Description of the trekking route

We will go with you to the amazing lake land of Poozerye. These are the lakes of the Ushachsky group, located in the Ushachsky district, partly in the Polotsk and Lepel districts of the Vitebsk region of Belarus. Many lakes of this group belong to the Turovlyanka river basin. The largest lakes are: Cherstvyatskoye, Paulskoye, Otolovo, Polozerie, Yanovo, Berezovskoye, Krivoye, Gomel.

The coastline is represented by a complex of glacial and water-glacial landforms. It forms a picturesque landscape, combining different types of hollows, lake ridges that surround them, and lumpy heights, often overgrown with forest. The lakes are connected by numerous rivers and streams. The Diva River flows through a number of lakes.

We will visit those lakes of them, which, like beads, are strung on rivers-channels. We'll start with Lake Otolovo. On our way there will be lakes: Turos, Berezovskoe, Paulskoe, Yanovo, Shchaty, Gomel, Suya, Turovlya. After Lake Turovlya, we will find the difficult river Turovlyanka, where all the skills of kayaking will be required. Here the water in the river accelerates, and all sorts of difficult obstacles (blockages, etc.) appear in the channel.

The gorgeous ending of the rafting will be the city of Polotsk, where we will arrive along the Western Dvina on the last day of the hike. In Polotsk, whoever has time before the train will be able to walk around the city on their own, visit sights, iconic and religious places.

Description of the rafting route

The Sluch River is one of the most beautiful and interesting rivers in the south of Belarus. The visiting card of Sluch is the unique floodplain oak forests that have survived to this day. Huge giant oak trees accompany us throughout the entire route. On high steep banks, very convenient for parking, oak forests are replaced by pine forests.

Pripyat is one of the most majestic and beautiful rivers in Belarus. For the pristine nature of its nature, the impenetrable swampy floodplain, the river is often called the "Polesskaya Amazonka". Plyosy, beaches, backwaters, old lakes alternate with high steep banks. There are few forests on the banks of the Pripyat, mostly willows of all stripes. Pripyat is famous for its fish stocks.

The route ends in the ancient Belarusian city of Turov, the modern tourist center of Polesie. There are local history museums, historical monuments (a settlement, a monument to Kirill Turovsky), which you can visit if you wish.

During the rafting along the route, you will get a lot of new impressions, gain new interesting experience. You will find out what a water trip is, have an interesting time with friends and meet new ones.

The route is designed for people without special training, the main thing is your desire! Three meals a day, varied on the route. Cooking at the stake. On the route, he catches the phone (roaming), but there are places with unstable reception.

Day hike program

Rafting on Sluch starts from the village of Novye Milevichi. The river valley in this section either narrows or widens. High banks covered with mixed forest alternate with low, swampy ones. A dam has been built on this site on the river. Passage along the left bank. We set up a camp on a high bank near the village of Zalyutichi.

The section of Sluch from the village of Zalyutichi to the village of Lenin, near which an overnight stay is planned, is perhaps the most picturesque along the entire route. On the high banks of the river, floodplain oak forests give way to birch groves, pine forests. The low banks are covered with bushes and reeds.

We are rafting along Sluch "for our pleasure", overcoming numerous obstacles in the form of fallen trees, unexpected shoals and stretches. We admire the beauty of these places, study the flora and fauna (there are rare species of birds), swim and fish. Parking places near the villages of Morschinovichi and Vilcha.

Sluch soon flows into Pripyat. On the shores, open areas of the swampy Pripyat floodplain are more common. And here it is - "Polesskaya Amazonka". Pripyat greets us with majestic expanse, calm current and clean sandy beaches. We raft a little and set up camp.

Ushachskaya group of lakes is the most fascinating and most beautiful of the lake groups of Poozerie. These lakes are not inferior in their beauty, and possibly prevail over such well-known lake groups as Braslav Lakes and Blue Lakes. We propose to go through almost all the lakes, which are connected by channels, rivers, and end the trip in the famous Belarusian city of Polotsk.
