Hello May! Finally we are happy to announce the beginning of summer season on Kizhi Island. Only a bit more than 2 weeks are left before the opening of the summer navigation from Petrozavodsk to Kizhi Island by hydrofoil.
Summer tours around Karelia are already on sale! We are happy to offer you a vast choice of short trips and long tours, which cover the most famous Karelian sights and places off the beaten track!
Tours to the Kola Peninsula are extremely popular in winter. Aurora hunting, dog sledding, meeting Sami people, and visiting the first nuclear ice breaker are on the must-do list of our guests.
We have so much fun every time we travel together with our nears and dears, and we wanted our business partners not only to see Karelia but to feel how wonderful a family trip to Karelia can be.
Our courageous guests did not only enjoy dog sledding, but also tried dinner cooked on campfire and spent a night in a tent in the Karelian wilderness!!! We are so proud of you, guys!!! And we are so happy that you enjoyed this adventure!
Winter is already reigning in Karelia!
The land is covered with white snow, the lakes are almost frozen.
All this gives the wonderful opportunity to spend your holidays in Karelia.
This New Year Eve was the most exciting and unusual at the same time! We were happy to celebrate the New Year in Kondopoga, the second largest city of Karelia, with 98 guests from 11 different countries.

We work for you to bring the best memories of your travels!
