There have always been popular destinations for domestic tourism. And Lake Seliger attracts tourists from all over the country. But such popularity also has a downside - accommodation in hotels and recreation centers on Seliger has become very expensive. Although there is always an opportunity to save money.
If you are traveling with a large family or company, rent a house or cottage. Renting a whole house is cheaper than staying at a hotel. You can rent a house in advance on specialized sites. Between May and September, it is better to do this in advance. You can just drive up to your chosen vacation spot and look on the spot which houses are being rented. The most budgetary option would be an ordinary village house. It may not have any amenities, but the view of the lake will be guaranteed. Of course, it is better to look for such options locally.
On Seliger, camping is very common. There are organized campgrounds where you can rent everything you need or come with your own equipment. Some campgrounds on Seliger offer an all-inclusive vacation, where you can find food, a bathhouse, and evening entertainment. If you do not want to pay for the bed, you can choose any place to set up your own small camp. The disadvantages of independent camping include the problem of safety. Unfortunately, in recent years, during the tourist season, the problem of theft has been acute on the Seligerskie Lakes.
Avid fishermen should look in the direction of special houses for fishermen. The conditions there are ascetic, but the price is affordable. Those who go to the lake for the whole day need a place only for sleeping and cooking.
Seliger is a cascade of lakes with different names. Among them there are popular places such as Volgo, Pino, Selizharovo region, Khachin island. This means that rest there will be more expensive than in other places.
