As well as it’s epic east-west train trips and south-north river journeys, Russia also has a great potential for serious overland driving trips, either self-driving or with a driver. These can be up to 15,000km from the Norwegian border in the western Arctic to Chukotka in the eastern Arctic. Alternatively, they can be up to 5000km south-north from the Chinese border to Chukotka in the eastern Arctic.

We offer two overland itineraries with a driver:

1. The Road of Bones (2200km from Yakutsk to Magadan)

2. Overland from Yakutia to Chukotka (2700km, mostly on an ice road)

And two overland itineraries which are done on a mixture of trains and private vehicles with driver:

1. From Karelia to Yamal

2. From the Kola Peninsula to Dagestan

We can also provide vehicles for driving trips (with or without a driver included) in any part of Russia apart from on ice roads. We have experience of organising self-driving trips in the Republic of Tuva, Russia’s centre of shamanism and throat-singing, several trips from Moscow to Magadan and a 12,500km trip from the Norwegian border in the western Arctic to Magadan on the Pacific Ocean coast. We can have the cars delivered to anywhere in Russia, and you can drop them off anywhere in Russia. Please contact us for an itinerary and price quote tailored specifically to your needs.

We also organise the Russian section of the Trans-Siberian trips run from Beijing to Moscow via Mongolia by several international tour operators. Please contact us for more information.
