R6. When is the best season to travel the Trans-Siberian?

When do you advise to travel along the Trans-Siberian?









The tourist season for the Trans-Siberian starts in May and finishes in late September, most travels are made from July till early September both by foreign and local tourists enjoying their summer holidays. Tickets for this period should be bought well in advance.

But actually, the Trans-Siberian railway has something unique to offer at each period of the year.

In winter you can enjoy the snow-white laced trees and vast dales running away from the window of your warm compartment, sipping hot tea from a glass in an open-work glass-holder burning under your fingers, and see the breath-taking picture of Lake Baikal covered with ice, peaceful and silent, hidden from snowstorm and blizzard under a thick blanket of snow.

There's the Crystal Seal Festival of Ice Sculpture at the Lake Baikal, and the world-wide known Festival of Ice Sculpture in Harbin.
There's the Shrovetide pagan celebration and husky sledding in Siberia.
There's the Russian bania, snow fights, the ice wonders of Baikal, and so much more to enjoy!

Spring is as wonderful as it is everywhere and makes the capitals and the local highlights glow in sunlight. You are sure to enjoy Moscow and St Petersburg in bloom.

In summer, when the weather is milder, Lake Baikal becomes the preferred place of vacation for Russians. Both foreign and local travelers love traditional wooden mini-hotels built on the shores of the Lake where you can spend a couple of nights before going on with your travel.

Autumn is also an excellent season, when the weather is milder and the prices are not that high as in August.

It is really you who chooses!
