Tour Overview

In 2008 the Russian Television Network "Rossiya" organized a national competition "7 Wonders of Russia". After 10 months of voting on its official site the 7 winning leaders were announced: the Valley of Geysers on the Kamchatka Peninsula, Lake Baikal in the south of Siberia, Man-Pupu-Nyor (or Manpupuner) in the Ural Mountains, the Peterhof Palace in Saint-Petersburg, Saint Basil's Cathedral on the Red Square in Moscow, the Motherland Calls in Mamayev Kurgan in Volgograd, Mount Elbrus in the northern Caucasus mountains.

The tour operator BaikalNature dared this adventure and united all the Wonders in one general trip, the sites which are commonly visited as separate or even dreamt to be visited…

Making a 27-day journey from the Kamchatka Peninsula to Mount Elbrus, you will cross the whole Russia by making a visit to these 7 places, which are very different from each other and characterize the country. You will make one of the fortunate visitors who have a chance to discover these treasures of Russian national heritage. Take a look at a map to realize the scale of this adventure!

Imagine as well the contrast between the wild nature and the famous cultural sites that you are going to experience: one day you have a dinner in front of volcano, the other day you are having lunch in the imperial palace of Peterhof; one evening you admire the sun setting on the inaccessible shelf of Man-Pupu-Nyor, the other one you are passing in one of the most dynamic capitals in the world – Moscow.

Our journey "7 Wonders of Russia" is not simply a visit to Russian places of interest, this is a unique chance to see the wild nature, immerse yourselves in the culture of different people of Russia, to touch the history of the past. You will have a walk through the "earth of fire", observe wild animals and take a part in a shamanic ritual. Also, you will make a visit to main cities of Russia, take a taste of a caviar and omul – endemic Baikal fish, the Caucasian BBQ (shashlik). You will enjoy the greatness of lake Baikal, the fineness of the Peterhof Palace and the beauty of Saint Basil's Cathedral. You will sense a thrill facing the highness of giant Man-Pupu-Nyor pillars and the Mamayev Monument, the Kamchatka volcanos and Mount Elbrus!

And that`s just a small part that may be described with words. Like it is sung in the popular russain song: "Untill you see it, you will never understand it".

This exclusive trip is fully designed and organized by BaikalNature team. Today it represents our flagship product. BaikalNature is also the first tour operator to bring this itinerary to life.
