What our motorcycle tours are about

We travel in small groups of 4-5 people per one guide to ensure individual approach for your needs, safety and high quality of services. Everyday we ride approx. 250-300 km, in some tours there are several longer distance runs, but no more than 500 km per day. We think it's a good distance to see all the beauty we have to show you and not to get tired. We are planning our tours so that we make a stop every 2-3 hours in an interesting place to see the sights, relax, eat, drink, and just share your impressions of the ride.

Why we do it. Personal story of the company's founder

The story of Alexander Nikonov, one of the founders of Russian Moto Travel Company.

Solzhenitsyn writings

I have always loved reading for as long as I could remember. At some point I became interested in the works of A.I. Solzhenitsyn, read almost all his books, studied his biography, watched several interviews. In one of them he pondered, that we do not know the country we live in.

A very big country with beautiful, unspoiled nature and a huge legacy of many nations, which have coexisted here together for a long time. We have everything every other nation could wish for, but we do not notice this and are always looking and eager to go abroad.

We do not know the country we live in

During my life I have been in many parts of the world: surfed and practiced yoga in Bali, done Muay Thai in Thailand, met the dawns on the banks of the Bosphorus, walked on the emerald grass of Geneva, snowboarded in the French Alps. I know so much about other countries, but what do I know about my own country?

Saint Petersburg is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Karelia's nature is the same as in Norway or Finland. The Caucasus Mountains share many characteristics with the Alps, but their peaks are generally much taller and comparable in their beauty. Astrakhan and the Crimea, Plyos and the Altai, Lake Baikal and Kamchatka - there is so much beauty here to see, and how little of it we have seen.

Interviews with Solzhenitsyn made a strong impression on me and I decided to travel more all over Russia. I traveled to Karelia, Nizhny Novgorod, visited Valday, Sochi, Lipetsk and Voronezh, as well as the cities of the Golden Ring and the Moscow region. It have brought a lot of pleasant experiences!

Foreign interest

In September 2015 I went to Milan to see the city and have some vacations on Como Lake. There I saw hundreds of bikers from all over the world: there were guys from Israel, USA, Brazil, Iran, Italy, Germany, France, Romania, etc. While talking to different people I saw great interest in Russia: everyone asked, how we live in this great country, where they can go, what to see, how much it costs and who can arrange it.

In the evening upon returning to the hotel, I realized what I wanted to do.

To show what a beautiful country we live in

Thus the idea of Russian Moto Travel Company was born with its mission: to show everyone what an amazingly beautiful country we live in, with many nations and cultures, with a great historical heritage, with wonderful unspoiled nature and with kind helpful people.

Yes, indeed, for a long time there was not enough infrastructure in Russia for this kind of travel experience: there were no sufficient roads here, few good quality hotels, parks and museums were closed or were in poor condition. But now these problems are solved.

And now, we are pleased to offer you the most interesting tours through the best of Russia from Moscow to Karelia, Sochi, Crimea, Astrakhan and Kazan and also a set of special, theme tours to the Solovetsky Islands, the sites of World War II and to sporting events, for example to triathlon in Sochi.
