08:00 Meeting with the guide and instructors in Petrozavodsk. Each jeep will take 2 persons. Transfer to southern Karelia using highway (180 km).

12:00 Visit of the highest canyon waterfall of Karelia (19 metres). The road to the waterfall is only passible with off-road vehicles.

14:00 Visit of the Ruskeala Waterfalls and Ruskeala Mountain Park. The gem of the park is a marble canyon, which is both a natural and an industrial sight. Ruskeala marble was mined for decorations of the St.Petersburg palaces and cathedrals. Today massive walls of grey and white color and emerald waters of the flooded centre of the canyon make it one the most visited sights in Karelia. Ruskeala Waterfalls are located not far from the Ruskeala Montain Park. Though the waterfalls are comparatively small and the highest is not more than 4 m high, the landscape is so picturesque that it has been used several times in Russian movies. Picnic Lunch. Driving back to Petrozavodsk using highway.

18:00 We stop in the area of Tulmozero iron factory. Errected in 1762 the factory used to produce up to 160 tons of steel and iron per year. Today ruined factory workshops resemble a medieval castle, built of massive stones and bricks.

21:00 Arrival in Petrozavodsk.
