The Baydary Valley

Baydary Valley
Operation: year round
Location: Orlinoye, Orline
 
Extending for over 16km, the beautiful Baydary Valley is a true gem of the Crimean landscape. The necklace of the Crimean Mountains encases a wide, sometimes up to 8 km, dole. The place has a lot to offer to a natural adventures lover: mountains, rivers, lakes, waterfalls, canyons and caves. Thanks to benevolent climate, juniper groves, beech and yew forests, thickets of cornelian cherries and hazelnuts flourish in the Baydary Valley. Abundant flood plains are overgrown with high grasses, flowers of meadows and forests. If you arrive on time you might see either orchids blooming or encounter a boar family or a couple of roes or hares. There is a plenty of historically valuable sights in the valley too. The most recognizable are the pre-historic stone menhirs in Skelya (Rodnikovoye Village) shaped in the form of obelisks. Other sights, such as the ancient settlements and burials, can be found with a guide-archeologist mostly. Another highlight of the Baydary Valley is the Skelskaya Cave discovered in 1904.

The Ukraine is a beautiful and fascinating country, but also a difficult one to get around in without local knowledge, especially of the language. It is also one of the very few places I have visited where people are uniformly polite and friendly with visitors and where virtually no one tried to rip me off. Fantastic.
Tanya and Igor worked tirelessly to give me the holiday I wanted at the price (not exorbitant) that I wanted to pay and always with a rare charm and personal attention. I spent two weeks in Odessa staying in a private, rented apartment and I had a brilliant time. It's a wonderful, beautiful and vibrant city. Catch it now, before the package tourist hordes discover it. I arranged and paid for it all by e-mail through Unipress and it was the easiest to arrange and best organised trip I've had in a very long time.
