Blue Lakes are perhaps the most magnificent place of Kazan’s nature. These are non-freezing lakes with clear blue water. We will walk on a scenic route around lakes. This is my own route. During the walk will learn about the history and geology of the lakes, and I will introduce you the local flora and fauna. I will show you the best places for taking photos. Then we will have a most exciting part of our trip – we will swim in a cold ice water. During the whole year, the temperature of water is about 4 degrees. We can swim there even on the frostiest days of winter. This is the old Tatar and Russian tradition - bathing in icy water. After the lake, we will drink a hot Tatar tea on herbs with natural honey.

I am a professional ecologist, and I work at a school as a teacher of biology and ecology. Traveling is my passion, and for a last few years, I have been organizing trips for children and adults. We have even traveled to Maasai Mara national park in Kenya with my students. Usually we take eco tours - to study nature, flora, fauna and the life of locals. Therefore, I want to show to the guests of Kazan the nature's beauty of our republic, and introduce them lifestyle of locals.
We will walk 4-5 km around the lakes. This is my own eco route. We will see the highest waterfall of Tatarstan. We will visit Large and Small Blue lakes.
