Winter road trip in Russia
(From St. Petersburg to Moscow)
Russian winter is harsh, but amazingly beautiful!
We invite you on a self-drive tour across the snow-coated woods of the Russian North.
The scenery is magical: knee-deep snow, lakes and rivers shackled with ice and frost, and white-patterned windows. The cold first comes in November and ends by April at best.
We offer you to take the most out of the winter drive with the great UAZ Patriot, perfectly suited for such tough conditions, specifically designed to endure difficult weather and Russian winter roads. While you check your driving skills our experienced crew is always at your side to ensure comfort and safety, no matter if it’s a highway or winding off-road trail in the woods.
We’ve made our best to fit the most fabulous winter activities in this tour, including dog-sledding, horse-sledding and tubing down ice slides. We’ll try ice-skating, will play snowballs, and try cross-country skiing. We highly recommend you to take warm clothing and shoes, thick mittens and wool scarves.
Lots of hot beverages and hearty food will be provided. We will also have a fair amount of motion to keep warm when outside! It will definitely be a journey full of adventures. Make sure to participate in ice-fishing or a dive in the immensely cold water.
Some pleasant surprises remain to be revealed: See the most incredible traditional architecture in Kizhi Island with its unique open-air collection of wooden churches. Enjoy ethnic shows with customary food treats, songs and dance and immerse yourselves in a real winter fairy tale!
