Plan Your Trip
Russia is a country rich in history and culture, natural wonders and opportunity. The Russian Far East is no exception. This vast area stretches between the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Lake Baikal in the West to the volcanoes of the Kamchatka peninsula in the East. Rare Amur tigers and leopards inhabit the boreal forests between Vladivostok and Khabarovsk. The region’s abundant natural resources – timber, fish, minerals, and oil – are exported throughout the world. But a rewarding trip begins with good planning. Travel to Russia involves many regulations and restrictions unfamiliar to the Western traveler, such as visas, migration cards, registration, and Russia-specific customs regulations.
