This destination is very popular with travelers. Here you will not only admire the wild forests and steep mountains, but you can also pass endurance tests - it is not for nothing that Karelia is considered one of the harshest regions of Russia. If you suddenly get bored with walking with a backpack, there is an alternative in the form of water descent along numerous rivers. Ladoga, Shuya, Keret, Uksa, Pista, Kitenyoki - choose any. And if this is not enough, then the White Sea is completely at your disposal.

- If you accepted the decision to go camping in Karelia, that’s all - this decision must be final and irrevocable. Firstly, you will have difficult organizational issues - you need to buy train tickets for six months (to buy them at an affordable price), you also need to make a request for equipment and get directions. Secondly, it is important to be psychologically prepared: in Karelia, if you went away from the railway station, civilization no longer exists. No one in the group can say: "That's it, I'm tired, we are off the route. I want to go to Moscow.

" It is simply physically impossible.

The plans of many backpackers are "asterisk" opposite Kamchatka. Indeed, where else can you see active volcanoes adjacent to snowy mountains, geysers and alpine meadows? Flowering mountain tundra and fragrant plants - nature on the peninsula is simply incomparable. There really is something to see.

If you are lucky, you can meet “local residents” in Kamchatka - brown bears, wild reindeer, sables and other inhabitants of the animal world. Just be careful: it is better if you get to know them at a safe distance.

- Although Kamchatka and the wild land, hiking in this direction is not only suitable for pros. There are tours that can be mastered by absolutely any person. This is not a hike with a backpack as such, but rather a variation on the topic - the main transfers are carried out with vehicles, and the walks are light without a heavy backpack.

- It’s interesting in Baikal in winter. The ice of Baikal is a spectacular sight.

Once, a girl went camping with us, who decided to go on a trip for the sake of this species. In winter there is -30 degrees, and you need to spend the night in tents. But she went her first route and was very pleased.

It’s not necessary to travel far from Moscow, to feel like a tourist - and in the suburbs there are their own popular destinations. For all those tired of the bustle of the city, professional hikers recommend weekend tours or family trips for walks with children. Often such trips include several active activities: a hiking trail, a bike ride and river rafting.

There is a blessing in the Moscow Region where you can take a walk: wide forests are easy to find in the Tver, Vladimir and Kaluga regions, and rafting can be done on almost any river - the Volga, Ruse, Kirzhach, Resset, and Nerzh.

Nevertheless, remember: a successful trip does not depend on the place, but on the right attitude.

-It is difficult to give preference to any particular place in the suburbs. Each is special. In the Tver direction along the Volga - one nature, and on the river Nerzh - is completely different.

In spring, these places cannot be recognized. If we talk about alloys, then each river has its own character: you can go with the flow, but you can go along the threshold. In general, whoever wants to.
