U3A - Cruise Along the Volga September 2018


Possibly an 8/10 day River Cruise along the Volga river, canals and lakes from Moscow to St Petersburg.


Visit such places as: St Petersburg, Lake Ladoga, Mandrogi (a traditional village), Lake Onega, Kizhi Island, City of Yaroslav, Uglich and Moscow.


This is only a sketch of the places and sites we may visit.


The cost will be approx 1,800 / 2,500. Until I know an approx number of people interested, I cannot get more specific details.

Time of Cruise, September 2018


There are only a small number of travel companies that offer this cruise and the river boats are small, carrying at the most 100 / 130 people.


If we are interested, it will need to be booked, probably before Christmas.


Anybody interested please contact me:
