Try to cycle down the top of the main Crimean mount Ai-Petri. Go hiking along the southern shore and enjoy the panoramic sea views. Descend from the steep ledge into the cave and explore the picturesque bays of the Black sea by kayaks. All the most beautiful about Crimea are concerned with nature, not cities indeed.

Experiences you'll have

Active tour to Crimea

During a week in Crimea you will have a real adventure, every day trying different types of outroor activities:

  • you will ride a bike across the Vorontsov's and Livadia palace parks, as well as along the Solar trail, where Emperor Nicholas II preferred to go for a walk 
  • go down to Yalta from the picturesque Ai-Petri Mount, and if desired, try some extreme adventure, such as a zip-line ride over the gorge and walk along a rope ladder between the high peaks of rocks
  • during kayaking you will discover beautiful secluded bays near Aya and Fiolent capes: sheer cliffs hide them from hikers and therefore you can get to it only from the seaside
  • you will feel like a real caver, descending 30 meters down from a steep rock with a rope to explore the Stavri-Kaya cave
  • you will be able to capture the best views of the southern Crimean coast during a bike ride along the old Sevastopol highway and the "Baydar gate" pass.

This trip can be called a fitness tour. Every day you can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities at picturesque places, surrounded by mountains and the sea.
