Review of travel clothing and kits for outdoor activities, the best brands


What is the concept of "active rest"? This is engaging in active activities in your free time, for example, during rest. Nowadays, there are more than 20 types of outdoor activities, and every year their number is increasing.

Active rest for many people is associated with sports. Yes, in some cases, such a vacation does involve some sports. But in reality, everything looks different: there are no grueling training or participation in world competitions. Although, it should be noted that records are regularly set in some types of outdoor activities. Often, active rest is chosen by people far from physical labor and sports. As a rule, these are accountants, lawyers or programmers, whose activities are associated with a long stay in the office, which contributes to the accumulation of a large amount of mental energy, which is easiest to get rid of with the help of outdoor activities.

The Carpathian mountains fascinate tourists: century-old siren forests attract the eye, and high snow-capped peaks beckon with their secrets and riddles described in Hutsul legends. However, the campaigns in the Carpathians are somewhat inferior to the campaigns in the Crimea. The weather is to blame - you can only travel in the Carpathian Mountains in July and August, the rest of the time it is cloudy and damp, it often rains, and mudflows break down from the mountains. In addition, professional equipment for hiking in the Carpathians is required, which requires a lot of money.

In Russia, many people choose active rest in Crimea. At the same time, for the majority of Ukrainian citizens, a beach vacation in Crimea remains the norm - during the day people lie peacefully on the beaches, and in the evenings they visit nightclubs, discos or cafe bars. However, some of the tourists prefer exciting hikes in the mountains. The Crimean mountains are ideal for lovers of canyoning, hiking or speleotourism, there are no significant differences in altitude that even experienced hikers can hardly overcome, and from April to October the nature of Crimea provides ideal conditions for active recreation. The mountainous Crimea is unusually picturesque: many of the cleanest rivers and lakes give a tourist to feel all the charm of living water, green peaks and rock massifs are ideal for rappelling, and mountain trails and landscapes fascinate at first sight.

Active tourism is not yet as popular as, for example, passive recreation at sea. However, many tourists increasingly prefer interesting hiking trips to lying aimlessly on the beach. Often, unique personalities go to the Crimean Mountains, many of whom are esoteric. People who are interested in esotericism, as a rule, have a well-developed ability to listen and understand their body, so they prefer to be active even during rest. Hiking in the mountains, containing elements of esotericism, has long developed into a separate type of active recreation - esoteric tourism, which involves yoga and meditation in the so-called "places of power" of Crimea. Esoteric tourist during the hike directs part of his attention inward, not forgetting to admire the beauty of the Crimean nature.

If you think that outdoor activities are not for you, don't jump to conclusions. You don't have to lie on the couch for weeks to recuperate. You can bring your body back to normal in a couple of days of proper nutrition and sleep, even if before that you had to load coal or submit annual reports.

Rest is required not only for the body, but also for the mind. But how can your mind rest when you spend the day lying on the beach and at night going to the entertainment centers? Only being in clean air, among nature untouched by civilization, moderate physical activity, as well as the use of live food and spring water, will help a person to charge his body with energy and clear his mind of unnecessary thoughts.

We wish you regular and good rest during your vacation!


Human society is arranged in such a way that almost every adult person works. But once a vacation morning comes for everyone, when everything around breathes with freedom, boils with life and joy, and music sounds in the heart. Oh, what a great time! Although, if, to delve into, vacation is a tricky business, it is never what it was intended to be. Always - or better, or worse ... But in all cases, these are changes, restoration of spiritual and physical strength.

And if you are young, and there is more than enough of these forces, so that lying on the beach seems like a heavy burden, then the thought of active rest comes with a dazzling inspiration. What is this?

Leisure activities are

Active rest is a pleasure from well-coordinated work of muscles, from physical activity, it is a bunch of endorphins in the blood, giving a feeling of fullness of life and harmony of the world outlook ... , the ceiling in the kitchen, but it will already be unsportsmanlike, since it is not a vacation by definition.

Depending on the type of your outdoor activities, the range can be from some attractive beauty island in the endless waters of the seas and oceans, to sultry Africa or, on the contrary, harsh, snow-capped mountains.

Before looking for a place for outdoor activities abroad, do not forget about the homeland: outdoor activities and Russia are perfectly and harmoniously combined. Many exciting activities can be organized here, on the spot, without going anywhere.


All types of outdoor activities, on the one hand, can be divided into winter and summer. But it is immediately clear that such a division is very arbitrary, since nothing prevents us from going to the warm sea in the midst of a cold winter and doing, for example, diving. Or, conversely, go to the snow in the summer.

They can be subdivided into water and land. And you can group by level of accessibility, or by location, or by degrees of physical activity ...
