Watch Russian adrenaline junkies cut giant ice raft for party picnic

Russia Beyond
Friends upload a video of their annual gettogether – which is a little more extreme than most reunions.


A group of young Russian men cut a huge hunk of ice from the River Don and used it as a makeshift raft. Not only this, but they transformed it into a party zone, complete with a campfire…and bath. One of the revellers, Bogdan Korzhenevsky, says he and his 15 friends meet for the ritual every year.

Footage shows them cutting the ice with chainsaws – this year two broke – before making a fire and heating water for the bath. They also enjoy some wakeboarding behind a boat. Korzhenevsky says the picnic lasts an entire day, during which the ice usually breaks up into several parts – but this doesn’t stop the party.
