What you'll do

Where to find a real Russian winter? The weather in the world is changing, and the opportunity to see the winter in St. Petersburg is a big lucky! But I know a place where you can see the most beautiful winter forest in the whole region of St. Petersburg, and try the most popular winter activity of Russians - cross-country skiing! I am a big fan of cross-country skiing, participated in ski marathons, but we won't go on a professional track to set olympic records! We will go on a slow and easy eco-walk through the cleanest forest among the snow-covered green trees. For those who have never skated, I will make a lesson. The first steps on cross-country skiing are very easy and fun! Our walk will be in a comfortable rhythm for a short distance from 2 to 5 kilometers. We will definitely stop to make photos or just to relax! Our walk will be similar to simple trekking or hiking in nature in real winter landscapes. So, I promise a fun atmosphere, real Russian activity, ecological track, beautiful photos and unforgettable impressions! Join in! If there is no snow, but you still want to find winter activities, I recommend a trip to one of the most unusual outdoor ice rinks in the world. This is not just a classic skating rink, there are several kilometers of ice tracks right in the forest, with wonderful lighting, cafes and music. I guarantee the most unusual impressions and photos.
