Tracking Eastern Siberia, From Tomsk to Tyumen, Russia (7 days)

Itinerary

DAY LOCATION(S) HOTEL MEALS DESCRIPTION
Day 1
Tomsk, Russia
None Dinner

Waste no time in departing for the ancient Siberian city of Tomsk, a three-and-a-half hour car journey away from the tour’s starting point of Novosibirsk. There’s a chance for a traditional lunch in a quaint tavern restaurant before embarking on a four-hour city tour of Tomsk; highlights include trips to the famous observation area, an unusual eco-park, a monastery, Monument to Chekhov, Epiphany Cathedral and the memorial museum.

Day 2
Novosibirsk, Russia
None Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

 After a busy first day in Tomsk, day two takes on a more relaxed feel. The morning is free for you to explore the beautiful town center at your own pace, and in the afternoon the tour heads back to Novosibirsk to check in for the night.

Day 3
Omsk, Russia
None Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Swap four wheels for the train, and depart along the famous Trans-Siberian route to the city of Omsk. The total time on the tracks is seven hours, but as you’ll be setting off early in the morning, there will be plenty of time left to explore the city upon arrival in the afternoon. Visits around the town go to St. Nicolay Cossack Military Church, the Concert Hall of Omsk, Governor’s Palace, The Dormition Dome, the Old Fortress and the day’s tour will wind up at the Cossack Market where you can see the old wooden houses of Omsk.

Day 4
Achair, Russia
None Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After exploring the city yesterday, it’s time to venture into the spectacular Omsk countryside on this fourth day. Two options are available, both of which present their own historical and cultural merits. Either take a full day tour to Blumenfeld or to Achair and Azovo - both reachable in a private car from Omsk city (around two hours away).

Day 5
Tyumen, Russia
None Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Jump back on the train again, departing Omsk for Tyumen, which dates back to 1586 and was the first-ever Russian city in Siberia. It’s quite a journey, and the train won’t roll into town until the evening, leaving you plenty of time to relax on board to admire the spectacular evolving landscape from your window. Check in to the hotel and enjoy an evening dinner in Tyumen.

Day 6
Tobolsk, Russia
None Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Wake up bright and early to enjoy an initial city tour of Tyumen on what is the penultimate day of your tour. After visiting some of the city’s key attractions, depart for Tobolsk (around 4 hours away) - with lunch and a visit to the private village museum of Grigori Rasputin along the way. Upon arrival in Tobolsk, relax in your hotel before enjoying dinner and an evening city tour of Tobolsk.

Day 7
Tyumen, Russia
None Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Further last-minute visits around Tobolsk can be made in the morning of this final day, with recommended stops to the magnificent stone Kremlin, a bone-carving art workshop of Min Salim Timergaseev, and Abalakskiy Monastery near the village of Abalak. Dinner is included before an evening return to Tyumen, which is where this week-long tour of Eastern Siberia comes to an end.

Description

This handcrafted week-long trip through Eastern Siberia takes you to some of the region’s best-known sights and cities, although there’s ample opportunity to escape the beaten path and uncover some true hidden gems. After arrival in Novosibirsk, you’ll be whisked away for one day in Tomsk, before heading on to the ancient city of Omsk, where you’ll spend two days exploring both the urban and rural sides of this historic place. Watch as the incredible Siberian landscape evolves along the way, as you make your way cross-country via both car and rail - on the famous Trans-Siberian rail route. The trip winds down with a city tour of Tobolsk, eventually ending up in Tyumen, over 800 miles away from your original starting point.

The Remote Lands Guides were excellent. The cars used for transportation were roomy and clean. The hotels were 5 star and their attention to detail was over the top. There was only perfection from the people we met and it was also comforting to know that our trip was being carefully monitored by Remote Lands supervisors every step of the way. We would recommend Remote Lands to anyone needing exceptional service in Asia.
