About Us

Birch Grove Adventures is a small team of keen travelers, living the dream.

The founder is Craig Curphey, a New Zealander, who has lived in Russia for more than 20 years and travelled across much of the country by road. This company is about sharing the real Russia with others who want to experience the unusual in comfort.

Senior partner Marina Kupriyanova has great experience of organizing company VIP visits to Russia for multi-nationals, and takes care of our guests from booking to post tour feedback.

Our tour guides have been trained by us, and our partners carefully selected to provide an experience worth turning up for.

We personally check every hotel, attraction and supplier to ensure it fits with our deal and provides what we need in safety.

BGA is a registered tour operator in Russia.
