Detailed hike plan:

Day 1: All participants and the instructor meet at the shop in the village of Zaplavye during the day (just call the instructor upon arrival!). There is only one store in the village and is located by the water so that it is difficult to make a mistake. From here the instructor will take the arriving participants to the base camp on the Koshelev Island by boat. Tourists who come by car can leave their car in the parking lot in the village for about 150 rubles. per day (we will show you how to find it). During the day, we move with the whole train to Koshelev Island, get to know each other, set up a camp, set up life, prepare lunch, dinner and have a rest.

Day 2: In the morning after breakfast we master the intricacies of rowing and boat control, and then we go on a radial hike along the Polonovka River, honing our skills. A very beautiful river Polonovka flows from the southern end of the Sosnitsky reach, connecting it with the Kravotynsky reach and Lake Khresnoe. The length of the river is 4.5 km. The width is from 8 to 80 m. The average depth is 2.5 m. The bottom of the river is muddy and viscous almost throughout its entire length, only in some places there are stony areas. In the evening we return to the camp on the Koshelev island. Today we have covered about 12 km. Day 3: After breakfast we pack up the camp, pack our things and food into boats, and then move to Vladyshno Bay. The campsites in the bay are rich in blueberries, and the pikes along the grass are caught by spoons. Today we have covered about 4 km.

Day 4: After breakfast we will have a radial exit to the Knyazha River. The length of the river is 2 km. The width is about 20 m. The average depth is 2.5 m. The maximum depth is 5 m. The banks of the river and its channel are sandy. The water has a characteristic brown color due to the peat bogs. The current is fast and the channel is winding. Knyazha is a fish river. Fishing is convenient both from the shore and from the boat. Good fishing catches can be achieved by using the long-distance bait release method. If you go deep into the forest from the southern bank of the river, then literally in a couple of hundred meters you can get to one of the most lingonberry places in Seliger. Even in lean years, there are always a lot of lingonberries in these places. In the evening we return to our camp in Vladyshno Bay. Today we have covered about 9 km.

Day 5: Take a break from the fun today! We will have breakfast and go on foot through the forest to the village of Kravotyn. Kravotyn is one of the ancient villages of the Ostashkovsky district. The first mention in the chronicle of the village of Kravotyn dates back to 1478. Until the end of the 15th century, these lands belonged to the Novgorod archbishop, and since 1588 - to the boyar Velsky. In 1608, the Kravotyn patrimony passed from the treasury to the possession of Prince Boris Lykov, to whom Tsar Vasily Shuisky granted it. Prince Lykov owned the Kravotynskaya patrimony, that is, the village and the surrounding villages, until his death and bequeathed it to the Pafnutevo-Borovsky Monastery for commemoration of the soul, to which it belonged until the decree of Catherine II in 1764 on the alienation of the monastic lands. Since ancient times, there was a church of the Presentation of the Virgin into the Temple, rebuilt in 1791. The Vvedenskaya Church is visible a few kilometers before the village. It seems that her chiseled silhouette is placed on a small, gently raised cape above the surroundings, and this is partly true. We will visit the village and the ancient temple, pick up mushrooms and berries on the way, and in the evening we will return to our camp. Completed today: 10 km.

Day 6: We will have breakfast, pack up the camp and go to a free parking in the area of ​​Cape Tishchenko on the Khachin island. This passage is a little more difficult (≈ 12-14 km.), Since we have to cross the Kravotynsky reach, but we are already experienced sailors! ? We settle down in a new place, prepare dinner and relax.

Now we will tell everyone about the best sights of Tambov with their photos and descriptions, as well as what you can see in the city in 1 day.


Seliger is one of the most beautiful lakes in the European part of Russia. It cannot boast of such a scale as Ladoga or Onega, but it has a special atmosphere. Its surroundings are romantic and homelike. On the shore you can always see the tents of tourists, and on the water surface - boats of fishermen and kayaks. Cyclists have chosen the ring road around the lake for a long time. There are many mushrooms and berries in the forests. Families with small children come here. On Seliger you rest with your soul.

Between Tver and Novgorod

Lake Seliger is divided between two regions - Novgorod and Tverskaya. The largest settlement is the city of Ostashkov. It is located on the south bank. From Moscow to Ostashkov - 370 kilometers, from St. Petersburg - 470, from Tver - 190. Roads to the lake lead both from the Tver and Novgorod regions. Seliger has ideal transport accessibility.

The map clearly shows that Seliger is not one lake, but a system of lakes connected by channels. Many of them have their own names. This situation is common in Karelia. The similarity can be easily explained. Like most Karelian lakes, Seliger is of glacial origin. Hence its unusual branchy shape. It seems that this is not a lake at all, but river meanders - smooth bends of the channel.

The total area of ​​the water surface is 260 sq. kilometers. The coastline is so indented that its total length reaches more than 500 kilometers - a huge distance! The lake feeds over a hundred rivers, streams and streams. But only one follows - Selizharovka. There are many islands in Seliger, including quite large ones. The biggest is Khachin.

There are about a dozen stretches - this is how the deepest parts of the reservoir are called. There are Ostashkovsky, Berezovy, Selizharovsky and other reaches. The water in the lake is crystal clear. The transparency reaches five meters. You can be convinced of this by throwing a coin in the water into the water and following it with your eyes. Picturesque headlands and deep bays delight the eye.

On the way from the Varangians to the Greeks

The lake is very young by geological standards. Seliger was born about 20 thousand years ago. Then the glacier began to melt. Hundreds of thousands of years ago there was a wide river here. During the Ice Age, the water turned to ice. When the warming began, the ice began to actively melt, and the water filled the former river channel to the brim, forming a lake. That is why Seliger has such a strange shape.

At all times, people could not do without water. Rivers and lakes provided water for drinking, supplied with fish, served as transport routes. Since ancient times, Slavic tribes have lived on the banks of the Seliger. This is evidenced by the settlements that archaeologists managed to find. Seliger served as a transit point linking the Volga with the Baltic and Black Seas. In this regard, the lake was repeatedly mentioned in the chronicles of the XII-XIII centuries.

Since the lake was strategically important for trade, it was constantly a bone of contention. So in the XIII century the south of the Seliger region was captured by the Lithuanians. The northern part remained with the Novgorodians. Only in the 15th century did Seliger and its environs fully become part of the Moscow principality. But even after that, the raids of Poles, Swedes and Lithuanians did not stop for a long time.
