Enjoy the wild nature and quiet life away from the hustle of big cities!

The tour is designed specifically for those who want to visit the most popular attractions located near the Golubino Forest Hotel. In 5 days, you will visit karst caves, discover various species of flora and fauna in Karst Museum of the Pinega Nature Reserve, and get acquainted with rich local history (Pinega is 10 years older than Moscow!). Learn about ancient “chud” tribes; the life of the village that used to be a major trade and fair center; a rich merchant family Volodin, and the history of the 19th-century houses. Take part in a masterclass and enjoy beautiful walks in protected forest, cozy accommodation, northern cuisine, and traditional Russian banya!
