Walking holidays to Russia involve visiting iconic cities such as St Petersburg and Moscow, where you can venture out into the wilderness to explore this great nation. The ‘Baltic Discovery’ trip is your ticket to St Petersburg, where you can dock at one of the most cultured cities in Russia while enjoying a plethora of enticing destinations in this part of the world while aboard your cruise liner. What was once the capital of Russia still has an air of grandeur and sophistication where you can find a thriving art scene, historic sites and breathtaking architecture. You will soon become acquainted with the colourful domes of this city, including St Isaac’s Cathedral with its frescos and stately presence, as well as the multicoloured domes of the iconic Saviour on the Spilled Blood at the heart of the city. You can also venture out of the bustling cities found in this country and make your way through Russia’s eleven different time zones. Here, you could stumble across the Kamchatka Peninsula, which is home to vast snow-capped mountains, active volcanoes and brown bears. The city of Yakutsk is also worth a visit, where you can stop by the intriguing Melnikov Permafrost Institute Underground Laboratory that houses ancient mammoth and rhino fossils; and from there you can see the curious rock formations found in Lena Pillars National Park. Make sure you wrap up warm when you go for a sled dog safari, to see the breathtaking countryside laden with snow.
