The difference between mountain tourism, mountaineering and rock climbing; For Dummies

Beach holidays and measured excursions to architectural or historical monuments are a good thing. But what about adventure and extreme lovers? The Krasnodar Territory is an ideal place for those who are tired of spending their holidays lounging on the shore for days. Yes, in the south of Russia there is a huge number of all-inclusive hotels and sanatoriums, there are many proposals for agricultural tours, wineries, nature reserves and museums. However, the Kuban resorts have something to offer even the most sophisticated tourist. Here you can find something that will bring an unforgettable thrilling experience: land, water, air and mountain views of extreme. AiF tells about this in more detail.

For speed lovers

The Sochi Autodrom race track is very popular today among fans of high-speed extreme sports - the very first and only track that hosts the Formula 1 Russian Grand Prix. It is also the only one in the country that works all year round. Professional pilots from all over the world, fans of fast driving and beginners come there.

You can also order a racing taxi there, this is a great opportunity to enjoy the speed and skill of professional instructors. You will fully experience the steep turns of the track.

You can get behind the wheel yourself and race around the track in your own or rented real racing car. A professional instructor will show you how to take turns correctly, help you choose the right braking points and give you some helpful tips.

There are even "black" tracks

The ski slopes of Krasnaya Polyana are designed for a variety of levels of training. There are children's slopes, slides for beginners and difficult tracks of the "black" category. For adrenaline-seekers, descent along the "virgin land" is offered, away from the prepared trails (freeride), and even heli-skiing is a kind of freeride with an ascent to the beginning of the descent by helicopter.

If skiing and snowboarding are already boring and you want something new, you can try the descent down the real bobsleigh track, which was built for the 2014 Winter Olympics. Now this stadium works not only as a professional sports ground, but also as a winter attraction for everyone. You can ride a real sports bob that flies down the chute at a speed of 130 kilometers per hour.

When there is no snow in the mountains, you can go down the slope by bike. Mountain biking is no less extreme sport than alpine skiing or snowboarding. An adrenaline rush is guaranteed. You can go down from the mountains and by water. Rafting or rafting on mountain rivers is a godsend for those who want to test their level of capabilities in extreme conditions and get a truly unforgettable experience. There are excellent rafting trails in Sochi along the Mzymta River and in the Absheron District on the Kurdzhips and Pshekha rivers.

Climbing wall, zipline, paragliding

In the Kuban, there are diving centers in all coastal cities. Prices are quite reasonable: almost everyone can afford to see the underwater world with their own eyes. Experience is not required for the first dive.

The instructors will explain everything. If you wish, you can take diving lessons from professionals and get the appropriate certificate of almost any level. By the way, in Anapa, diving enthusiasts can visit the underwater museum. Every beginner can dive to a depth of eight meters. Experts say that such diving is safe even for children. Divers have been collecting unusual exhibits for more than five years. Some were found at the bottom of the Black Sea, for example, ancient anchors from Turkish sailing ships and ships of the Great Patriotic War. Today there are more than a dozen of them. There are also man-made concrete structures in the exposition, for example a guitar and even an underwater miniature cafe.

On the difference in the meanings of these concepts in modern Russian. To avoid confusion in communicating with tourists and climbers, I recommend reading the article.

In addition, tourists will not have to notify inspection authorities of their final destination, as previously stated. Also, holidaymakers do not need to have a certificate of a negative coronavirus test and no contact with infected people.
