About us

Immersion in Russia is a startup based in Moscow working to rethink the way to travel in Russia. 

Nous proposons une nouvelle offre de voyages, l’immersion, dans une destination encore très peu explorée : la Russie.


Le tourisme d’immersion c’est ....


Le transport : écologique, le train, en général le transsibérien car il  permet de s'immerger complètement dans la culture russe.


L’aventure : Découvrir des régions ou des sites extraordinaires, souvent peu connus et la plupart du temps difficiles d’accès par ses propres moyens.

Les rencontres avec les locaux : partager une tranche de vie, et ressentir les différences mais également les similitudes qui existent  avec des populations qui vivent si loin de nous et dans des contextes si différents.

L’apprentissage : La compréhension pour le voyageur de son environnement et des enjeux qui existent dans les lieux que nous visitons et pour les population qui y vivent.

Our values

Immersion in Russia is a startup founded by a Russian-French team sharing the same astonishment towards the immense eurasian territory, culture, and population living there. We have a strong desire to promote tourism in these regions with respect for environment and local traditions.


That is why Immersion in Russia proposes a new way to travel. We have decided to benefit from the existing railway network, in the region, one of the longest track in the world being the Trans-Siberian railway. This type of transportation guarantees authentic travel and low impact on the environment.


We are committed to participate in the reduction of environmental impact that has been created by mass tourism damaging natural resources and the planet, and bring a more authentic travel in the same time, at a lower price. 


This approach led us to rethink the concept of travel where the means of transport become a part of the whole journey, a part of the fun. It allows the traveler to dive into cultures and traditions, meet with locals, and take time to observe the evolution and diversity of landscapes while moving forward.  

We want to bring Russia to a greater number respecting the environment for a more sensible tourism. Whether it is in big cities or in regions, our goal is to show you what Russia has best to offer.

Immersive travel is a concept allowing travelers to really feel deeply authenticity with locals and understand further Russian culture, history and language.

Guilhem BOIVIN graduated with a double French-Russian Master degree from Sciences Po Bordeaux and the Russian University of People’s Friendship with a specialization in economies and law from former soviet countries.

Set aside his academic and professional background in finance and experiences in Ernst & Young and Subsea 7, Frederic has always had a keen interest in traveling and learning new languages. The disproportionate geography and the fact that most of it still remains greatly unknown to foreigners are certainly the key elements that attracted him to Russia. Having travelled in more than 60 countries, Fred decided to settle in Russia, and explore this amazing country through the lens of his camera. Learning Russian and sharing his experiences have always been some of his priorities after he decided to move in.
