About Yuri Kalika, Founder
About Yuri Kalika, Founder

My name is Yuri Kalika. Now I am 33 years old and I adore my life. I have a beautiful wife, a wonderful daughter and a super project Uventure.

I will tell you a little about my path:
Having worked one year after the university as a manager in a construction company, I realized that I was traped within the framework of an employee and I decided to create my own construction company. Since 2009, I became the founder of KARUS-Stroy LLC (www.karus-stroy.com), and the first 5 years were very exciting - the company had been doubling the turnover and profit every year. It was very interesting in the beginning and I grew up very much in this company as a person. However, after 5 years, I realized that these tasks became as a routine for me. The company was developing successfully, but I felt that I was no longer growing in it, I was bored. At that time I had already secured myself with a big house and great cars. And I began to simultaneously discover new directions - online coaching (www.business.ukalika.com), environmental certification (www.z-of.ru). I looked at how things are arranged in politics - became an assistant to the deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation (www.ukalika.com). But all this was somehow not my cup of tea. It brought me money, but did not bring joy. And I sold out all my business assets. I decided that I would do only what I really love, even if it does not bring a lot of money.

So what do I love the most?

1. Motorcycles. They give inexpressible feelings of freedom and adventure, feelings that you live a real life.
2. Nature. What can be more beautiful than forests, mountains, rivers and stunning panoramic views? I have been adoring nature since high school and even have been a Greenpeace volunteer for 16 years.
3. Travelling. Exploring new places, nature, cities, countries and cultures. All of this this fills my life with happiness. This is how the Uventure project was born ...

I realized that I don't want to put up some ambitious business plans as before, such as having 200 motorcycles in a garage in 5 years or organizing 100 tours around the world. I decided that the main value of this project will be the pleasure and emotions of my new friends who will join me in a group and custom tours. Traveling with me you will find the maximum possible freedom of the group tour and a personalized approach, so that you feel welcomed, as if you came to your best friend, and not just become another client in a huge bureaucratic mechanism. I will be very happy to show you Russia in all of its diversity.
