Post-Olympic Sochi from year to year proves to tourists that it is interesting as an all-season resort, and not just a beach coast.
Hundreds of excursions are held in Sochi, and their list is constantly updated with new routes - massive and original.
We have selected the best excursions in Sochi, which are suitable for families with children, and for extreme people, and simply for those who want to have time to see as much as possible during a short vacation.
They lead the top starting routes for getting to know Sochi - sightseeing tours, during which guides show must see places, the very postcard views, without which it is even difficult to imagine a visit to Sochi, and, of course, talk about the sights on display.
During sightseeing excursions in the center of Sochi - walking or pedestrian-car - you will see: the Marine Station - one of the symbols of Sochi, the Winter Theater, the Arboretum, the abandoned Ordzhonikidze sanatorium - a popular photo location, the Archangel Michael Church, Mount Akhun and other places. It is interesting that the routes of different guides and companies differ, and often sightseeing tours go beyond the center of Sochi and even include the Olympic Park in Adler and Krasnaya Polyana.
The Greater Sochi mountain cluster attracts tourists all year round - with high-altitude views and cable cars, waterfalls and other natural attractions, as well as with every year the developing level of service and new opening objects (for example, a water park has appeared in the mountains) and equipped mountain routes.
As a result, excursions around Krasnaya Polyana are as diverse as possible: from basic group tours by bus to individual escort with the ability to include the most interesting places on the route.
Excursions to Krasnaya Polyana are always in demand also because it is sometimes inconvenient to take public transport with a return on the same day, and tours save time and allow you to see more interesting sights.

Excursions in Sochi are a good option to diversify your beach vacation and see a lot in a short time. You don't have to plot routes and look for fun facts. Why reinvent the wheel when everything is already there. The most difficult thing is to choose ... a tour, a guide, a walking option.
Here I have collected the best excursions in Sochi - with reviews and an interesting program. They are sorted into groups for easier searching.
And more ... I would like to draw your attention to the fact that due to the risk of coronavirus, the demand for individual excursions has increased. In addition, the prices for many of them do not differ so much from group prices (especially if you are traveling with a company of 4 or more people).
To Abkhazia - from Sochi
Roman has the best excursions! Among excursions to Abkhazia, I especially recommend tours with a guide Roman: they all have many positive reviews and are the most budgetary of the proposed individual tours. If for some reason you do not get on them, then pay attention to other offers in my selection: there are group excursions, and walks with private guides - also with good reviews and reasonable prices.
Trip to Lake Ritsa
The most popular excursion in Abkhazia is trains to Lake Ritsa. This is the country's business card, and you can find its views on many souvenir postcards. On the way to the lake you will look at the waterfall "Maiden's Tears", where you can make a wish, on the shores of the "Blue Lake" you will watch peacocks, if you wish, visit the dacha I. Stalin, and in the "Stone Bag" canyon you will take unforgettable pictures. You will also have a delicious lunch in the traditional apatskhe on the banks of the Ritsa, tasting the traditional mamalyga, khachapuri and mountain tea.
