Weekend hikes

Weekend hikes

Auto and motorcycle tourism and weekend trips are a convenient combination for those who do not have the opportunity to allocate more than 1-2 days for outdoor activities. Weekend hikes are carried out by several participants on public roads. Purpose of the trip:

  • get acquainted with tourist sites with family or friends;
  • hone driving techniques on a car, motorhome and motorcycle;
  • have a good rest and get a dose of adrenaline;
  • get to the agreed goal (sights).

For road trips and motorcycle trips, it is important to choose roads of secondary importance. Federal, toll roads can be more convenient due to their quality, but they are, firstly, boring because of the monotonous landscapes, and secondly, they can be dangerous, especially for beginners, because of the high traffic flow: driving a car and a motorcycle will require frequent overtaking. Therefore, it is better to opt for regional roads with fairly good coverage, rich scenery, tourist sites and a minimum of traffic.

Equally important is a detailed itinerary plan prepared in advance. Logistics and timing are in the first place in Autotourism. Of course, you should not focus on a strict time frame in which there is not a single free minute, but it is also not rational to overcome tens of kilometers. How to prepare for the trip can be found in the section Useful articles.

Unfortunately, the tourist infrastructure in Russia is very far from the European one in its evolutionary development. Therefore, even booking places in a roadside hotel should be taken care of in advance. The same applies to popular attractions along the way. caravaners and motorcycle tourists: you need to order the services of a guide or guide long before the trip, and do not forget about weekends and breaks in the work of museums, galleries, palaces and other places of interest to tourists. Good timing is also important here.

Separately, each car and motorcycle tourist is obliged to take care of the reliability of his "iron horse" and motorcycle and the quality of equipment. The latter should be all-weather, and the best type of transport for a hike is enduro. Traveling alone is not justified: assistance may be needed on the road. The range of trips should be increased gradually - the format of a one-two-day trip will be the best choice for a beginner.

In Russia, there are two types of organization of weekend tours. The first one is completely independent. The autotourist himself plans his trip, calculates the time and costs of the route.

The second is provided by a travel agency employee. It takes into account all the individual requests of the tourist.
