Unseen footage of Putin's recent vacation in Siberia: Extended cut (VIDEO)
The Kremlin’s press service has released previously unseen footage of Vladimir Putin’s two-day Siberian vacation, where he went fishing, hiking in the Taiga, and rafting on a mountain lake.

Putin seemed to be at home in the great outdoors as he navigated a lake while steering a boat like a pro. He also went four-wheeling through the mud and took a refreshing swim.

Sporting a wetsuit and snorkel mask, the Russian president also chased a giant pike and took part in a two-day hiking and camping adventure during his brief trip to Siberia.

His trip was enjoyed alongside Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu, Tyva leader Sholban Kara-ool, and the head of the Republic of Khakassia, Viktor Zimin.

Stunning drone and helicopter footage of Siberian landscapes can also be seen in the newly-released video.
