The vast territory and rich natural resources allow Russia creating more and more opportunities for active tourism every year. The number of those who want to change the usual beach and sightseeing holidays to something more extreme is steadily growing, as this is a great way to believe in your abilities and gain invaluable experience.

 Active tours are always an exciting journey that will be remembered for a lifetime.

Hiking in the southern mountains, rafting on the turbulent rivers of Karelia, horseback riding, tours to Baikal, ski tours and even hiking on skis – so many options to choose. The only important thing is that active tours are always an exciting journey that will remain in your memory.

The financial side also turns out to be attractive: after all, traveling with a backpack behind you does not require huge cash spending.

Active tourism involves a fairly long stay in the fresh air, rest in tents, living in campsites, so you should get ready for some household inconveniences.
 
Geography of active recreation in Russia
 
It is impossible to cover the entire geography of Russian active recreation. In the Krasnodar Territory, hiking trips around the mountain resort Khadzhokh are popular. Tourists take part in rafting on mountain rivers, are engaged in trekking, visit Rufabgo Waterfalls, Aminovskoe Gorge, Azish Cave, and Belaya River Canyon
 
Do not worry about  physical abilities. For active recreation it is not necessary to be a professional athlete.
 
You will get fantastic experience choosing water trips in Karelia and the Urals, rafting on catamarans along the Ural rivers -the Zilim, the Belaya, the Nugush, horse trips in the South Urals. Lovers of hiking routes should choose Altai; hiking is also widely developed in Kamchatka, on Sakhalin and on the Kuriles. Those who are not looking for trodden paths and are not afraid of weather surprises should check the tours to Elbrus, and lovers of pristine nature will surely remember the conquest of Mount Thach located on the border of the Krasnodar Territory and the Republic of Adygea. The mountain range Thach is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Opportunities for winter outdoor activities 


By the way, in winter, active holidays in Russia are no less popular. Adherents of skiing will conquer Karelia: the ski route to Kizhi passes through Karelian forests, colorful villages with unique monuments of architecture of Ancient Russia, and the snow-covered shores of Lake Onega.

Horse-sleigh rides in the Urals will acquaint you with the amazing nature of this region. The most popular routes of these trips are laid along the ridges of the Kraka-Tau ridge and the banks of the Kaga and Agidel rivers.
