1. Sightseeing on a Helicopter
If you feel that exploring Saint Petersburg by boat is too boring, use a helicopter!
30-minutes tour above the city is an unforgettable experience. One of the landing fields is a green lawn by Peter and Paul’s Fortress.
2. Fly an Airplane
If a helicopter flight is not thrilling enough, opt for a plane.
You can choose to be a co-pilot of a 2-seater plane or enjoy the flight in a more spacious 4-seater plane. Breathtaking views and overwhelming emotions are guaranteed!
3. Kalashnikov Shooting Practice
This is a chance for you to feel like a Russian mafioso from the movies.
After a brief training, you will pull the trigger of the AK-47, the world-famous automatic rifle created in 1947 by engineer Mikhail Kalashnikov.
4. Adventure and Zip Line Park
It is another way to get some adrenaline, especially if you are afraid of heights.
For example, there is a chain called Norway Park that has different locations. The first one is within the city, on Yelagin Island. Another location is in the real forest 60 km from the city, in a place called Orekhovo. Check their website for more information.
If rainy weather ruins your plans, don’t stress and visit adventure park indoors. One of them is called Energia visoty (“The Energy of Heights”) and has rock-climbing facilities as well.
5. Tank Tour
This experience is great for those who are interested in military tourism.
During the tour, you will have an opportunity to inspect and ride real tanks and armored vehicles.
6. Paintball in Saint Petersburg
There are various companies that offer you paintball experience indoors and outdoors.
For example, this club has 6 cool playgrounds and organize “open games” from time to time. It means that it is possible to play paintball even if you don’t have a team.
