Travel Itinerary and Road Trip Route

Day 1: Ostrich Farm, Thermal Springs, Guam Gorge.

The journey will begin with a tour of the ostrich farm, which has long been a landmark on the map of Krasnodar agro-tourism. Then you'll visit hot thermal springs in Nizhny Novgorodskaya village, and after a hearty lunch you'll go to explore the famous Guam Gorge - on foot or by sightseeing train on an old narrow gauge.


Ostrich Farm

The ostrich farm in the village of Molkino has existed for more than 10 years and is one of the largest African ostrich farms in the country. It is located in a picturesque place by a pond. Visitors are admitted daily from 09:00 to 17:00. A guided tour (40 minutes) is included in the price.

Thermal springs

The next point of the trip will be thermal springs in the village of Nizhny Novgorod. The wells were drilled back in the times of the USSR for heating greenhouses, and today a real year-round resort is located here. There are several bathing firms. You can choose - pay about 500 rubles for recreation at the well-appointed base ["Aquarius"]( with a pool with hydromassage and pergolas around or give 200 rubles for swimming in the pool next door, where facilities are minimal. Water in both pools is the same - clean and hot: even in winter, the water temperature does not fall below +37 ... +39 ° C, at the outlet and reaches +85 ° C. Do not forget that staying in the pools longer than 15 minutes is not recommended, especially for those suffering from kidney and heart disease.

Кафе «Добрыня»

For a quick lunch we stop at the cafe at the hotel ["Dobrynya"]( The prices here are great, and there's an excellent choice of drinks. Nourishing, inexpensive and homemade - you couldn't wish for more!

Guam Gorge

The highlight of today's program - the magnificent [Guamsky Gorge](, a place of attraction for connoisseurs of mountain beauties. Leave your car at the parking lot at the end of the village of Guamka. The road from here to the last point - Mezmai village - may be divided into three conditionally equal segments. The first segment, starting from the hotel in Guamki, which is closest to the gorge, is traveled by sightseeing train (every 40 minutes). It runs from Wednesday through Sunday from 8:30 to 17:00 o'clock in the summer. During this time, walking through the gorge is prohibited. On other days you can cross the section on foot. The 15-minute walk brings you to Café 1707. From there you can continue your walk on foot or take another ride on the railway, affectionately called "Zina". The carriages are equipped with an audioguide, so you can learn about the flora and fauna of the gorge and the history of the construction of the narrow-gauge railway on the way. As of late, there is also a third trolley - look for the stop by the signposts. By foot or by train you will end up in Mezmai, where you can enjoy the stunning views of Kurdjip Gorge. The river has formed beautiful rifts, the view of which sometimes takes your breath away. In total, the walk by train will take about 1 hour in one direction, by foot - more than 2 hours excluding stops. Choose your variant, saving more time for nature watching and stops.


Cafe Yo-moye is a real find for hungry travelers. Spend the evening on the outdoor terrace and remember the best moments of your trip!
