Thanks to low temperatures in the first part of January, the Onego Lake has completely frozen. The ice is thick enough to start 1-day tours by hovercraft from Petrozavodsk to Kizhi Island. The first hovercraft leaves Petrozavodsk on the 28th of January.
Snowmobile tours to Kizhi will start in February. The first 2-day snowmobile safari to Kizhi Island will take place on the 3rd of February.
