Russia River Cruising

Overview

Embark on an unforgettable adventure, making memories thatwill last a lifetime on one of our Russia river cruises.

Vast and proud, Russia is a land of rich tradition and contrast, a place where imperial cities intermingle with time-forgotten villages, and unique customs provide a fascinating glimpse into the past. From Moscow and St Petersburg to the idyllic water-side village of Mandrogi, Russia has much to offer the curious traveller, and you’ll experience its immersive highlights with a river cruise on the Volga River from Evergreen.

Recognised as the lifeblood of Russia, the river is affectionately known as Mother Volga, and holds the impressive title of Europe’s longest river. Half of Russia’s agriculture owes its success to the river and its tributaries, demonstrating the waterway’s important presence in this mighty nation.
