Locals spend their vacation here and show off beautiful nature to the tourists.
What can you count on travelling to this picturesque area? Of course, you’ll get all the possible entertainment that Volga river provides. You’ll take a speedy powerboat ride, dash through narrow river branches and have a picnic on one of the sandy islands. For those who prefer active weekends, the Volga offers extreme water sports, canoeing on the rivers of Saratov region, jetskiing and yaсhting. These activities demand different physical fit of the tourist but anyone can find the one that suits him. Among the most thrilling are: wake boarding — a surface water sport which involves riding a wakeboard over the surface of a body of water; kitesurfing — a surface water sport combining aspects of wakeboarding, snowboarding, windsurfing, surfing, paragliding, skateboarding and gymnastics into one extreme sport and wakesurfing, which is the fast growing water sport on the Volga River today. Note that you don’t even need the ocean to experience the thrill and excitement of surfing. You may also experience canoeing, that is available to everyone. You don’t even need any previous canoeing experience, specialist kit or skills…just turn up and have a go!
Moreover, instead of booking your hotel in the centre of the city examine one of the tourist camps, located just on the bank of the Volga. Imagine, you wake up in the morning, listening to the water purl and birds singing, have a tasty breakfast outside on the patio, surrounded with green forest and river and go fishing or boating with your family or friends. Fantastic vacation, isn’t it?
