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.

  • Other: Swimming, Gym/Fitness, Cycling, Tennis, Kid-friendly.

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 the AdventureTemples travel community says…

Fine living and mutual respect is the Italian way, and just a few friendly words in the local language can open doors: a fabulous trattoria, a special wine recommendation, a stunning vantage point off the tourist trail, or a magically ornate church fresco. Make friends with your guides and bartenders and enjoy where they lead you. We'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions.
