Overland Travel in Russia

For those who enjoy driving long distances and rough camping, put Russia on your road-trip bucket list! Drive through Russia’s vast and wild wilderness of taiga and marshland, and across mountains to explore and wild camp along Lake Baikal. Challenge yourself on dirt roads and take ferries to reach the city of Yakutsk. Enjoy a spectacular road trip through Russia’s Far East, where 4×4 challenges await you as well as Vladivostok’s pleasant hustle and bustle. How do you get to Vladivostok when coming from Japan or South Korea?

Overlanding in a Siberian Winter

Only partly prepared we head for the Siberian Winter that starts early October. Driving in snow and on ice became part of the routine.

Windshield Views from the Far East (Russia)

Hop in the Land Cruiser, buckle up and enjoy the windshield views of Russia’s Far East as if you are behind the wheel or riding shotgun. Can you feel the energy of the trusty diesel coming to life at the turning of the key? Enjoy the ride – we have some 2,000 kilometers to go.

Sightseeing in Vladivostok

Another pleasant surprise on our journey and we wished we had more time to stay and explore. For one day we made the best of sightseeing in Vladivostok.

Feeling Welcome in Vladivostok

Vladivostok: from a new, flashy and organized airport into maddening traffic, but most of all into the welcoming home of new friends.

The Falaza Trail Run (Russia)

A one-week visit to Vladivostok includes train ride to the countryside where Coen will run his first marathon trail run in the Falaza Mountains.
