--those who love folklore, who love adventure, who want to meet the Russians who aren't in the headlines. For those who want to live village life, for those who want to share tea and songs with hospitable grandmothers, for those who speak Russian, for those who don't.
For those who want to know the heart and soul of a place, test how deep the roots run, savor the flavors, talk with the elders. For those who want to walk the Russian forest, swim in Lake Baikal, climb a volcano in Kamchatka, throw a wreath in a Russian river. And for those who want their vacations to count for something.
Our Russian folklore expeditions put you in places you're not likely to get to on your own. They also let you contribute to serious folklore scholarship through taking pictures, filming rituals, recording songs and conducting interviews. Translators and expert guidance are always available. Take a look and find the adventure that's waiting for you!
