Hiking trail to Tobizin cape and Shkota peninsula

It's hiking to the most beautiful parts of Russky Island. The first point is Tobizin cape that is famous by its unusual cliffs. During ages of erosion they took just fantastic shapes. This place got geologists who was studying origin of Primorsky krai very interested.
The second object is Shkota peninsula, that lies just behind Russky Island. Before Great Patriotic War Shkota was an island. But during the war here was built military school and Shkota was connected with Russian island by man-made spit. In summer spit is usually covered with water, so some water slippers are required. Shkota is famous by it's unforgettable views. There's Peter the Great Bay with innumerable islands, rose steep cliffs and picturesque straits. If you wish and if weather permitting we can get down to one of the creek for swimming. In cold season we just walk around.


We drive by car to the starting point on Russky island. Lenth of trail to the Tobizin cape is about
2. 5 km and takes about 40 minutes. Depend on season and weather we can walk around or swim. Come back to the car and drive to the Djigit creek, from which is man-made spit to the Shkota starting. We cross the spit between Russky island and Shkota and continue our route to the top of peninsula. It takes around 30 minutes. After resting we start the way back to the car standing. The total length of walking part is no more than 10 km.
No experience required but you should be in a good physical shape.
We have lunch on the trail and at the end of our trip return to your hotel.
