Kayaking along the southern coast of Crimea is an unforgettable adventure! In just a week we will see such iconic places as Feodosia, Koktebel, Sudak, Novy Svet and others. And we will also make many discoveries that are not available for tourists moving along the coast. You can even see dolphins!

We will buy plenty, sunbathe, admire the seascapes as in the paintings of Aivazovsky, walk along the Golitsinsky trail and look into the Chaliapin grotto, fall asleep in tents to the sound of the surf, sail on kayaks under the rocky arch of the Golden Gate of Crimea and make wishes. After such a trip, it is difficult to imagine that you can rest in Crimea in any other way! Please note that the choice is offered with route options for 7 or 10 days.

Weekend Itinerary Rating

Today I want to present you a rating of the most popular excursions and weekend hikes in the mountains of Crimea. The rating is based on the number of requests I received for one-day tours in the Crimea mountains. What they all have in common is that they are hiking in one day.

Here you need to understand that some popular excursions from Yalta, such as the Botkin Trail and one-day hiking routes on Ai-Petri, were in the background this year. Perhaps my content on Instagram contributed to this - there are a lot of trips to Demerdzhi, and, of course, beautiful photos, which could arouse interest in this very direction. Also, in the last months of the season, she began to recruit the route of the hike from Foros to Laspi through the Baydar pass and the Tyshlar rocks (Temple of the Sun).

I sometimes experiment and add walks that are far enough from Yalta, for example, this year there was an idea for a one-day hike along the route from Morskoy to Sudak, its minus is in transport accessibility, because to get to There are not many maritime options. But, nevertheless, let's proceed to my rating.

Excursion to Demerdzhi and "Valley of Ghosts"

If in 2018 there was a competition in attendance between Ai-Petri and Demerdzhi, then in the 2019 campaign the latter is the undisputed leader. I am very happy about this, because, in my opinion, the route through the mountains to Demerdzhi really deserves to be in the first place in the rating. There are a lot of different paths along Demerdzhi, I drive along them either from the Angarsk pass, or from the Radiant, depending on the strength of the group. On the way, we capture natural attractions such as MAN cave or Dzhurla waterfall. Often I go hiking to Demerdzhi with an overnight stay, in this case we manage to visit the maximum number of interesting places on the mountain and in the foothills. The beginning of the route is the "Turn to Radiant" stop on the Alushta-Simferopol highway.

18. km Climb: 1030 m Difficulty: 6/10 Popularity: 7/10 Shoes: sneakers Water: 1. liter Two meals a day

Excursion "Sunset on Ilyas-Kaya"

From Foros to the "Temple of the Sun" (Tyshlar Rocks) - the route of the hike in one day, albeit not large, but certainly very beautiful and interesting, will be simpler in terms of mileage and effort. One of the goals of this hiking trip is to meet the sunset on Mount Ilya (Ilyas-Kaya). The route starts at the "Turn to Foros" stop on the Yalta-Sevastopol highway.

13 km Climb: 600 m Difficulty: 5/10 Popularity: 7/10 Shoes: Sneakers Water: 1. liters One meal snack

The only trip around Crimea where you can take children from 4 years old. It is possible for the younger ones, but they themselves will not completely pass, the whining will begin and from time to time you will have to carry them. Parking is safe, away from cliffs and caves. Short treks up to 6-8 km a day will also appeal to adults who just want to walk for the soul. Through shady beech forests, along the ringing mountain streams, we will climb Demerdzhi-Yaila. We will look at the sea resorts from a height of 1200m and go down to the sea. The last night will be by a warm mountain lake. Hiking route in the mountainous Crimea: Simferopol - Perevalnoe - Kurlyuk-Bash gorge - Demerdzhi-Yaila, Tyrke-Yaila, Nefan-Uzen - Rybachye.

Daily program

Day

Crimea seems to be the only place in the world where there is an intercity trolleybus service. The usual transport route may well give odds to some excursions: on both sides of the road, we will see steppe valleys and delightful mountain landscapes. A couple of hours by trolleybus from Simferopol - and we would be at sea, but we are not going to wallow on the beach - something more interesting awaits us.

An hour by public transport - and we are in the village of Perevalnoye. This is where our journey to the mountains begins.

Today we have to climb the lower plateau of Mount Chatyr-Dag and look into the Emine-Bair-Khosar cave. This is a huge geological formation of amazing beauty. Following the caver guides, we will descend tens of meters along the stairs leading to the underworld. Under the titanic stone vaults, there is a deep underground lake, the Hall of Idols with bizarre stalactites and stalagmites, and there is even a small paleontological museum with the skeletons of mammoths that fell here many thousands of years ago. And this is not a complete list of the wonders hiding in the palaces of the foothills. It will take about an hour to explore the cave.

Then we will have a bite to eat and walk for half an hour to the speleologists' camp site "Onyx Tour", to the place of our first stop.

We are waiting for a dinner by the fire under the stars, an evening of acquaintances and a whole week of adventures ahead!

Day

We have breakfast, set up the camp and go to our camp with a sequoia grove and a small pond.
