Trip Planner: Europe / Russia / Urals District / Sverdlovsk Oblast / Yekaterinburg / Ural Expeditions & Tours

We differ from other tourist firms, in that we offer travel to the entire region of the Ural Mountains, (central part of Russia), which stretch more than 2,000 kilometres, completely across Russia from south to north, and they are considered to be the boundary between Europe and Asia.
We specialize in service for foreign tourists, but all of our tours are certainly accessible to tourists from Russia and the countries of the CIS.
Our purpose is restoration and strengthening of a positive image of the Urals region abroad as a unique, natural, historical, ethnographic and tourist attraction. It’s location on the border between Europe and Asia provides a unique and unparalleled opportunity for our guests to observe all of the above.
This is a place to experience the merging of various natural-landscape zones and the blending of the historical and cultural ways of the local people. The city of Ekaterinburg, our base, is the historical and geographical centre of Urals. The environs of the city of Ekaterinburg, which was known as Sverdlovsk in the past, have a large and interesting concentration of many natural and architectural monuments. Our city is also a powerful transit logistical site, and a large industrial centre as well.
All of our specialists at «URAL EXPEDITIONS & TOURS» have completed their studies at the Sverdlovsk Mining Institute (specialty – geologists) and have experience working in extreme conditions, as well as in the organization of international (geological, ecological) expeditions in the Urals, Altai and Kamchatka.
We love our highland and know a lot of sights in the Urals and we are concerned with the ecological condition of some of them.
In our work we pay serious attention to protecting the Ural’s nature, the propagation of the care that relates to it, as well as ongoing ecological educational activities. We are taking part in public and international nature protection programs that we have organized to visit the many National Parks and Reserves in the Urals. During our ecological expeditions, you can see the contrast between areas that are absolutely untouched by the people of the area, and places where the ecosystem was damaged when the USSR existed. We are planning to make a few films, devoted to the nature of the Urals.

We have a three-day tour (PT - Irbit - Nizhny Tagil - EKB) busy with Ural teams had. Communicate in advance was good. Anyway we were not quite sure what awaits us. We were absolutely positively surprised. Our carriages were two or three years old and ran super, very good organization including catering, a perfect guide Vladimir and an equally perfect interpreter of Natascha. We have felt comfortable. Clear recommendation, again.
Very good location.
