The Golden Eagle Train

This is undoubtedly one of the greatest railway journeys in the world and one of the best ways to absorb the rich culture and sprawling landscapes on offer in Central Asia's rarely visited interior.


Take a Trans-Siberian journey on board the luxury Golden Eagle Train, 20 years since the very first Trans-Siberian Express Tour which covered over 13,000km's and was completed exclusively using steam. Journey through Russia, Europe, Central Asia and China, combining first class service with exploration. 

Life on Board

The Golden Eagle offers some of the finest accommodation available in luxury train travel today. Each cabin offers a high level of comfort with en-suite facilities. Personal cabin assistants are available for your every need, around the clock.

There are three cabin categories.

Imperial Suites being the most spacious, with a king size bed. When booking the Imperial Suite benefit from a private guide and driver for sightseeing along the way and complimentary bar drinks during the journey, amongst other additions. Power showers and underfloor heating as standard.

Gold Cabins may have standard double beds or bunk style beds, with some drinks in the bar taken as complimentary. There is a power shower and underfloor heating throughout.

The Silver Cabins sleep offer smaller double beds or bunk style bed. 


All journeys feature up to two restaurant cars and a spacious bar car. The Bar Lounge is the central heart of the train. A game of cards pre-dinner, or perhaps try a Russian language lesson. Lectures on local history and culture from expert speakers happen in this social space. Post dinner there is a resident pianist to add to the ambience.

Informal dress code is welcomed throughout.

Why we like it 

There has never been a better time to experience the world's greatest railway journey between Moscow and Vladivostok.
