During this trip you'll take uncharted trails by car, ride with the breeze on Husky and find an abandoned American village. The endless Lake Ladoga and many small lakes in the region await you. You can also feel "in the skin" of a miner mining quartz sand and you'll be heated in a Russian bath on the shore of a cold winter reservoir.
The route is developed with the support of Volkswagen Amarok.

Husky, caves and fishing.
Day 1305 km

Husky, caves and fishing.

Your morning will begin with an introduction to the affectionate husky who loves to run. They'll gladly take you for a ride in the breeze on a sled. Next stop will be the fairly young but no less interesting Rebrov caves with their own ghost. In the evening you'll find winter fishing and a hot Russian bath.

Protected Forest and Abandoned Village

The morning will start early, and new roads will be laid in the area of the protected Veps forest. Unforgettable three hours alone with nature and a car. The probability of you meeting people is quite low. After such seclusion, it's time to visit the Tikhvin Monastery, where absolutely all Russian rulers have looked before you. And finally, an abandoned American peat village is waiting for you. This picture looks like a ghost town movie.
