from $9,990* pp twin | $13,390* solo

Your epic journey starts in St. Petersburg – often called the Venice of the North where you’ll visit the Hermitage and see just a small portion of the enormous collection on display in 360 rooms. Explore the Shuvalovsky Palace, which is home to the world’s largest collection of pieces manufactured by the jeweller Peter Carl Fabergé, including nine imperial Easter eggs. Then it’s off to the Catherines Palace with its world-famous Amber Room.

Travelling north by fast train you arrive in Petrozavodsk set on the vast Lake Onega. This is your base for a tour to Kizhi Island. This enchanting green sliver is home to the magnificent Transfiguration Church, Russia’s most iconic wooden landmark.

You will travel by overnight train to central Kola’s second-biggest town, Apatity. Overnight trains are enjoyed by both locals and tourists in Russia allowing you to see more of the country in comfort whilst mingling with other guests. From here you’ll visit the impossibly remote and stunning Glacier Valley and the Khibiny Mountains. Journey on to the world’s biggest Arctic city – Murmansk, with its stolid Soviet-era architecture and incomparable Arctic scenery.

After a night in Bergen, you’ll head inland for a ride aboard the famous Flåm Railway and a cruise on Nærøyfjord where the surrounding mountains reach heights of 1,660 metres. Your journey will end in Oslo after a full day exploring this magical city.
