  • Description


    Friends! We welcome all travellers to our camping place near Novosibirsk, in the village called Zavyalovo. It is a typical russian village where we live in harmony with nature. If you want to experience simple way of life, being far from big city system, pollution and noise. If you want to see marvelous nature and simply meditate on the point, if you want to know enigmatic russian soul or meet true siberians – our place is a good place for you.
    We are Alya and Dima, a Russian friendly couple with kids.
    In summer do kayak water trips for Russian tourists. In autumn and winter do online English school.
    You can join us in our kayak or hiking trips in summer or ski trips in winter. We also explore such activities as ice-fishing, kayak long distance trips, picking up mushroom and berries.
    We offer accomodation in tents. Toilet is outside. Banja is for washing. Vegetarian (mostly) home-made feeding.
    Meet people from all over the world in a laid-back atmosphere!
    We always happy to share this unique experience with foreigners and discover magic Siberia.
    Especially we are interested in baby sitters, farmers or builders. Digital nomads are welcome too.
