Travel Itinerary and Road Trip Route

Day 1: Winter landscapes and horseback riding

The most beautiful road towards the Ural Mountains awaits you. First you will stop at the Blue Lake which is not frozen even in winter and which will give you bright pictures. After that you will stop in a ski complex to warm up from sitting in the car and to plunge into the activity in the open air. End your day near Ufa at the wonderful spa.

Gazpromneft filling station #102

Let's hit the road! To feel more confident on the road, come to the filling station "Gazpromneft" - refuel with quality fuel to full, inflate the tires, fill the washbasin and take coffee with healthy snacks! Cool emotions from the trip!

Blue Lake

A small stop for photographs of this unique natural phenomenon. The water has a constant temperature all year round, around +8℃, and does not freeze even in winter.

UYAZY TAU Ski Complex

Traditional winter fun awaits you - snowboarding, alpine skiing. The complex also has a good restaurant, so I advise you not to spend a lot of time, but to have lunch here.

METRO Cash & Carry

I advise you to stop by the supermarket to buy food for tomorrow's lunch, which will be held in the countryside and buy breakfast, as many hotels and guest houses do not provide breakfast.

Stoves House

As you can see from the name, the main element of the restaurant is a stove. The dishes are cooked on open fire using the technology "Soul in every recipe".

Country club "Fazenda"

There's a Russian sauna waiting for you tonight. The spa is open until 23:00. Pre-registration by phone from [site](https://fazendaufa.ru/services/spa/spa/) is required. If you wish, you can also stay here overnight at the Terra SPA Hotel.

Day 2: Ural landscapes

An active day outdoors awaits you. As you won't have a place to stop for lunch, I suggest you bring lunch boxes, you can order them at the hotel or just pick up some sandwiches. There are about 17 km of hiking in total and the most beautiful views of the Ural Mountains waiting for you. You can finish your day in a deserved hot Russian bath.

"Shurale's teeth."

Dress warmer, you'll be hiking to an exciting place. The length of the route will be 7 km back and forth, but you will see the most beautiful landscapes and climb to one of the highest points of the South Urals. Drive past the village of Inzer to the village of Revet, where the central manor of the South Ural State Nature Reserve is located, almost reaching the manor, turn right, into the driveway under the railway bridge. Along the railroad tracks we drive to the next bridge over Maly Inzer, near which there will be a ford, and a couple of kilometers from it Kataskin farm. If the weather is good, you can drive a little further and walk a little bit less. In spring the road is not very passable due to floods and you will have to take the train from Inzer village. In winter there are no problems, but in any case, experienced drivers recommend having an off-road vehicle for a trip to the mountains.

Ufa Mountain

From the top you should admire the majestic ridges of the Ural Mountains.

Inzer Teeth

Visit the "pearl" of Bashkortostan. The place is rightly considered one of the most beautiful in the Urals. The rocks from the river Inzer rise like teeth here. Their maximum height reaches 1161 meters. Local travel companies organize cross-country tours here all year round. It is also possible to get here without an all-terrain vehicle, but the way back and forth will take about 10 km on foot. It'll be dark on the way back, so bring a flashlight. In winter, the road is prepared by bulldozers, as it is actively used to remove wood. You can drive on it to Misselia or a little further and a little closer to the Mountain Circus. The car will have to be left, like the locals do, in the woods by the road.

Rocky cirque

The mountain circus is the most beautiful viewpoint here. Be sure to come here, believe me you will have a lot of vivid impressions and beautiful pictures to remember.

Cafe Caravan

Dinner in a cozy cafe, given that you had dinner outdoors, should be nice.

Alpine Ski Complex Adzhigardak

You've done such a wonderful hiking trip. Now you deserve a real Russian bath, if you have the strength left, which should be ordered in advance. [Booking link](http://adzhigardak.ru/категории/услуги/банный-комплекс) There is also a hotel complex, where I recommend to stay overnight, see the rooms and book on [site](http://adzhigardak.ru/гостиница).

Day 3: Alpine skiing complex and balloon flight

After yesterday's walks, today will seem much easier to you. Start it with entertainment to your liking - it can be both skiing and snowboarding, because you will start the morning at the ski resort. Then go on a hot-air balloon flight and explore the most beautiful places from altitude. Please note that the exact location of the flight must be agreed in advance.

Alpine Ski Complex Adzhigardak

In the morning you will have breakfast in the hotel complex and alpine skiing. The ski lifts open at 9am. The weekend is Tuesday.

Gastro Gallery

After the alpine skiing you should have a snack, I advise you to come to town for this. Please note that the restaurant opens at 12 o'clock.

Flight Air Club

A well-deserved reward after walking in the mountains can be a balloon. Please note that the flight location varies depending on the weather. It is necessary to agree in advance on the point of gathering and book a flight to enjoy the scenery of Bashkiria - [Aviakluba website](http://www.poletufa.ru).

Gazpromneft filling station #1

Isn't it time to stop on vacation? You can warm up, fill up and buy goods on the way at Gazpromneft's filling stations.

The holy spring in the village of Staroye Veckanovo

According to the legend, the place of the source in the dry years was indicated by angels to the local inhabitant. A small chapel was built here and the locals stop here to gather holy water.

Café Manor

A little café to get rid of the hunger.
