New Year's days in Crimea. Sudak and the New World

Crimea in winter is special, unique, New Year's Eve! We used to associate it with the gentle sun and the warm sea, but this blessed land can be completely different – moderately harsh, shrouded in a haze of refreshing, cool breeze.

At this time of the year, you can feel the real, touching soul of the peninsula, see the majestic mountains, listen to the unusually silent beaches and alleys dusted with pearl snowflakes.

Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Sudak city, eco-trail to Cape Alchak

    12:30 Meeting at the railway station in Simferopol.

    13:00 Gathering of the group at the airport in Simferopol.

    15:00-15:30 Gathering of the group at the bus station in Sudak.

    Transfer from Simferopol to Sudak (about 2 hours).

    After settling in a cozy hotel, we will stroll through the picturesque streets of a half-asleep city dressed in festive tinsel, look into shops selling fragrant rose oil and delicious vintage wine.

    Next, trekking starts at Cape Alchak, the most famous in Sudak.

    This place, without exaggeration, is sacred for Sudak residents and guests – an ecotrope runs along the tip of the cape, from where in winter you can see deserted wild beaches and a cool, dark sapphire sea with white tufts of incoming waves.

    Next, we will go out to the mysterious grotto, in which the invisible owner, the god of the winds Aeolus, has settled since ancient times. The through cave is called the Aeolian Harp.

    From here, the Genoese Citadel, the main beach of Sudak and the snow-covered surrounding cliffs are perfectly visible.

    Tours of the Crimea in winter can not do without a photo session, and pictures of dormant nature are even more amazing than a summer rainbow of colors.

    The active part of the tour: 5.8 km, altitude difference of 30-150 m, trekking duration of 3-4 hours.

Tour organizer's comments

The route is trekking and provides for walking through mountainous (rugged) terrain. This type of active recreation involves daily climbing and dropping heights (ascents and descents).
The route runs along mountain trails and dirt roads.

Along the routes, there will be a 90-120 m elevation difference per day for three days, and a 300-450 m elevation difference for two days of the route. Climbing up 90-120 m is about like climbing 30-40 floors.
