10-DAY Russiamoto Russia motorcycle tour

$4,199

Russia is huge and Russia has thousands of years of history. A melting pot of local tribes and native klans mixed with people descending from the Chinese, Mongols, European and Nordic people. So to try and pretend we’d cover Russia on a 10 day tour would be nonsense. Instead we have chosen to focus our Russia tour on the ride between the impressive and important cultural and historic centers – Moscow and Saint Petersborg – as they are the perfect introduction to Russia..
