Family water hike - Seligerskoe ring: description

Sherna is a left tributary of the Klyazma. It flows through the west of the Vladimir region and the east of the Moscow region. Born at the confluence of the Molokchi and Seroy rivers at the Belkovo platform. From other tributaries of the Klyazma, Sherna, first of all, it differs in clean and transparent water, the absence of industrial effluents and large settlements along the banks. Sherna is one of the few rivers in the Moscow region where it is really pleasant to swim.

We will start rafting from the village of Dvorishchi and reach the dam in the village of Karavaevo, 3 kilometers before the confluence of the Sherna with the Klyazma. We have to cover 27 kilometers over the weekend. We will be on the water for 3-4 hours a day, and the rest of the time we will devote to rest and entertainment. Participants will find a traditional hiking bath, as well as many fun games and contests. In the evenings, unusual outdoor cuisine and fun gatherings around the campfire with a guitar await you, as well as the mafia, crocodile and other favorite games.

Daily program

Day (Friday)

A hot and long-awaited meeting with the instructor and his team at sunset in a cozy forest on the edge of the village of Dvorishchi. We set up tents and gather around the fire for an acquaintance at dinner. We learn about the hiking experience and outline the crews for the kayaks. We do not stay too long, because tomorrow is the main day of our active rest. Those who get a good night's sleep will be more active on Saturday night.

Day (Saturday)

Wake up at 7:30 am, wash in the river, acceleration gymnastics with the awakening of an internal fire, breakfast, collecting kayaks, safety and rowing techniques, distribution of crews, taking into account wishes and experience, distribution of sealed packaging and life jackets. Finally, an exciting immersion in aqua aura, where pleasant emotions will rush in a stormy stream at the sight of those delightful pictures that can only be seen from the surface of the water surface.

At the beginning of the route, the river winds heavily, dragging us along the path of pleasure from the process. After 3 kilometers, the Sherna receives the right tributary - Melezhu, noticeably expanding. The border of the Moscow and Vladimir provinces from now on will follow our river. At the mouth of the right tributary - Melezhi, we start a hot lunch in the form of cheese and fish cream soup. While he prepares, there is time for badminton, volleyball or carefree swinging. A stone's throw from our halt, uyany village with a shop.

Having thoroughly refreshed ourselves, we rush with fresh forces to the village of Zarechye with a high Kazan church. On the way, we can meet huge herons, delighting with their flight. The left bank here is overgrown with coniferous forest, near the water - willow, alder, birch. And now, after another bend, our flotilla drops anchor on the village beach for an overnight stay, swimming and sunbathing. For thrill-seekers, there is a bungee here.

We set up a camp, a bathhouse, soak brooms, cook dinner over the fire, cut a salad and slowly cheer up after the heat of the day to the periodic bell ringing of the church. And here the most interesting thing begins: the camp bath is heating up intriguingly, communication between us is developing, the Berlin walls are crumbling and.

. We remember funny and gambling games like a crocodile and statues of love. We can also arrange a song repertoire competition and play a vocal game on a given theme. For example, girls will sing songs with male names, and guys - with female names, one by one. But you never know what else can we invent on this romantic night under the bright constellations? Even just admiring the play of the flame on the wood is a great pleasure! Like our distant ancestors, the hearth will give warmth and calmness, the brain will turn off, and the psyche will relax and in the morning it will be like a baby's.

Day (Sunday)

The Klyazma River is one of the largest and deepest tributaries of the Oka, along the banks of which flooded meadows and pine forests adorn. And the section from Usad to Omutishchi, along which our route passes, is perhaps the most picturesque and sparsely populated with blue forests in the distance and groves greening along the river. On the way we will be accompanied by birds with their endless serenade, which caresses the ear. The river forms large bends, becoming deeper and wider. Klyazma, taking its tributaries: Kirzhach, Bol. Lipnya, Peksha, Polya, Obod, Voronovka, expanding from 75m to 100m in low water!

The route is perfect for both experienced watermen to warm up at the beginning of the season, and for beginners, especially those who have long wanted to go on a water trip, but had doubts or did not know where to start. The unhurried course of the Klyazma and the almost complete absence of such obstacles as driftwood sticking out of the water and fallen trees are almost ideal conditions for exploring the kayak.

On this trek, we will have a rare opportunity to devote enough time to training. Everyone will be able to learn how to independently assemble and disassemble a kayak, feel confident in it in the place of a sailor and a captain, row correctly in order to save energy during long journeys and quickly maneuver in difficult situations.

Our trip is, first of all, outdoor recreation, communication and new acquaintances. Therefore, in addition to dissection with vodial strokes of Klyazma, we are waiting for a variety of entertainment program: volleyball in a circle and badminton through the grid, hiking bath, evening gatherings by the fire, web and a statue of love, crocodile and many more diverse games and contests.

Epilogue. Overcoming with us all the joyful tale travel thaws, forever befriended each other and with the Russian nature, without hiding tears from parting with loved by kayaks, you can't even imagine to yourself, with what unstable enthusiasm will go on the way back on all conceivable vehicles, Gradually accustomed to urban bustle, but forever retaining unforgettable days of unity with nature in mind! And you certainly want to repeat those wonderful moments that will remain in the heart forever!

What is the most memorable part of a camping trip? Well, of course, the HIKING BATH! No, no, we are not talking about a village bath. The tourist bath looks very different. First, a large fire is made. After it flares up well, stones are thrown at it. You need to make the pyramid of stones bigger and warm them up as hot as possible. After the stones have warmed up, the fire is extinguished, and a special large sauna tent is erected over the stones - without a bottom and with windows. Good stones keep warm for a long time, and you can hit the park more than once, and then, steamed, jump into the icy water of the river. Going to such a bath is like being reborn. Such a bath is especially popular with children.
