When choosing where to spend a summer vacation, most travelers will probably prefer the sea and the beach, and the mountains will be the last thing on their minds. It so happened that the peaks and slopes are associated exclusively with the New Year holidays – and in vain! Summer in the mountains blooms with poppy fields, sparkles with snow caps, and descends with roaring waterfalls and rushing rivers from high peaks. I have compiled and shared with you the most interesting destinations for a summer vacation in the mountains. In the end, “better mountains can only be mountains that have not yet been.”

We have collected ideal places for rafting on mountain rivers here:

Adventures for the strong of spirit. The 5 best places in Russia for rafting


Mountain Dagestan is the unique nature of the Caucasus, original culture and amazing cuisine. It is worth starting to get acquainted with the region with a walk through the Sulak Canyon, where, without fully realizing what you see, you can spend hours watching eagles in flight.

From the canyon, head straight for the mysterious Gamsutl, abandoned many years ago, but carefully preserving ancient artifacts and traces of bygone eras. And finally, stop by the Tlyaratinsky State Nature Reserve to feel the 2.5 km difference in elevation and enjoy the panorama of the purest alpine lakes.

Krasnaya Polyana, Krasnodar Territory

Sochi Krasnaya Polyana is a kind of compromise for those who are drawn to the mountains and the sea. One of the most modern year-round mountain resorts in Russia, Krasnaya Polyana offers tourists hiking, rafting and paragliding, fishing and ATV routes, and for a gourmet dessert – panoramic restaurants, original spa programs and well-being and a rich life of concerts and festivals. All this is located an hour’s drive from the beaches of the Black Sea resort of Imereti, with all the attributes of a long-awaited summer vacation.

altai mountain

Gorny Altai is surprisingly reminiscent of the Alps: the same grasses, endless emerald meadows and snow-white hats, led by Belukha. But, unlike the Alps, nature here is almost untouched by man, and you will have to get to some places at the crossroads, not everything is obvious with the roads. And this “wild” is the special value of Altai: the water in the Multinsky lakes seems more transparent, and the aroma of mountain herbs is richer and more attractive.


Although the Kamchatka volcanoes cannot boast of impressive height records, in all that concerns uniqueness and originality, they will give chances to many mountain ranges. The most accessible ones are located almost within the city limits, and for the sake of entertainment, they even go on massive ascents.

Others will have to travel for a long time on a “loaf” or even fly, among them, for example, the legends of the Valley of Geysers. After such rich and emotional trips, you only want one thing: to relax in natural baths. Fortunately, as with volcanoes, everything is in order on Kamchatka.

Lena Pillars, Yakutia

Formally, the Lena Pillars are, of course, not mountains, but a series of rocks 40-100 m high, stretching for 40 km along the right bank of the Lena. But from the water, from the rail of a pleasure boat, this stone ridge looks like an impregnable monolith. Everything changes at sunset: the tops of the rocks take the shape of a fairytale castle, illuminated by the setting sun. The pillars are glowing red, and in this glow one wants to make wishes one by one and fulfill wishes.
