River Cruise on the Volga departing from Zavidovo
The small Russian town of Zavidovo is a popular location for house boat hire as it offers a variety of possibilities. From Zavidovo you can head west to discover the city of Tver or head east and cruise from village to village. Make a stopover in Dubna, where you can admire the giant statue of Lenin, one of the largest in the world.

House Boat Rental to explore another facet of Russia
We are familiar with the great emblematic monuments of Russia, such as the “ Red Square” and the “ Kremlin”. The river cruise allows you to discover another face of this country, authentic and colourful. On the banks of the Volga River, you will be surprised by the grandiose natural landscapes of the land of the Tsars, but also by the typical Russian architecture, with its flamboyant colours.
Boat rental on the Volga is also very popular with fishermen and water sports enthusiasts. There are many places along your route to live your passion or try new experiences.
Cruising on the Volga is only done with a skipper. The price of the skipper is already included in the rental price. However, you will need to provide a cabin for him.
