Join YPT for our journey into the very recently war-torn Russian republic of Chechnya. Formerly one of the most significant areas of the old Soviet Union in respects of tourism and home to both stunning natural beauty and also the fiercely nationalistic yet extremely friendly Chechen people. It doesn’t get much more adventurous and off the beaten track than this trip.
During our time here, we’ll be crossing mountain ranges, hiking through the countryside of the volatile border area with Georgia, visiting the strange smelling sulphur springs, taking in the majesty of various monuments and of course rounding off our days with evening drinks in the vibrant city of Grozny.
This tour is part of our Summer Soviet Mega Combo but can also be combined only with the neighbouring South Ossetia Tour. Combine tours for a discount but also an experience nearly as memorable as the fall of the Berlin Wall!
If you would like to opt-out of the epic yet time-consuming train adventure and fly in and out of Grozny, it can be arranged! Get in touch with us!
