Trafalgar’s new Autumn Winter & Spring 2017/18 (AWS) programme features 34 itineraries including a new winter trip to Russia.
In response to guest feedback, the tour operator has introduced a new Christmas trip through Russia – the seven day Festive St Petersburg and Moscow.
This is the first time Russia has been featured in its AWS programme. With departures throughout December 2017, the trip begins in St Petersburg where guests visit iconic sights such as the Tsar’s Winter Palace, Nevsky Prospekt, St. Isaac’s Cathedral and the Hermitage Museum.
The journey continues in Moscow via high-speed train through scenic winter landscapes in rural Russia. Moscow’s annual Christmas festival includes grand scale ice rinks, snow sculptures and light installations. Prices start from £1,495 per person.
Trafalgar’s UK Sales and business development director, Ruth Hilton said:
“With its roasted chestnuts, steaming hot chocolate and sparkling Christmas trees, there really is no better place in the world to experience a winter wonderland than Europe! Each carefully crafted Trafalgar itinerary features authentic experiences and moments of magic to make it easy for travellers to discover the festive flavours and allure of European destinations outside of the peak summer months. We want to ensure agents can sell this season effortlessly and offer their customers memorable moments combined with unbeatable prices, and we’re confident our enhanced product offering will deliver on this.”
Itineraries such as Great Italian Cities, Best of Greece and Prague, Vienna & Budapest gives guests the opportunity to experience Europe’s cities during its transition in to the cooler and quieter months.
