Harbors / Marinas

In the town of Protivoie, you can rent a motorboat for the whole day to reach the village of Borok by water (sailing about 4 km). From here the journey begins in the Darwin Biosphere Reserve. Once in place, first take a look at the Museum of Nature - since its founding in the 60s, little has changed here, but the tour will help you learn a lot. After the museum we set off to conquer the ecological trails laid out in the reserve. The nature park has become home to rare birds listed in the Red Book: golden eagles and peregrine falcons, black storks, eagle owls. During the walk you can climb the observation deck for bird and wild animal watching, see the eggplant and bear scratching (and there are many of them), visit the enclosure for vipers and wounded birds. *" Attention! You can visit the reserve only with the prior permission of the complex administration.

Fishing and hunting base "Protected Mouths"

Let's go back to the coast of the Confrontier for lunch. Look at the Protected Waters base. It has an excellent restaurant serving Russian cuisine - for example, a pork fryer, fire cutlets and beef stroganoff. In the afternoon I suggest using the services of the base. You can go on a short kayak alloy, play paintball or understand the basics of mountaineering. Water amusements (wakeboarding, water skiing, banana riding), shooting gallery and fishing gear rental are also available. You can also have dinner here. The planned activities should be notified to administrators [in advance]( - at least one day in advance.

It's been an active, busy day. The best solution was to forget a good night's sleep in one of the hotels in the surrounding area.
