What you'll do

In the morning you will meet in the center of Moscow to start your tour. We will go by minibus to Sergiyev Posad, well-known as an Orthodox Vatican. The owner of the place we will visit, Sergey, will welcome you as soon as you arrive. Then in authentic horse-sleds you will be taken deep inside the snow-covered woods to the barbecue place. After a quick ride, you will arrive at a wonderful location covered in white snow, with fresh air and a warm fireplace where you learn how cook traditional Russian “Shashlik” (meat sticks) yourself and taste champagne and vodka. There is nothing better after such a lunch, than to play traditional Russian games, for example, rope pulling, battle of straw sacks on a log, sawing the log for speed and, more than that, tubing from the hillside. In addition to this program, we will enjoy a Russian Folklore Show (authentic Russian music performance with accordion, performed by locals). While some people spend their time drinking and having in the woods, other have the opportunity to go on a 20-minute rides across the stunning forest covered with snow. After this program, we will go back to Moscow in the afternoon by minibus again.

Your hosts

With my friend Pavel, we proposed to a local agency to develop a new part of their business : propose genuine local experiences to tourists in Russia. Because tourism is changing, and people are looking for unique memories, we wanted to propose off-the-beaten-track experiences. I'm from France, and I live in Russia for 5 years now, and Pavel is a native of Moscow. We combined our knowledge of what people are looking for when coming in Russia, and what this country has to offer. Working in the tourism industry for 5+ years, Pavel has the best contact list in both Moscow and St. Petersburg. Thanks to all this, we are now able to propose you tours to hidden husky kennels, to organize traditional Russian picnics in the nature, to invite you for French-Russian dinners in our home in Moscow, or to visit St. Petersburg in a kayak.
