The days are getting longer again and we are already looking forward to the warm summer and to visit our favorite beaches at the Caspian Sea.

Thank you for the many inquiries we have received over the last few weeks – it is nice to see how interest in Dagestan is growing and growing. This year we are almost fully booked and even for trips that take place next year we have already received some bookings.

As you probably already know, our long-term goal is to develop sustainable international tourism in Dagestan and the North Caucasus. We already have some fresh ideas and projects in the making, which we will present to you in the next newsletter.

Thursday, February 17th, 2022 19:00 UK time (20:00 CET) will be our next online presentation about travelling Dagestan.

All the best and greetings from Dagestan,

Family holidays in the Urals 

We spent January with Svetlana’s parents in the Urals. It was nice to see family and old friends again and to enjoy a typical Russian winter with freezing frost and plenty of snow.

The wildlife of the Caucasus 

Beautiful pictures and impressions of the diverse animal world in our region can be found in this wonderful documentation.

Global politics?

As we know our friends here in Dagestan, nobody really cares about geopolitical tensions. So no matter how much sabre-rattling there is going on, rest assured that you will definitely be welcomed with open arms on your travels here in Dagestan.

Travel restrictions and visa

We flew back to Russia from Austria a few days ago ourselves – that went very smoothly.
The only recent change is that the PCR test for entry may now only be a maximum of 48 hours old (was previously 72 hours)

Russia is open to tourists from around 60 countries!
