Travel Itinerary and Road Trip Route

Day 1: Farms north of the capital

At the beginning of our journey we will visit the fluffy alpacas, then take a walk along the picturesque embankment of Lake Senezh, after which we will visit the eco-farm of Jay Close, an American cheesemaker.


Today we have an interesting trip to the farms near Moscow. We are going to pack up and go on the road.

Ferma "Rossiyskiye Al'paki"

We will visit a farm where we will be greeted by friendly and funny alpacas. During the visit we will get to know these amazing animals, feed them and have our photo taken with them. In addition, the farm staff will show us how they take care of the animals' wool and how they handle it. To visit the farm be sure to sign up [in advance](

Солнечногорская русалка

Stop in Solnechnogorsk and take a walk along the embankment along Senezhskoye Lake. There is also a very unusual mermaid monument and a picturesque park on the embankment.

Restoran Trassa

On the way to the cheese factory you can stop at a restaurant where you can relax and have lunch. This place cooks quickly, presents the dishes beautifully, and most importantly - everything is delicious and nourishing!

Эко сыры фермера Джея Клоуза

We stop by cheesemaker Jay Close's farm. He used to be a chef, but now he has his own cheesemaker's shop and makes cheese that is incredibly tasty and natural. You can book a tour of the farm to meet all its inhabitants and stock up at the cheese shop or a personal cheese-making master class. Be sure to sign up [in advance]( for all events. And in the shop we can buy French bleu, cheddar and delicate cream cheese. Duration of the master class: from 4 to 10 hours (depending on the type of cheese).


At the end of your trip stop by a very cozy restaurant with an incredibly original interior and interesting menu.


Our journey has come to an end. I hope the day has been fun and useful! :)
