Birch Grove Adventures

Sharing the real Russia with you

Beyond Moscow and St Petersburg few people experience Russia. I am a New Zealander who has lived in Russia for the last 25 years, and along with like-minded people, we founded Birch Grove Adventures to share the real Russia with others.

We provide fully guided road adventures in small groups – up to 6 people. Our aim is to let you experience the real Russia in safety and comfort. Experience her contrasts, paradoxes, and beauty. Find out some of the history to explain the present.

Our adventures are on researched and established routes. We also offer some specialist themed activity holidays, like photo-tour, more active holidays, and extreme adventures and climate.

Our tours combine walking trails, historical sites, local attractions, cities, Russian village life. We stay at a mix of international chain hotels, local chains and local B&Bs. We have designed our tours to let you fully experience the real Russia.

Our team speak English, and know the local habits. We select our people and prepare them to make our tours exciting and interesting, while assessing and managing risks along the way. Our drivers have had defensive driving training, and we monitor all vehicle movements and driving styles via GPS.

The thing about Russia is that even on the same tour the experience can be different, but everyone is surprised daily. The people make it so. I hope to meet you soon and find out what you experienced.

Join us and enjoy the surprises.
