Full description
Meet your friendly guide in Moscow city center then head to Sergiyev Posad, also known as the Orthodox Vatican. Head towards the snow-covered forest and meet Sergey, the owner of the amazing location where you’ll spend the day.

After a very warm welcome, enjoy a horse-drawn sled ride through the snow, and soak up the magic of the sparkling landscapes that surround you. Arrive at a small clearing covered in glistening snow, and warm up by the roaring fire pit. As the BBQ gets underway, learn how to cook meat sticks, locally known as Shashlik, then taste traditional Russian vodka.

When you’re all full up from lunch, cozy up to the fire pit and watch an authentic folklore show. During the show, listen to authentic Russian music performances, including accordion playing, and admire the beautifully colorful traditional costumes. After the show, play a selection of Russian winter games, including rope pulling, speed log sawing, hillside tubing, and more. At the end of a unique and unforgettable experience it’s time to head back to Moscow.
