Route: where we would go

Sochi – Krasnodar – Taman – Gelendzhik – Sochi

 

Day 1. Arrival to Sochi

After arrival to Sochi airport and check-in we will see some interesting places in Sochi. It might be Stalin’s summer house, Roza Hutor, old road to Krasnaya Polyana, Olympic Park, or something else. In the evening we have a dinner and briefing about the tour.

Day 2. Sochi – Krasnodar, 300 km

Let’s go! Serpentine roads and mountains await us. We stop in Goryachiy Kluch to take a walk and drink mineral water from the hot spring, and next we go to Krasnodar. In the evening the city is especially beautiful. The main street is closed for traffic in the evening, so people walk there, young musicians play right on the street, all bars and restaurants are open. We’ll make sure you see the beautiful places we know, and try local food and drinks.

Day 3. Krasnodar – Taman, 230 km

Today we go to Taman Peninsula and see small villages, rivers and towns on the way. Here we try local wine made locally by Fanagoria or Kuban-vino, we can also see the wineries itself.

Day 4. Taman – Anapa – Gelendzhik, 220 km

Scenery roads and beautiful turns, that’s what today is about. We have a lunch in Anapa and walk around a little bit. Next we go to Abray-Durso winery and have a tour there. We stay in Gelendzhik tonight, and we must say, the city is amazingly beautiful in the evening. It was called the best city in the Krasnodar area a couple of times.

Day 5. Gelendzhik

We have one more day here to relax and discover the place a little more. The nice part is, there are not so many tourists in that time of year, so we can enjoy the sun, beautiful bay and breath the fresh air as we go up on the cable car. We also take a boat trip and see the city from the sea, while enjoying the view. In the evening we’ll have a picnic with the wine and Champaign from Abray-Durso.

Day 6. Gelendzhik – Sochi, 250 km

Serpentine roads are now more or less free, and you can enjoy riding to the fullest. Don’t forget the scenery around!

Day 7. Sochi, Krasnaya Polyana

We discover all around here today. Many things to do and to see, and to discuss with our friends in the evening. And maybe we’ll talk about the next trip, to learn even more about fascinating history and people of Russia.

Day 8. Departure from Sochi

In the morning you’ll have some more time to sunbathe or maybe even swim, who knows. After the lunch you check-out from the hotel and we’ll take you to the airport. Fly safe and see you soon!
