Following Russia's invasion of Ukraine last week, tour operators have canceled trips to both countries.
All 2022 departures of its Russian Glories, Baltic Treasures tour have been cancelled. That itinerary included Lithuania and Latvia, plus Finnish capital Helsinki and Russian cities St. Petersburg and Moscow. Also, Tauck has removed St. Petersburg as a call in its St. Petersburg & the Baltic Sea small-ship cruise itinerary.
The Russia specialist has canceled group tours that include Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and Moldova in the near term. That includes Russian rail trips. Trips to other destinations in the region, such as the countries of the South Caucasus, are scheduled to operate as planned.
The operator had trips scheduled for Russia and Ukraine throughout 2022, and has decided to move these trips to future dates. The company is not currently booking trips to Russia and Ukraine.
In addition to canceling all tours in Russia, the company said it has stopped accepting bookings from Russian travel agencies and will not welcome Russian nationals residing in Russia as guests on its trips.
The company said it has canceled tours in Russia and withdrawn from all other business interests in Russia "in support of freedom and a peaceful resolution."
This report was updated on March 4 to add that Collette has canceled Russia tours.
