Traveling around Russia with the Sight Hiker team
Welcome! We are the Sight Hiker team, and we organize tours and trips to different regions of the largest country on Earth - Russia. Each such trip is literally a "small life" that each participant lives. Here everyone has their own role and area of responsibility, no one is left idle. Why is that so? Everything is simple - we do not like to provide services; we make team trips in which there is a leader and participants, where everyone is a conscious adult and everyone is included in the process. Our trips often take place in new regions and locations, and therefore suggest the possibility of leaving the comfort zone and require readiness for some adventures.
During the trip, we make a sightseeing tour of the region, which means that we are often located outside the cities. Moving by car, public transport and on our own, we organize short hiking trips to enjoy nature, visit ancient manors and abandoned temples to get acquainted with history, communicate with local residents to understand their traditions and customs; we experience all the features of life in the region. We do not interfere in the course of life of the place, but we strive to enjoy to the maximum its landscapes and originality, for which we came here. We are open to new things, do not impose our values and seek to know the region without a closed "tourist halo" and aura of comfort. Everything is as it is, everything is for real!
Although each of us has own tastes and passions, during the trip we become a single team, learn to trust and rely on each other, and also gain a lot of general impressions. During traveling, we become friends, enjoy the world around us and learn something new about ourselves. A unique experience, strong emotions and a host of breathtaking landscapes change us for the better, so after each trip we return home a little different, better people. If this is what you want, then we invite you to join one of our trips. We promise: this experience will turn your ideas about traditional tourism and travel around, and also strengthen the love for a unique and beautiful Russia! Let's discover Russian hinterland together!
From our trips we bring more than just photos - we bring vivid emotions, memories and impressions of places we want to return to!
