Route and content of the tour

What can you expect?

Early in the morning our bus will leave from Ploshchad Vosstaniya, and after about three hours of travel across the entire Karelian Isthmus, it will arrive in the town of Priozersk, formerly Kexholm. Here we will explore the Korela fortress and learn how it became one of the most famous political prisons in Russia, who were detained here ...

Then we will cross the border of the Republic of Karelia and soon arrive in Sortavala, where we will have a sightseeing tour of this ancient city on the banks of Ladoga.

And here it is, the famous Ruskeala mountain park! We will spend three hours in it, during which you can enjoy the beautiful Finnish nature, take a walk on hiking trails, climb observation platforms, and take a boat trip. And for those who like active rest, there are diving, bungee jumping, trolls (zipline), ATVs and snowmobiles - depending on the season. You will explore Ruskeala Park on your own, and the guide will tell you in detail about all the possibilities of this place.

On the way back we will visit Akhvenkoski - one of the most famous and picturesque waterfalls in Karelia. Those who wish can take a walk along the eco-trail. Then we will make a stop in the town of Lakhnedpohja, where you can drop by a fish store or tasting Karelian alcoholic beverages - also at will.

We will return to St. Petersburg at about 23.00.
