Travel Itinerary and Road Trip Route

Day 1: Active recreation

Today we have a plan to visit the farm where they grow alpacas. After that we will go towards the national park "Zavidovo", where we will be able to try not only unusual extreme sports, but also just relax on the lake shore and do some fishing.

Пончики из детства

Before we begin our unforgettable journey, we need a proper refreshment. For breakfast, I offer delicious pastries.

Ferma "Rossiyskiye Al'paki"

Here we will be charged with positive emotions for the whole day and get to know such an amazing animal as alpaca. Before you travel, read more about the farm services. As they provide both group and individual visits. It is also worth noting that individual visits are only possible on weekdays.

Mamma Italia

We'll have lunch and go on the road. There's plenty more to look forward to!

Акватория лета

A unique multi-sport entertainment complex that includes all formats of active recreation. Here you can try it: wakeboarding, wakesurfing and even windsurfing. You can find a detailed price for all services on the official website.

Рыбалка "Завидово"

The day was full of events, it's time for some rest! You can even go fishing.


I offer dinner in a quiet atmosphere by the lake. Here you will find the most helpful waiters and the most varied menu.

Day 2: Interesnye places on the Volga river

Our journey continues, the morning is the best time for outdoor walks. Further I suggest to have a rest on the bank of the Volga river and look at the bell tower, which is located on a difficult island.


Since we are far away from civilization, finding a good cafe open at 9 a.m. is a bit difficult. I suggest we visit the local supermarket and buy something to eat.

Ямской лес

We'll start the day with a long walk in the woods. Let's get some fresh air and enjoy the scenery.

Пляж на Мысе

It would be a crime not to visit the Volga at this time!


We will have lunch and go to the main attraction of today - the Kalyazinskaya bell tower.

Колокольня Никольского собора

There are many legends about her, but it's better to see her once than hear a hundred times about her. The bell tower stands on an artificial island and periodically goes underwater. The Kalyazin Bell Tower is the main symbol of Kalyazin and attracts many tourists.

Угличское водохранилище

Another great place to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. The water reservoir was created in 1939 in connection with the construction of a hydroelectric power plant in Uglich.


It's been an interesting day. It's time for dinner! Great interior with a fireplace and color lighting, and the prices do not bite.

Day 3: Plesheevo Lake National Park

I suggest breakfast at the hotel to save time. Today we will admire the views of Lake Nero, visit the holy spring and try one interesting sport.


Driving past Rostov, it would be a crime not to enjoy the views of Lake Nero, or as it was called in ancient times - "Rostov Sea". Despite the fact that the passage to the lake lies through the city, it is not very crowded, and the most beautiful views can be seen if you drive up from the Spaso-Yakovlevsky monastery.

Gazpromneft filling station #9

There's a gas station coming up. If you are tired, make a comfortable stop - come for a coffee!

Варварин Ключ

It's a quiet and beautiful place. The spring was named after St. Barbara the Great Martyr, who lived in Phoenicia in the 16th century. It is believed that the water from the spring is pure, enriched with silver and has healing properties.

Плещеево озеро

A lake in the south-west of Russia's Yaroslavl Region, part of the Plesheevo Lake National Park. The national park itself was created for the purpose of preservation of the unique natural-historical complex in the region of Pereslavl-Zalessky.

Блины от Берендея

How about some local pancakes for lunch? It'll be delicious!


We tried extreme types of tourism on the first day. But why not go to another interesting place on the way to Moscow and appreciate such a sport as a flyboard! If you make up your mind, make an appointment in advance! You can find all the contacts on the official website.

Бакинский бульвар

Our last stop is before Moscow. We'll have dinner and go home!
