More Info

Russia (officially called Russian Federation) is the largest country in the world, stretching over Eastern Europe and Northern Asia. St Petersburg and Moscow are the most visited cities of a country famous for so many things, from Orthodox churches to literature, vodka and ballet. Once the epicenter of the Russian Revolution and part of the Soviet Union, Russia has a strong revolutionary history, which can be traced on the country’s imposing modernist buildings, historical museums and iconic landmarks like the Moscow Red Square. The extensive Russian territory ranges from the mountainous and culturally-rich Caucasus region, to the remote and extremely cold Siberia. Looking for off-the-beaten-track adventures? Russia is the place to visit!

 

 

 

Good to Know

 

What’s the weather like?

Most of the country has long and harsh winters, with very low temperatures. Siberia has registered the coldest temperatures in the world. Summers are short, as well as spring and fall. From May to July, St Petersburg experiences a unique phenomenon known as ‘white nights’: daylight extends for almost 24hs.

Getting there

Most international airlines fly to Moscow and St. Petersburg. By train, you can reach Russia from many European cities like Berlin, Paris, Helsinki, Prague, Budapest and Warsaw, among others. Bus is a cheaper option, but it takes longer than the train. Keep in mind that (except for some countries) you may need to apply to a Russian Visa before your trip.

It was great to be with Ivan. Above all, I came through him in an area that I otherwise would not have been able to travel. He really took good care of everything and I learned a lot. DychTau is a mountain that demands a lot from the beginning to the end!

Ivan is a master of his craft. His knowledge, instincts and skills are of the highest quality. He is the best guide I\'ve ever climbed with and when I return to Russia, I\'ll be climbing with him again. Also, his character is also of the highest quality, he is responsible, smart, and incredibly professional in every aspect. When you\'re doing something risky (like climbing a mountain), he\'s the exact person you need with you. I\'d climb with him anywhere, any weather any time of year.

Ivan is a more than competent guide and a cool guy to know. He is thoughtful about his guests needs and treats their limitations with tact by ever providing both helpful feedback and encouragement. Last but not least his mashed potato recipe is to die for!

Everything was just perfect. Our local Guide Sergey showed us the best spots with really nice descends in amazing powder. His hut was very cute and our cook Tonja did a great job. Everything was just perfect. A dream came true. Thanks Sergey for the perfect guiding.
