The base in the mountains is the "Formula of active recreation".

GPS: 44.204653, 40.084384

A significant difference from other accommodation that guests should know about is the location. Our base in the mountains is brand new Scandinavian–type cottages surrounded by a mountain forest at an altitude of just over 1000 m above sea level. The nearest settlement is located 15 km away. The same distance to the checkpoint of the Reserve. Two hundred meters from the paved road in no way violate the serenity of the forest zaimka. 

Our guests talk about the special atmosphere prevailing at the recreation center. In spacious rooms (25 sq. m. m) the rooms are warm and cozy. Standard conditions for two- and three-bed accommodation, and we also have a couple of family two-room apartments. Our mountain base is small, designed for 25-30 people, this is due to an individual approach and special attention to everyone. 

The base in the mountains belongs to a tour operator that conducts all active events. Moreover, all the components of the active program: rafts, bicycles, jeeps, buses, equipment, mountain shelters are the property of the host tour operator. For our guests, this means that there are no problems, expectations, inconsistencies, misunderstandings, and also that nothing will interfere with your adventures! 

Our delicious cuisine is natural, fresh, varied, cooked from the heart. 

Guests are involved in a kaleidoscope of adventures from morning to late evening. What it will be: a wood—burning sauna, a guitar by the campfire or wine with kebabs on the cozy veranda of the cafe - it's up to you. The instructors, who, like the guests, live at the base, will help to organize a pleasant pastime. 

The base "Formula of active recreation" 4 nights

The recreation center “Formula of active recreation" consists of four new comfortable cottages decorated in Scandinavian style. They perfectly fit into the forest landscape of the middle mountains of the Azish range. 

Bright rooms decorated with natural wood, with all amenities, cozy verandas and picnic areas.

Parking is available on site, there is an excellent wood-burning sauna and a kitchen for common use (2 gas stoves, kitchenware, cutlery).
