A holiday to Moscow in winter is nothing short of iconic. The immense historic buildings and squares wear a thick white coat of snow and travellers and locals alike shuffle past, wrapped up in furs to keep the chill at bay.

Journey from Moscow to St Petersburg aboard the luxury Imperial Russia Train and spend the day discovering St Petersburg’s biggest attractions, from the Peter & Paul Fortress to the Pushkin town and the impressive St Catherine’s Palace.

Continue north to the far reaches of Murmansk, far north of the arctic circle, to aim to catch a glimpse of the Aurora Borealis. Spend New Year’s eve in a Murmansk Hotel and set off to enjoy the frozen winter wilderness by dog sled at the house of Ded Moroz (Russia’s Father Christmas).

The journey also stops at lake-side Petrozavodsk, capital of the Republic of Kareliea, to explore Karelian traditions in the surrounding villages and Vologda on the Vologda River to tour the city’s impressive Kremlin.
