Tour Itinerary

Finland, Belarus, Poland, Germany - we weren't lying when we said Russia "plus". Cathedrals, charming old towns and endless history abound on this 12-day extravaganza firing up in Helsinki. Ramp up your trip with experiences like the Russian Ballet and a Chopin piano recital in Warsaw, or just get your culture fix from the comfort of a local bar.

Day 1 - Arrive Helsinki
Hyvää huomenta, or as we know it, good morning Helsinki! As you arrive in the Finnish capital, you're no doubt buzzing with the anticipation of what lies ahead. Vodka and tales of days gone by are going to explode before your eyes on this trip through Russia and it's neighbours. Start out with some off the track exploring, stopping to sample local delicacies, because exploring is done best when heading out of the comfort zone. Kaalikääryleet – cabbage rolls, Hernekeitto pea soup, are what the locals dig around here, so find a spot and start ticking them off your list. Tonight, meet up with the crew to chat about what lies in store, then get out there, get ready, and let's do this!

Day 2 - Helsinki to St. Petersburg
Now that you have 20 new Finnish friends and a whole new outlook on this totally underrated European capital, it's Russia time.Our first stop on the Russian map is the imperial city of St. Petersburg. Built by the Italians, this city is a unique blend of Europe and Russia, unfathomably grand & made pretty by canals - which you can opt to explore tonight for the best view of the city's palaces by night. You'll be pleased to hear we have 2 full days to uncover its enigmatic ways.
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 3 - St. Petersburg
Today is a full dose of history, learn about the Romanov's and its founding by Tsar Peter the Great as well as all the goss on the Tsar's of Russia. See one of the world’s top art collections at the Hermitage gallery; kick it in St. Petersburg’s main street of Nevsky Prospekt; find ways to tap into glitzy new Russia; and enjoy history lessons at the city's incredible list of monuments. And all that exploring could call for a beef stroganoff where it was invented, as well as a vodka or 2 - in the name of culture, of course.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 4 - St. Petersburg
Visit Peterhof Gardens, known as the Versailles of Russia will give you an outdoor lovers fix, including a beautiful gold fountain cascade. Use the rest of the day to take on the city, and tonight, you could choose to go local with folklore show for some sights and sounds of Russia.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 5 - St. Petersburg to Novgorod
So long St. Petersburg! Thanks for your hospitable welcome into the world of Russia. You've left us wanting a whole lot more.Now that we've got a taste of Russian city life, it's time to change the pace and step into the quieter town of Novgorod. Suffering two unfortunate eras at the hands of evil dictators, the town is now enjoying its time of slow life and peace. Soak up its new found happiness and explore its epic history - complete with a very large bell.
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 6 - Novgorod to Moscow via Klin
After being submerged in small town feels, we'll be quite ready for the grandeur capital of Moscow. Time to hit the road!En route to Moscow we'll stop off in Klin, home of Russian composer Tchaikovsky. We can't resist the chance to see the place that inspired a man to make Swan Lake and The Nutcracker.Before you go screaming your way to the Aladdin's palace like monument of Saint Basil's Cathedral, let us settle in to our Moscow digs and hear of the many incredible things this city has on offer - and there are many. Hence we have two full days here - joy!!
Meals: Breakfast

Day 7 - Moscow
Oh good morning Moscow. Diving right in is the way to do it, so we'll start off with a guided city tour of all the sights, including one of the countries most colourful and quirky buildings St Basil's Cathedral.Chance to visit Lenin’s tomb followed by free time to explore more of what Red Square and this city have to offer.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 8 - Moscow
After the underground, probably the most famous metro in the world is Moscow's. Get up close with our local guide, uncovering the fascinating communist artworks that make it what it is today. The city keeps on giving today, with some free time to roam, before a guided visit to the famous Kremlin Museums, then the option to view the Romanov’s collection of Faberge Eggs, carriages, clothes and jewels at the Armoury.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 9 - Moscow to Minsk
Moscow to Minsk, how's that for a cute sounding journey? Though it will be hard to leave Russia, the lure of Belarus will help ease the pain.Rebuilt by Stalin after World War II, Minsk has become a model of communism & a statement of resilience. Manicured gardens and pretty water features spot the wide open spaces of the city; a great place to sit back and chill.
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 10 - Minsk to Warsaw via Brest
Laters Minsk, we have one more country to cover before this epic road trip comes to an end. Poland, we're coming for you!Before we head on to energetic Warsaw, we'll visit one of the most important Soviet World War II war monuments; the castle like monument of Brest fortress.Perogies are Polish dumplings and a glass of compote somewhere within Warsaw's lively cafe scene should be your introduction to this emerging European capital. We have all day tomorrow to explore, so there's no need to start whipping through the to-do list.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 11 - Warsaw
You didn't think we were winding down now, did you? Gosh no. Not when we have an old Jewish Ghetto to explore and a Chopin piano recital up for grabs. A renowned musical city, keep your ears open day long and see what sound pleasures you stumble upon.
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 12 - Depart Warsaw
That's it for our extravaganza through Scandinavia and Russia. By now you will be pulsating with new knowledge & forever memories.

Hygiene and Safety Protocols for Contiki Tours

Contiki has introduced these enhanced hygiene protocols – for you and team members.

You can travel with Contiki and be assured that their team has put numerous new measures in place to elevate their hygiene standards and protocols. The well-being of guests and team has always been, and always will be, their primary concern.

In this new, fast changing Covid-19 era, Contiki is doing all they can to adapt to new requirements and expectations. Here are some important new steps and procedures that they have implemented to enhance hygiene protocols, to comply with physical distancing requirements by relevant government authorities and to give you the peace of mind when you are traveling during these new times.

Expertly Trained Travel Directors

Travel Director training equips them with enhanced hygiene and physical distancing procedures. During your trip, they will operate with a duty of care and monitor the hygiene etiquette of the guests, reacting and advising as needed, to ensure high standards are maintained. Before you travel, Contiki will also keep you well informed about new protocols required in these areas, and ask that you cooperate with and heed the advice and direction of Travel Directors while on your trip. The Travel Directors have preventative measures in place to try and ensure your well-being and in the event that any unexpected issues arise on trip, they will activate additional protocols.

Stringent On-the-Road Protocols

The customized luxury coaches are sanitised before the start of your trip and have always been kept to very high standards. Following the outbreak of COVID-19, Contiki have taken additional measures to elevate hygiene and sanitary practices in accordance with guidance from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and as required, applicable government regulations. The Driver training provides them with the latest hygiene protocols. They will clean and disinfect all surfaces including handrails, door handles, tables, seats, air-conditioning filters and overhead lockers on a daily basis. All the guests are asked to follow hygiene practices recommended by the World Health Organisation including the thorough and regular washing of hands and sanitising when required. Hand sanitiser is freely available on board for your use throughout the day. Please bring your own washable face mask and gloves with you, and additional hand sanitiser to make you feel comfortable, as these will be required to be worn in public in some countries. Should an unexpected situation arise, additional face masks, rubber gloves, antiviral sprays and wipes will be available for guest distribution on all trips.

A Full Team of Support 24/7

It’s not just your Travel Director and Driver who will be taking care of you. Behind the scenes, the operations and guest support teams are in contact with them and on call 24/7, so you can rest assured that you’re in good hands.

Physical Distancing

Adapting to the right size groups, based on government distancing requirements, you can rest assured that you will travel with the comfort of your own personal space. Have peace of mind that all of the experiences, hotels and restaurants you’ll enjoy on your trip have been vetted to ensure they adhere to physical distancing and hygiene guidelines.

Trusted Partners, Exceptional Standards

Contiki is very selective in who they work with and choose to only use hotels, restaurants, ground handlers and venues that take the well-being of the guests as seriously as Contiki does and agrees to meet expected guidelines and specifications. Contiki only works with establishments that they are confident will consistently adhere to their high standards.

Always in the Know

As part of The Travel Corporation (TTC) , Contiki is kept up to date with all government advisories and travel alerts on a daily basis and is continually in touch with all of the partners on the ground in each destination. Also, rest assured that during your trip, the teams work to ensure the supplier partners (hotels, restaurants, museums and other venues) are also applying the same standard to these new hygiene and distancing protocols, to the extent possible.

Questions & Answers

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

Ratings based off 59 reviews about Contiki Tours - currently showing 4 reviews with comments only

Prepare to spend more than usual on a Contiki tour.

We were lucky that the group of people with were good, but it was a large group tour and did have some of the downfalls of a trip of that nature, like frequent breaks for the bathroom, difficulty when eating out together, and getting things on and off the coach. The trip was still great and a good value for the money.

It was a good value and the experiences included were worth it. The only part that wasn't the best were the accommodations as it was hit and miss. Half of the hotels on the trip were okay, and the other half were really nice.
