info@soviettours.com for more info about unadvertised tours.

Siberia is so big, it’s almost more an idea than a place.
