What you can expect

Take a guided tour of Sochi and see why it is one of the most visited resorts in Russia. Learn the history and some interesting facts about the Olympics whilst taking in the breathtaking mountainous views. Today the entire world hails the city of Sochi as the capital of the XXII Winter Olympics and XI Paralympic Games in 2014. Do not miss the opportunity to learn more about the city as the capital of the Olympics - we are glad to offer you the most relevant tour of modern Sochi.

Meet your guide at your Sochi hotel and start your tour to enjoy spectacular views of the seaside and mountainous areas of Sochi as well as discover the heritage of the XXII Olympics in Sochi!

The territory of the Olympics is divided geographically into two parts:the Coastal (Olympic Park) and the Mountain (Krasnaya Polyana) clusters. The Sochi Olympics is regarded as the most geographically circumscribed in the history of the Winter Olympic Games and as a symbol of contemporary Russia. All sports venues both near the sea and in the mountains were built from scratch in 6 years period and made Sochi all year round resort.

First, start your way to the Mountain cluster - go to the mountain peaks in the direction of Krasnaya Polyana. Depending on where you stay the road can take about 1-1,5 hours. Your tour will take a picturesque path along the valley of the mountain river Mzymta, the longest and deepest river in Russia that flows into the Black Sea.

On the way you will enjoy unforgettable views of mountain gorges and lush green landscapes.Explore one of the most popular ski resorts of Krasnaya Polyana - Rosa Khutor. There you will have enough time to stroll through the local streets, as well as climb the Olympia cable car straight to the Rosa Plateau observation deck, which offers a wonderful view of the entire resort. Take a unique chance to get to the height of 2320 m to Rosa Peak (alpine zone) - one of the highest viewpoints in the mountains with a unique 360-degree panoramic view.

After that make your way to the Coastal cluster and see the famous Olympic Park of Sochi. Whilst here you will learn interesting details of the construction of the Olympic facilities such as the Fisht Stadium and Iceberg Skating Palace. Learn some secrets about the opening ceremony of the XXII Olympic Winter Games before finishing your day with a light and music show - the Bowl of the Olympic Flame (upon availability).

At the end of the day enjoy a transfer back to the hotel.
