The Prioksko-Terrasny nature reserve offers wide opportunities for eco-tourism and invites you to visit the high-altitude ecological path "Through the leaves", the Tree-house ecological Park, the Central bison nursery and the nature Museum.
The ecological path "Through the foliage" runs at an altitude of 8 meters, representing a series of bridges-crossings connected by observation platforms.

The Tree-house ecological Park is a unique project that allows you to learn about the life of a tree, as well as insects, birds and animals in a playful way. The complex of rope crossings includes four routes of various levels of difficulty at an altitude of 1 to 6 meters for adults and children from 4 years old.

The Central bison nursery has been breeding bison since 1948. It conducts scientific research on the biology, ecology, ethology of bison, methods of their maintenance, feeding and transportation. The nursery, with an area of 200 hectares, is designed for the simultaneous maintenance of 50-60 animals that are in conditions close to natural.

The nursery contains one family of North American steppe bison (the closest relatives of the bison) for comparative research and demonstration to tourists.
