Russian President Vladimir Putin enjoyed a few days of swimming, fishing, sunbathing and more while holidaying in southern Siberia this week.

On his first R&R visit to Siberia, Putin also hiked through dense forest, went on an hours-long underwater dive in chase of pike and rode a quadricycle through the mountains, Russian news agency TASS reported Saturday, citing presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

“He chased a pike for two hours before eventually hitting it,” he said. “It was a very brief, but very eventful trip.”

Fortunately, Putin also remembered to take photos and video footage with a GoPro camera and a drone, including while spearfishing in a diving suit and snorkeling mask.

The Kremlin will release the footage on Monday, first on television stations and later on its website, Peskov said.
