Russia’s diverse landscape is ideal for several extreme, adrenaline-kicking activities. However, heli-skiing down a volcano ranks right up there. Try the hair-raising sport in the Kamchatka Peninsula located in the Ring of Fire, which has several active volcanoes. Helicopters drop guests on the peaks of mountains, some of them volcanoes, from where skiers glide down the slopes on fresh powdered snow right up to the edge of the Pacific.  

EAT  

Feast on Russian cuisine, especially the lesser-known dishes from northern Russia in Moscow’s Severyane, which is decked out like a magical version of a Siberian hut. It dishes up the likes of blini and pike caviar, that are best washed down with vodka. For a taste of Tsarist Russia, Palkin in St. Petersburg should do the trick with its history that goes back to the 18th century and a menu that comprises of Russian classics.  

EXPLORE  

Surrounded by Mongolia, China and Kazakhstan, the Altai Republic is among Russia’s lesser known regions and filled with stunning natural beauty in the form of snow-capped mountain peaks, river gorges, canyons and brilliant blue lakes. The best way to explore the area is to trek, preferably in summer. Especially rewarding is the area around Mount Belukha with its incredible waterfalls and glaciers
