Freighters at night

A unique cruising adventure.

Freighter ships are the perfect way to enjoy a journey by sea at a more relaxed pace than the big cruise liners. You call into ports that others never see, you experience life on-board a cargo ship, mixing with the Captain and Officers every day. You can go onto the bridge to see your daily progress across the oceans of the world and enjoy being at sea without the distractions of conventional cruise ships and certainly not having to dress up for dinner! 



The Special Trans Siberian Rail.

For lovers of travel and lovers of railways alike the Trans Siberian Railway is an incredible passing panorama across a vast and dramatic landscape. Green and beautiful in summer and gloriously white in winter.

For any genuine traveller, travelling across the breadth of China, Mongolia and Russia on board the Trans Siberian or Mongolian Railways is a must. For sheer distance, intrigue and, on completion, the tremendous sense of real personal satisfaction, no other train journey comes anywhere near it.
