Route: where we would go

Moscow – Seliger island – Valday - Moscow

Day 1. Moscow – Seliger, 400 km

We leave Moscow via Rublevskoye highway. The first stop is in Zvenigorod, there we visit Savvino-Storozhevskiy monastery, take a swim and drink tasty kvas. Next we take minor road and go to Seliger via Ruza and Rzhev. We will see Ostashkov, the so-called capital all over Volga banks, and Nilova Pustyn, where we will hear a fascinating story about Nil, one of Russian saints.

Day 2. Seliger – Valday, 150-250 km

An off-road day. There are a couple of roads available from Seliger to Valday, but all of them has unpaved parts. So, first of all, the average speed would drop down to 40-50 km/h. Secondly, you might want to ride standing, and finally, if we’re unlucky with the weather and it’s raining, we’re actually lucky, as the road is going to become a real trophy. Anyways, in the evening we deserve a nice relaxation: a proper diner, Russian bath and swimming in the lake.

Day 3. Valday, 150-200 km

This day we ride around Valday National Park. We will see old military bases, wooden churches, Valday Iversky Monastery and many other sites. In the evening we’ll make a campfire and share our emotions.

Day 4. Valday – Moscow, 400 km

We return to Moscow via Torzhok, Ekaterina’s Palace in Tver, Tchaikovsky Museum in Klin and Pyatnitskoye Highway. In the evening we invite you for a cup of tea to discuss the trip and maybe future plans.
