About Sight Hiker
Sight Hiker is a travel agency that organizes sightseeing trips to the regions of Russia. We strive to open to all comers the beauty, diversity and wealth of each individual region of the largest and most amazing country in the world.
We travel to little-known corners of our homeland and collect their beauty and unique features to share with you. Each region, place and angle we check by ourselves so that you are confident in the success and safety of your future trip there!
Nature, history, culture, religion and everyday life - we are interested in every detail of the life of local residents in order to truly know the region. It is not enough for us just to visit beautiful places - we want to see them at the best time of the year and day, fully enjoy them and realize the significance for the people living there. After all, it is people who make a typical place so special!

History of our travels
At the moment, we have visited more than 40 regions of Russia, for which we have organized more than twenty sightseeing trips. Read more about each of them!
We discover the Russian outback
and make the regions of Russia closer to you!
Each of our tours is the result of large-scale work to find places, perspectives, historical information and local guides who are ready to share their knowledge and skills. We make trips to interesting, colorful and little-known places in Russia, in which each route is unique. At the moment, we organize tours to 30 regions of Russia, and their number is growing every year!
Our travels break stereotypes and change people!
The stereotypes that we want to break down are often stops from trips to Russia: from high cost and poor service to security problems and lack of knowledge about the region. Do you think that the most beautiful landscapes are very far away and expensive to reach? It seems to you that it is impossible to visit many places in one trip? In some regions of Russia, it is dangerous and inhospitable, and is it impossible to fully immerse yourself in the local culture during a short trip? Or maybe there’s nothing to watch in Russia at all? When traveling with us you will learn about places that will open up a great country from a new perspective! The country that you will want to be proud and sincerely love.
How do we do this?
Route. We work with logistics of any complexity, because we want to visit every corner of Russia and make it accessible to everyone.
Transport. We use not only personal, but also public transport to immerse ourselves in the everyday life of the region.
Stories. We want to not only see the place, but also to tell the world about it. We love to share information, photos and stories about Russia with everyone!
Places. We are looking for interesting, beautiful and unusual places, hidden from the eyes of typical tourists.
Impressions. Thanks to immersion in nature, culture and history of the region, participants gain strong emotions and impressions that remain with them for a long time.
Lifeline. Each of our journeys is a path that changes a person. Our dream is that every participant of the trip loves the place he visited, and that it makes his life better!
Full immersion in Russia
In our travels, everyone discovers Russia from a new and unexpected side. Whether it is the steppe expanses of Kalmykia, the salt mines of Astrakhan, the mountain serpentines of the North Caucasus or the architectural masterpieces of the Lipetsk region, everything acquires a bright flavor. In each trip, a person does not just get acquainted with the region - he plunges into his culture, history and religion, rests his soul and body in the most beautiful places of nature and acquires unique impressions that will remain with him for life.
From our trips we bring more than just photos - we bring vivid emotions, memories and impressions of places we want to return to!
About the creator of the travel agency
My name is Pavel Demin, I am a traveler, photographer and author of dozens of tourist routes in Russian regions. In 2019, I created "Sight Hiker" to share with you the beauty and inspiration from the places I saw and my future travels!
The life of a student taught me how to save my savings, but could not restrain my desire to see the world. Over the past two years, I have visited more than 25 countries in Europe and Asia, as well as about 40 regions of Russia. My trips took place in a variety of conditions: from the urban jungle to rural landscapes, from the icy mountains to the melting deserts, from the comfort of 5 * hotels to cozy overnight stays in a camping tent. During the travels, I realized that I love safety and comfort during the trip, so now I try to visit every place without risk to myself and my comfort. At the same time, I was convinced that I did not like standard and hackneyed tourist routes, and therefore my path always lies outside the beaten track. The unique sightseeing route in the region opens up new incredible places, often hidden from the eyes of most tourists. Each such trip is filled with history, religion, culture, beautiful nature and local life, with which you can fully see and feel each region. This trip is not for the sake of a "tick", but for a complete immersion in the place.
I do not regret a single day spent traveling - after all, this is what filled my life with meaning and made me a happy person! My main desire is to introduce everyone to the unique and diverse features of the Russian regions. Traveling beyond familiar places, filling life with impressions and expanding the boundaries of the world, we goes beyond the usual rhythm to feel the drive of discoveries and a sea of impressions, and ultimately to better know ourselves and the world around us. That's what travels are for, right?
I invite you to make a trip to one of the regions of immense Russia with me and my team. I am convinced that this will turn your ideas about Russia around and show how beautiful this country is!
