Baikal-Amur Mainline (Bam) Railway Group Tour

Visit operator website

Run by: Regent Holidays

Reference number: ITN_RUS_057

From: £3595.00

This small-group tour is truly for the adventurous traveller.

We prefer our holidays with a twist of the alternative, so you'll embark on a truly unique railway holiday along the BAM section of the Trans-Siberian Railway. There's no other railway quite like the epic Trans-Siberian, stretching all the way from Moscow to the Russian Far East, but the Baikal-Amur Mainline (featured in our top 5 rail journeys) route branches away from the 'true' Trans-Sib to traverse remotest Siberia and skirt the northern borders of Mongolia and China to reach Vladivostok.

This route travels from Vladivostok on the far Russian east coast to Lake Baikal, the largest freshwater lake in the world and stops at small towns where the lives of the inhabitants are intrinsically linked to the railroad. Officially opened in 1989, it wasn't until 10 years later that the first tourists could take the train.

We'll take you to clatter along the rails of one of the world's most intriguing train lines, passing through the mountains, marshes and permafrost that challenged engineers daily as they built the tracks. Watch the scenery change from forests, rivers and lakes to frozen tundra from your carriage, spending time with like-minded travellers. 

We operate this tour every two years so please register your interest for 2020 by emailing Christina
