More Information

DAY 1 Helsinki, Finland

Visit the major landmarks and embrace Finnish tradition with a hearty salmon soup (lohikeitto). Or, try ice skating or foodie-stall hopping at Old Market Square before meeting your soon-to-be besties for a group dinner. This is gonna be awesome!


DAY 2 Helsinki to Tallinn, Estonia

Ferry it from Helsinki to the Silicon Valley on the Baltic Sea, where Skype was invented and kids start coding at six. Go exploring and check out the only surviving Gothic town hall in northern Europe.


DAY 3 Tallinn

Go all ‘knight in shining armour’ with a medieval tour of the city (horse not included), or go and see the super impressive Kadriorg Palace (optional). The palace is home to the Kadriorg Art Museum as well. Plenty to get your teeth into.


DAY 4 Tallinn to St Petersburg, Russia

Russia is bigger than Pluto, so it’s understandable that today’s drive is pretty epic. Say Zdravstvujtye (zdrah-stvooy-tee = hello) as we arrive in St Petersburg in time to scope out the Venice of the North on a driving tour. The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood is awesome in all its domed and glittery glory.


DAY 5 St Petersburg

With three million items in the archives, the Hermitage Museum is your morning sorted. It has the largest collection of paintings in the world and guard cats that protect them from rodents.


DAY 6 St Petersburg to Moscow via overnight train

Take in the city at your own pace today. Then, why not dial up your inner hipster with a visit to the city’s Street Art Museum? Later, it’s all aboard the night train to Moscow. Get cosy!


DAY 7 Moscow

Bounce into Moscow this morning to roll with the billionaires. The city is home to the largest number of high-rollers in the world. We've got a driving tour to give you a good overview of the city.


DAY 8 Moscow

You’ll feel like you’re in a history book today. Check out the Red Square, then on to the Kremlin. Fact: The Kremlin was saved from WWII bombing by disguising it as a normal house. Pretty cool huh? The evening's yours to explore.


DAY 9 Moscow

St Basil's Cathedral in winter blows all those Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales out of the water. Gaze up at the onion domes then go underground to check out some of the 196 beautiful metro stations (optional). Prep that Instagram of yours. Your final dinner of the trip is on us tonight. Cheers!


DAY 10 Moscow

Time to say poka (bye) after breakfast. We won’t blame you if you wanna stick around for more though.
