13 Day Infinity & Beyond: Russian Cosmonaut Adventure

Since time immemorial, the stars have captivated us. So tantalizingly close, yet so far beyond our grasp, space was humankind’s last impenetrable frontier. And then, after millennia of striving, one of our own breached the heavens at last and crossed into the Great Beyond. The legacy of Yuri Gagarin, the pioneering Soviet cosmonaut and humanity’s first spaceman, still inspires today. The stars are within reach at last. And you – yes, you – can reach them yourself.

This exclusive Explorers Club Collection adventure gets you as close to outer space as you can get without a rocket. After exploring Moscow by day and by night, you’ll be taken to Star City, the one-time top-secret facility north of the capital where Soviet and Russian cosmonauts took their first steps towards the stars. At this historic spot, you’ll undergo a battery of endurance tests and evaluations, experience simulated space travel, try on a spacesuit, sample authentic cosmonaut cuisine, and dine with one of the Russian space program’s veterans before journeying to the very edge of the cosmos on a zero-gravity sub-orbital space flight. Back on Earth, you’ll then be whisked away to Kazakhstan, home of the Baikonur Cosmodrome, where you’ll take an extensive guided tour of the facility before settling in to watch an actual launch. The stars are within reach at last. Come with us and cross the threshold of heaven itself.

The Explorers Club Collection by Kensington Tours is an exclusive suite of travel experiences inspired by the expeditions of the world’s foremost society of scientists and adventurers. Each tailor-made Explorers Club trip connects you to the world’s most fascinating people, places, and experiences with expert local guides and award-winning 24/7 service support.
