Arctic Explorer: Northern Lights, Northern Culture
Aboard the Golden Eagle Private Train

Admire the graceful UNESCO-listed churches in Suzdal and Vladimir and end in magnificent Moscow.

- Visit the Fortress of Peter the Great and Paul, one of the first structures in St. Petersburg.
- Take a bus tour in search of the Northern Lights in the region of Aurora Borealis Zone.
