Active recreation places within a radius of 100 km from Krasnoyarsk
Every day off is a great opportunity to make your life brighter and give yourself a trip at minimal cost! Make discoveries and get to know our native lands! Fortunately, we have plenty of wonderful places for this! Here are 7 picturesque hiking trails for eventful and healthy walks on autumn and winter weekends within the city and within a radius of up to 100 kilometers from the city:
► Vetluzhanka Ski Stadium
The Vetluzhanka stadium, immersed in a dense forest, will be an excellent place to relax if you have already visited almost all the main tourist spots of Krasnoyarsk and its suburbs. A large number of hiking routes of varying length and difficulty, from simple walks along an asphalt path or forest trail to an urban hiking route. You can also go to the eco-park "Gremyachaya Griva" and other vidovki and routes passing in the area from here. You can find this route in the mobile app "Krasnoyarsk Hiking" in the maps of the eco-park "Gremyachaya Griva".
In autumn, you can ride a bike along the many forest paths, and in winter you can rent cross-country skis and run along different lengths of ski trails. Children will enjoy riding snow tubes and sleds down a gentle and safe slide, and adults can ride through deep snowdrifts on a snowmobile or ATV (but only along tracks specially equipped and authorized by the stadium administration and using the services of the organizing companies of this type of recreation!). You can also rent a gazebo, a tent, a wagon and cook a delicious meat on an equipped barbecue at the stadium.

If you drive away from the city for almost a hundred kilometers, you can get into a real wilderness! And there is an endless, dense taiga for many kilometers around you and no chance to get a cell phone signal! Urman is a stunningly beautiful place 94 kilometers from Krasnoyarsk. Here Mana makes a huge loop, almost 14 kilometers long! Unfortunately, the entire loop can only be seen from a height or by taking a photo with a drone.
