Yew and Box-Tree Grove Tour

Yew and Box-Tree Grove

4 hours

The ancient natural beauty of Southern Russia is yours to discover during this visit to Sochi's Caucasian National Reserve.

Depart the pier by coach for the scenic drive to the Caucasian National Reserve, which spans 750 acres, and is located approximately 12.5 miles from the center of Sochi. The road you will travel on en route to the grove runs along the bank of the Khosta River, and the valley deepens further upstream. Upon arrival at the Caucasian National Reserve, a visit will be made to the ancient primeval forest, where the cool air is redolent with the misty smell of fallen leaves. The crowns form a solid green mass that obstructs the sunshine, and light green tufts of moss hang down from gnarled branches.

During your visit to the Caucasian National Reserve, you will visit the Box Tree and Yew Grove. The slow-growing box tree, or Buxus sempervirens, is an evergreen tree with small leaves, and a life span of 500-600 years. However, some of the giant yew trees in the grove are actually more than 700 years old. The grove is also home to the unique relict trees, and a diverse array of animals and birds.

Following your walk about the forest, you will next proceed to a local restaurant for refreshment. Then you will re-board your coach for the return drive to the sea port. At the end of the excursion you will be able to see Olympic clock. The guests can also visit BOSCO shop that was one of the main sponsors of the Olympic Games.
