Responsible tourism: Trans Siberian Railway vacation, Russian Summer


All our activities are run with respect to the environment, making sure that the volume of participants and type of tourism we offer doesn’t have any negative impact on local conditions and infrastructure.
Taking into consideration that sustainable development is still a new topic in Russia, we educate our partners and suppliers about environmental responsibility of their operations and we encourage them to improve sustainability of their practices. Our clients are also asked to act as role models and to give example to Russian communities on hoe to live in respect to the environment.
We give priority to public transport and optimise the itinerary to reduce the carbon footprint. The main mean of transportation on this tour is, obviously, train, which not only is the most exciting and reliable, but also environmental friendly. In the cities, we offer walking tours and we use public transportation (buses, metro) when needed.
We reduce carbon footprint of our tours by offering our clients a compensation scheme, thanks to our cooperation with Atmosfair, encouraged especially when booking flights through us.
We are keen on recycling, energy-saving solutions and minimising litter, water and atmospheric pollution both in our office and at any specific tourism activity we provide. We recycle waste produced at our office and bring it to special collection points.
We encourage our clients to limit waste produced on the tour by using reusable tea flasks, and reusable bags to collect litter.
We inform our travelers about protected areas they visit, including Pribaikalsky Nature Reserve and Baikal National Park, restrictions and accepted behaviours.


We are a small Russian inbound tour operator based in Moscow, run and owned by young enthusiastic entrepreneurs who love Russia, its breathtaking nature, rich culture and hospitable people. As a company, we aim to contribute to the long-term future of Russia’s economic stability, environmental wellness, cultural heritage and people’s well-being by acting responsibly and implementing sustainable solutions on all levels of our operations.
This tour is exclusively operated by local suppliers, local service providers and local guides.
We place our guests at the heart of the local communities by using small and medium locally run and locally owned accommodation providers.
We give our clients the chance to interact with real Russian people on the tours, and on the train – by placing them in the 3rd or 2nd class compartments, which are also commonly used by local travelers.
We organize informal language classes, giving our tourists the chance to learn the basic Russian phrases, which will help them to interact with locals more freely.
We provide our customers with quality and adequate information on destinations they visit, to increase understanding of local culture, its problems and facilitate cultural exchange with local people.
We educate our customers by providing them guidelines on how to travel responsibly. Information is delivered in the pre-arrival kit, available on our tours and on our website.
We encourage our staff to act sustainably and train them on the most efficient ways to do it.
We actively participate in discussions about sustainability and responsible tourism, providing feedback and sharing our experiences.
