This route will help you get acquainted with hiking culture and allow you to enjoy the natural beauty of the Krasnodar region for two days in a row, combining the charms of active recreation with the benefits of civilization! Two green gorges and the sights of Tuapse are already waiting for you!
Today we will visit Akhintam Park, Svir gorge and take a walk in Tuapse. Tip: you will spend about three hours in Svir gorge, so it is worth taking a comfortable closed shoe, stock up on water and something for a small snack.
Our journey will begin with a short walk through Akhintam Park. From here you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Shah river valley!
We have a long hiking route ahead of us, so it's worth eating well. Cafe Kasha, located very close to the Svirsky Gorge, will be ideal.
Svir gorge is famous for its beautiful waterfalls and high rocks, be sure to visit the waterfall "Adam and Eve" and dolmens. The length of the route is 9.5 km, but it is not necessary to reach the end point.
So we made it to Tuapse. While it's still light outside, you can walk the pretty streets and buy ice cream :)
But in the evening you can really relax on the sofa of the grill restaurant and treat yourself to delicious dishes.
After dinner, you should take an evening promenade and stop by the waterfront.
And look at the singing fountains down the street before going to a hotel.
On the second day of the trip you will have a picnic in nature, visit the wild beach and Kiselev Rock, as well as walk along Volkonsky Gorge. Tip: you should take a blanket to sit comfortably on the picnic.
In the morning you will need to go to a grocery store and buy breakfast products in the countryside.
Cape Kadosh is a not crowded place with crystal clear water. This is where we will have an early picnic!
The rocks near this beach are covered with small openings similar to rodent houses. That's where the funny name comes from. This is where we stop for a swim and sunbathing.
From the beach you can easily reach the most picturesque attraction of the day - Kiselev Rocks. Ships full of tourists come here quite often, but it does not spoil the view from the cliffs.
We'll have lunch in a quiet boiled house in town and go further.
While walking along this gorge you can see a waterfall resembling a figure of a young girl, the grotto "Two Brothers", a mysterious dolmen and a relict plant of the Caucasus - boxwood.
We recommend dinner at "On the Edge of the Earth" restaurant. To get here, you will need to move from a direct route in Sochi, but you will not regret it. From the veranda of this restaurant offers just an incredible view of the mountains and the river Shahe.
