What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

The slopes in these valleys have made the area famous for skiing, but don’t for a minute believe they go unused in summer. Downhill scooting is the new and accessible adventure activity that’s taking the area by storm. You leap on an elongated scooter with big fat tyres and plot your course down the mountains back to the gondola ski lifts. Lots of exhilaration and little effort, what more could you need?

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Nothing can quite prepare you for the variety of amazing landscapes you find in such a compact area here, making North Island a ‘must see’ on every world traveller’s itinerary for years. Now, though, you can do it in supreme luxury, and without taking a month off. Flying around by helicopter lets you sample all the best bits in just a week or two, and there is no better base than Huka Lodge. We'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions.
