You will meet your guide at your hotel in the morning. Together, get onboard a minibus to go outside of Moscow to turn your day into an unforgettable adventure. Your destination point is one of the biggest dog kennels in Russia, located in a picturesque area on the shore of Moscow River.
Once there, you will be warmly welcomed by Natalia, the owner of the Village, who is passionate about looking after huskies for more than 10 years. While sharing a cup of tea, she will tell you the wonderful history of northern dogs’ breeds and about their adventurous lives next to great explorers. Together, you will then go meet the dogs.
As soon as you enter the kennel, the dogs will show the absolute love for humans, for which this breed is so famous. Hug more than 100 huskies and feel free to take pictures with every single dog. Right after, each of you will be able to choose one dog, with whom you will spend the rest of the day. And here your adventure begins:
OPTION A - 5-km dog-trekking tour (capacity – up to 25 people) / 4h on-site + 3h road:
Accompanied by professional “kayur” (dog-sled leader) and a guide, you will go for a 5-km hike in the heart of a forest alongside the Moscow river. Each member of the group will have a husky, strapped to his back with a rope. The dogs themselves will be choosing the route and be guiding you through natural landscapes. This summer activity is extremely popular with Russian dog-lovers as it allows people to unite with animals. Once back, you will visit the farm and feed geese, chickens, black Vietnamese pigs and goats that will also be happy to play with you!
OPTION B - 6-km dog-trekking tour + 6-km kayaking (capacity – up to 10 people) / 6h on-site + 3h road:
You will go on a unique tour, which has no alternatives in Russia, where both dog-trekking experience and kayaking are done together. After a 6-km hike with the dogs and professional kayurs you reach the checkpoint, where you will be able to swim in the river and to enjoy a little lunch (each person receives a backpack with a bottle of water, juice, an apple, a chocolate bar and cookies). At the checkpoint you will meet the kayaking instructors who will teach how to ride kayaks. Right after that you will start 6-km way back on kayaks on Moscow river, observing wonderful nature around.
When your trip is done, Natalia will welcome you to enjoy a traditional Russian meal with hot herbal tea and freshly cooked “oladushki” (Russian pancakes).
