Off road trip to Pereslavl-Zalesskiy in one day

book now!
Tired of following the beaten path, seeing what thousands have already seen?  You believe that sightseeing tour is boring for you?
Then we would like to offer you a different option! The idea behind it was to prepare a unique blend of exquisite sightseeing while adding a fresh flavour of extreme off-road adventures. You will see the most interesting places in the area specially picked by us for you, but this is not all! This time it will be your task to transfer yourself between the waypoints. And what is more, you will not be driving conventional asphalt but rather fighting through deep ruts left by timber trucks, crossing rivers and streams, climbing steep hills - all that under the cautious guidance of our instructors. We believe in breaking stereotypes. Tourism is exciting!
Meet our first in a series of off-road tours to Pereslavl-Zalesskiy! This Golden Ring town started its history as the peer of Moscow - it was founded only 5 years later – but then the towns went their separate ways. Today Pereslavl is certainly no match for Moscow, but primarily due to this fact it preserved its unique, a bit unsophisticated but lovely and nice atmosphere.
The town is very historical.  Its every detail bears traces of the people and events that shaped the history of not only that place but the whole of Russia. Starting from its founder Yuri Dolgorukiy, through Ivan the Terrible to Peter the Great, who built his first fleet in the local lake – another natural attraction, which draws visitors’ attention by its picturesque views. In the 20th century the town became a centre of peat industry which required appropriate transportation means. That gave rise to the local narrow-gauge railroad – the longest in the USSR. As a reminder of the past times Pereslavl houses a unique museum of narrow-gauge railroads, which offers its visitors a rich collection of rare exhibits and a railroad trolley ride to make your experience more authentic.
We will start our tour with the local Red Square – the heart of the city – continue with a visit to one of the town’s monasteries, go to see Peter the Great’s boat, which he made by himself and then go deep into the bush to reach another waypoint – the railroad museum.
We will have a substantial picnic style meal on the way, with traditional shashliki (kebab), pancakes and samovar tea. Have you ever had a cup of tea from a real samovar? That is an exprerience to remember.
Seeing the sights will be intermitted by off-road driving with you at the wheel. The time of the tour will be divided between these two activities equally (each part will take about 4 hours).
Enjoy driving a 4WD in one of the most historical and picturesque places of Russia. Go active sightseeing!
