Russia, the world’s largest country, is a land of superlatives matched by its epic history, monumental architecture, incredible culture and sweeping landscapes of immense beauty. Perhaps the best way to cover the breadth of its myriad gems and feel the might of empires past is on a relaxing river cruise, where every turn reveals a fascinating new view. The mighty ‘Mother Volga’, Europe’s longest river, entices us with different landscapes: swathes of ancient silver-birch forests, centuries-old churches and brightly painted timber houses in quintessential villages lost in time. Let our experienced tour managers and insightful guides lift the alluring veil of mystery over this fascinating country and its culture on a truly unforgettable cruise.
Return flights from a choice of regional airports, or travel by Eurostar, plus overseas return transfers to the ship.
Fascinating daily excursions led by knowledgeable local guides plus the services of a Riviera Travel cruise director and concierge.
All meals included from early risers' breakfasts to midnight snacks and everything in-between.
Spacious cabins and suites with en-suite bathrooms, river views and complimentary tea and coffee making facilities.
There’s no better way to explore the world’s largest country than on a Russian river cruise. Setting sail from Moscow on A Russian Odyssey Aboard the MS Rossia, passengers cruise in comfort along the meandering Volga river, then take a trip along the scenic river Svir, before arriving in beautiful St Petersburg.
