Itinerary

Day 1: St. Petersburg
Zdrastvutye! Welcome to Russia. Meet your tour guide at Clearwater International Airport then transfer to hotel. Take a good rest after long flight. If you are still energetic, you may take a self-guided walk in this one of Europe’s finest and most dazzling cities. St. Petersburg was founded by Russian tsar Peter the Great in 1703. There is still air of romance around this magnificent imperial city. Baroque architecture stands alongside the opulent palaces of Russian royalty, St Petersburg’s history, emerging art and music scene, and riotous nightlife won’t fail to get under your skin. Overnight in St. Petersburg

Day 2: St. Petersburg - Jadricha
Today we will travel to Velikiy Ustyug. In the morning after breakfast, you will be transferred to St. Petersburg Ladogskii. Board on the overnight train to Jadricha (approximately 22hours, total 1188km). You will arrive in Jadricha at 8:00AM the next day. Overnight on board

Day 3: Jadricha - Veliky Ustyug
Upon arrival in Jadricha, you will be greeted by your tour guide then transfer to Velikiy Ustyug (approximately 1 hour driving). This small town is officially declared the home of Ded Moroz, the Russian Santa Claus. We’ll take a walking tour around the township, then the evening is free to spend as you please. Overnight in Velikiy Ustyug

Day 4: Veliky Ustyug - Labytnangi
Spend the morning enjoying some free time, perhaps visiting Father Frost’s Residence, before the drive to Kotlas (70 kilometres), where we’ll board our next overnight train (approximately 25 hours). Overnight onboard

Day 5: Labytnangi - Salekhard
Arrive in Labytnangi, where you’ll transfer to Salekhard via private car and ferry. Founded in 1595 by Russian Cossacks, Salekhard was once used as a place of exile, with prisoners in Soviet camps forced to mine metal ores, construct a new railway, or polish diamonds. Your evening here is free, in preparation for the journey ahead. Overnight in Salekhard

Day 6: Salekhard - Yar Sale
After breakfast, you will take a long driving journey from Salekhard to Yar Sale Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug (approximately 6-8 hours). Upon arrival, you will be transferred to hotel, feel free to explore Yar Sale Village on your own. Overnight in Yar Sale Village

Day 7: Yar Sale
In the morning, take a sledge from Yar Sale Village to Nenets Camp. You will have a chance to live with nomadic reindeer herders, move the camp with them and take a close look at the nomadic lifestyle. You’ll have the opportunity here to get up close to the beautiful reindeer herd, and perhaps give reindeer sledging a go. The Nenets rely on reindeer for almost everything; the creatures provide food, warmth and transport. Overnight in Camp

Sit back and enjoy the view as Russia’s winter landscape rushes by. This is good opportunity to share travel stories with your fellow passengers, or test your language skills with a conversation with some of the locals. Overnight onboard

Day 15: Moscow
Arrive into Moscow very early at 4:45am. Head to the hotel, you will have a room to freshen up before heading out to explore dazzling Moscow at your leisure. The Russian capital has survived centuries of revolution and has seen the country through some of its most turbulent years, from the days of the tsars through the communist era to the growing pains of democracy. Beneath its modern veneer – due to Russia's recent embrace of capitalism – Moscow is a fascinating, historic city with a wealth of sights to see. Overnight in Moscow

Day 16: Moscow
This is the last day of your Siberia Yamal Peninsula Tour. You will be escorted to Moscow international airport, from where you will take your flight onward. The whole team of Bravo Asia Tours welcomes your next trip to Asia with us again.

We had 22 wonderful days in Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. Every time we arrived in a new place, there was always someone waiting for us. This really comforted us a lot. Reduce our nervous feeling in a totally strange place with no language understanding. We were picked up from the airport with our luggage stored in a van every time then assisted on hotel check-in and toured with our private chauffeur and tour guide. Our tour guides are very professional and knowledgeable about their country and history and made us feel very welcome and relaxed like touring with old friends.

I recently booked a trip to Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos through your agency. Our main contact person is Andy Chen. Andy and his team of agents have coordinated an excellent trip that includes all of the places that we are interested in seeing. Additionally, they made wonderful suggestions, and arranged lovely places for us to stay. Andy responded immediately to all of our queries. I am a university English professor, and I must say that Andy's English is exceptional. I would like to thank Andy and the team for their excellent service. I recommend them with the highest honors, and we are looking forward to our trip in February. I plan to use your agency for a trip to China next year. Best wishes, and thank you.

Had such an amazing time in Cambodia with Bravo Asia Tours, the tour was very detail and intimate. Our guide Mr Sok’s knowledge of the temples, Cambodia politics and the world are amazing. He's very attentive to our needs, very detail in explaining everything :) his love of his culture really shine through. The Angkor sunrise viewing was great, we missed out on the sunset as we have other arrangement. The driver was very kind too, always ready with cold water bottle and cold towel! Which you really will appreciate in Siem Reap weather. I can't recommend this tour enough! Really great value too, you got so much with the price. One very happy customer!

I'm a firm believer in having a private tour when visiting a new country to get the most out of it. And BAT did not disappoint in Myanmar and Thailand! We had several free days in Thailand then for Myanmar. Suri, our guide in Myanmar was extremely knowledgeable and provided so much more information than you'd ever read in a book, as well as providing insights on history and current events from a local perspective. He is respectful, fun and very flexible to make the tour what you want it to be. And he knows the best places. I highly recommend Bravo Asia Tours.
