The real authentic Russia, with its endless meadows, uncountable creeks, rustic villages with unique wooden houses and churches only starts in the outback.

Especially in the second part of the tour you will drive part on the tour we will travel off the beaten track, and on gravel roads, but will be rewarded by views of wonderful orange pine forest. In the villages you will meet people know no modern snobism - they are real openhearted, hospitable Russians.
