One week from £1295pp - based on 2 sharing, including flights and B&B accommodation at a featured hotel

What it feels like to be there...

Every so often geography and geology throw us a nice surprise. Sochi is a warm spa town on the Black Sea coast and its neighbour Polyana is a great ski resort in the Western Caucasus. Together they create a fabulous adventure double act, allowing you to ski down a pristine piste then hit the beach for a scuba dive an hour or so later. 

What to do there…

Sochi/Polyana are packed with activities and perfect for 7 days:
  • Major: Spa/Massage, Lake-swimming, Scuba-diving, Hot-air-ballooning, Sky-diving, Horse-riding, Skiing/Snowboarding, Heli-skiing, Cross-country-ski, Cultural-visits, Historical-sites Hiking.
  • Other: Swimming, Gym/Fitness, Cycling, Tennis, Kid-friendly.

Where to stay…

Choose a seaside or mountain base, safe in the knowledge you can do all the available activities from either. 5* Rodina Grand Hotel & Spa is an imperious naval palace with opulent décor and world-class wellness centre. 5* Grand Hotel Polyana is a new luxury ski and spa resort, with amenity-rich rooms, stylish wooden villas and a private cable car station.

Some practical information worth knowing…

  • Travel: Adler/Sochi Airport is 2.5h from Moscow, 3.5h from St Petersburg. Sochi to Krasnaya Polyana is about 1h by car.
  • Weather: mild to warm and humid all year round in Sochi; mild May-Oct and cold and snowy Nov-Apr in Polyana.

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

It is fabulous to find a hidden gem and right now Sochi is just that: a little wonderland where few from outside Eastern Europe have ever been. With the 2014 Winter Olympics looming, this place is only going to get bigger. Fortunately with so much attention on its way, Russia wants it done right, so bigger should mean better. We say go now for that ‘I was there’ feeling when the Games hit your TV screen. We'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions.

What it feels like to be there...

Russia is the largest country in the world, spanning from Europe, across Asia to the edge of the Americas. The range of its societies and environments is astounding, yet it has a proud unified culture and a style all its own. Despite their austere, frosty demeanour, the people have a wicked sense of humour and a lust for adventure. 

Some practical information worth knowing…

Moscow is the main travel hub, though St Petersburg also has direct international flights. From here, connecting flights service the rest of the country, including the Black Sea resort Sochi. Arctic winds keep temperatures cold to mild all year round, so dress warmly and elegantly to match the locals.

What it feels like to be there...

For many people this region conjures up visions of spy dramas and narrow escapes. The Communist era in the East left behind lots of interesting sights and a few strange practices. But the region’s beautiful landscapes, grand castles and homely food are a recipe for pure enjoyment. Relax and be prepared for exciting surprises! 

Some practical information worth knowing…

This region is easily reached using connecting flights from all the European super-airports. Cheap flights are common even to smaller cities in tourist areas. The road network is generally good. In the former Communist states, some architecture, infrastructure and furnishing styles look functional or dated to a Western eye. The service style is also often perceived as abrupt because here it is good manners to be unobtrusive, not familiar or hands on. Visas can usually be obtained on arrival now, but queues can take time. Getting money from bank machines, airports and hotels is largely straightforward, especially in urban areas.
