Still, navigating the enormity of Russia can be daunting…travel specialists APT are experts at delivering the ultimate all-inclusive holidays in this remarkable destination. APT’s premium river cruising and epic rail journeys offer a privileged window into Russia’s best-loved sights, cities and natural wonders, as well as a convenient way to bypass the crowds and veer off the beaten track in safety and comfort.
Their modern river ship plies Russia’s majestic waterways between Moscow and St. Petersburg, circling the historic Golden Ring towns and exploring the remote wonders of Kizhi Island, with its magnificent ancient wooden churches.
