There is no doubt that Russia is a vast and varied country, with plenty to see and do whatever your interests may be. But if you're looking for some of the most stunning natural beauty on offer, then these are some of the highlights you won't want to miss.

For starters, there's the picturesque Lake Baikal. This stunning body of water is considered to be the deepest and cleanest in the world, and its surroundings are equally as impressive, with snow-capped mountains and thick forests all around.

If you're looking for towering mountains instead, then check out the Caucasus range. This formidable mountain range stretches across Georgia and Russia, providing some truly awe-inspiring scenery. It's also home to Europe's highest peak, Mount Elbrus.

If you're after some lush green landscapes, then the Valley of Flowers is definitely worth a visit. Situated in the Russian Far East, this valley is filled with beautiful meadows and rivers, making it a paradise for nature lovers.

And finally, no trip to Russia would be complete without a visit to one of its many world-famous volcanoes. The most famous of these is undoubtedly Mount Klyuchevskaya Sopka, which last erupted in 1984. With its snow-capped peaks and steaming vents, it's a sight that's not to be missed!

So if you're looking for an adventure full of natural beauty, Russia is definitely the place to go. With so much to see and do, you're sure to find something that appeals to you. So what are you waiting for? Start planning your trip today!
