The time had finally come. In July the long-awaited Dagestan visit by our family from Austria took place.
Together we met old and new friends, visited the best places and took plenty of pictures.

If you want to explore Dagestan yourself, best do so at the beginning of September. The weather is mild and warm while the mountains are already changing into autumn colours. A perfect time for travelling where some of our UAZ campers are still available – the current booking status you always find here on our website.

Have a wonderful summer with your loved ones.

We were happy to show our beautiful Dagestan to another YouTuber. Here you find the first videos from his great trip (in German):

Exploring new places and making new friends

Of course, we also used our family trip to explore some places we haven’t been yet. A few more attractions have been added to our self-drive guidebook and we made new friends along the way.



One bicycle returned to the mountains

Our sporty guests, who travelled Dagestan on bicycles (and an UAZ bus) a few weeks ago, had promised one of their bicycles to a boy from a small mountain village at the end of their trip. The bike has been delivered.  Abdulla was very happy and is now paddling busily through the village streets. Thank you very much Arno!

Cooking Dagestani style - for our guests

Deep in the mountains, we met a family who is growing a small tourist business. Once we found out that their mother is an English teacher, that was, of course, reason to celebrate! Together we then developed a cooking workshop for future guests – our conclusion: delicious!
