The Troitsko-Pechora district attracts guests with a unique moose farm in the village of Yaksha. In spring, you can taste moose milk here, and you can watch domesticated moose all year round, and at the same time visit the Museum of Nature with a rich scientific collection.

From Troitsko-Pechorsk begins the path to the famous rock formations - the remains on the Manpupuner plateau, which, like the moose farm, are located on the territory of the Pechoro-Ilychsky Biosphere Reserve. The reserve develops the ideas of ecotourism - tourism that contributes to the protection of nature and strictly regulates the number of tourists who can enter its territory during the season. Here are the natural complexes of the middle and northern taiga - the "standards" of wild nature, which must be preserved for posterity. The inhabitants of the reserve are fifty mammals and more than two hundred species of birds, many of which are listed in the Red Book. No less than tourists, volunteers are welcome here, for whom there is always work in the reserve: improvement of ecological paths, construction and repair of infrastructure facilities, garbage collection on the coast and in the forest, bird ringing, assistance in studying flora and fauna, environmental education, and so on. The reserve is located in the basin of unique rivers - Pechora, Ilych and Unya.

Pechora is the majestic, “northern Volga”, but on the territory of the reserve you can see its source, more like a modest stream than a mighty river. Ilych is more intimate, in some places compressed by picturesque rocks, which are admired by tourists who decide to raft down the river.

Every two years at the beginning of autumn, the village of Yeremeyevo, on the Ilych, awaits guests for Voralysyaslon Gazh Hunter’s Festival with a demonstration of the ancient skills of a northern man living among the taiga and rivers.

An ecological art festival Hay is taking place in Grishestav village of Troitsko-Pechora district.

For several days, a small village becomes a haven for designers, architects, artists, musicians who create their unique art objects from hay and wood.
