Join Svetlana Ehrhart, a native of St. Petersburg, Russia, who will be your hostess and trip leader. Svetlana worked as a tour guide for 12 years in St. Petersburg.

This trip is a unique combination of a great cultural experience and easy hiking activity.
We'll start our journey in St. Petersburg, which was the capital of Russia from 1712-1918. We'll explore the main museums in the city, like the Hermitage and the former summer residences of the czars. These are surrounded by gorgeous parks where we will hike. We will also visit a typical apartment and dacha of today.

We'll then take a night train to Moscow, the capital from 1340-1712 and 1918-present. We'll visit famous Red Square, the Kremlin, and other well-known sites.

Late in the evening, we'll go to Suzdal, which was the capital of a small Russian principality in the 12th century. It's a small town with a lot of ancient churches and monasteries, and will afford some pleasant rural hiking. We'll return to Moscow and stay overnight before our departure to the U.S.

Hiking will be level A-B; the number of participants between 10 and 15. The trip cost covers all ground transportation, all lodging, some meals, park and museum admissions, cost for letter of invitation to enter Russia and visa, gratuities, leader expenses, CMC fee.

Cost does not cover air fare to/from Russia, trip and health insurance, airline baggage fees, some meals, bar tab, souvenir purchases, taxi from and to the airport.
