This off-beat tour of Russia shows you the highlights as well as some places few travellers ever get to see.  St. Petersburg's Hermitage Museum, palaces and churches along with Moscow's Kremlin, Armoury  and Red Square are of course featured.  But between the two you will get a unique insight into the real Russia with visits to the Russian Orthodox Monastery on the Solovetsky Islands in the White Sea as well as the port city of Murmansk and the half abandoned town of Teriberka in Russia's far north.  Finally, before returning to Moscow, visit Yaroslavl, a treasure trove of architectural wonders dating back to the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.

Adventure Coordinators Insider Tip:

This is a trip that shows you some of the highlights of Russia but also takes you well off the beaten path to see a part of Russia not many people get to see.  Expect some long travel days.
