Durante questo tour vengono visitati i seguenti luoghi:
L'isola di Valaam si trova nel lago Ladoga. Il famoso Monastero di Valaam fu fondato sull'isola molti secoli fa. E' uno dei luoghi di interesse più attrativi al nord della Russia dovuto al suo gran valore culturale, storico e naturalistico.
La cava di marmo a Ruskeala è il luogo di gran interesse della zona di Carelia.
In Carelia c'è qualche villaggio che rappresenta la cultura e storia della gente indigena. Ci si può vedere gli esempi dell'architettura lignea, ad esempio delle piccole chiese, cappelle e case tradizionali.
Petrozavodsk è una città molto carina che dispone dei luoghi di interesse e rappresenta il punto iniziale per i viaggi a ed altri posti culturali e naturalistici della Carelia.
L'isola di Kizhi nel lago Onego è famosa per il suo complesso di architettura lignea, cioè il Museo di Kizhi iscritto nella lista dell'UNESCO.
La Riserva Naturale di Kivach si trova al nord di Petrozavodsk (65 km circa).
Il canale Mar Bianco-Mar Baltico è stato costruito negli anni 30 del XX secolo sotto la direzione di Iosif Stalin.
L'arcipelago Solovetsky si trova nella parte occidentale del Mar Bianco, alla distanza di circa 65 km dal circolo polare, ed è formato da sei grandi isole e un certo numero delle isole più piccole. Sull'isola Grande Solovetsky c'è il famoso Monastero medioevale accanto gli altri monumenti e luoghi stroici e culturale.

We wish to congratulate you for the wonderful visit to your country. Believe us when we say that you could teach many tour operators in France and abroad! Michel keeps saying that you know how to select your collaborators... The journey was so smooth (except for the roads) and trouble-free all along. Hotel Rossi was a very good choice as it is very comfortable and close to Nevsky Prospekt. We particularly appreciated to see Alexander I waiting for us at the door of our car in Saint Petersburg railway station. Thank you again.
Nordic Travel provided us with support in terms of bookings for accommodation in 'difficult to book' places; with bookings for hydrofoil connections; with guides in various locations and with general support. We found them to be enormously helpful, well informed and responsive to even the most detailed of requests. As 'eyes on the ground' they were invaluable in helping us to do things that we might otherwise have missed. Even when Nordavia (a flight we'd booked ourselves and nothing to do with Nordic Travel) messed up a connection thereby deleting part of our itinerary, Nordic Travel were very quick with a sympathetic response and a very rapid, no quibbles, refund for the bits of their itinerary that we were forced to cancel. Their contact, Konstantin Simonov provided a very high standard of support from first e mail contact to face to face meeting in Karelia.They are an excellent and professional organisation and I'd have no hesitation in recommending them to other travellers
Thanks for a great experience. The tour of Karelia was everything we expected and more.The tour went like clockwork. Our guide Alyssa was knowledgeable, patient and quick to lend a helping hand when needed. The drivers were professional and the vans we traveled in were clean and comfortable. We have no complaints about our hotel rooms. What an experience to visit an area of Russia few Americans have ever seen! We wouldn't hesitate to book another Nordic Travel tour.
Thank you very much for arranging the Russian part of our trip. We were very impressed with your professionalism, and all the arrangements worked very well. Vladimir was a very good driver and Elena was an absolutely outstanding guide. She is extremely competent, has a lovely personality, her English is excellent and she was very knowledgable about the sites we visited. She was also very good company and the four of us got on well and had many memorable moments together, particularly dinner & vodka at Sortavala! Regarding the sites, the highlights for us were the visit to Kinerma (we have been involved in raising money to restore a traditional barn in our own small village (only 12 houses) so we could empathise with their efforts and problems), and of course the Solovetsky Islands. The train journey from Kem to Saint Petersburg was fine and I had a very memorable 70th birthday at Palkin Restaurant where we coincided with the BBC filming a programme in their series on rail journeys, so we will now appear on English TV later this year, they bought us champagne, and the restaurant staff made a special dessert with a large sparkler in the middle and sang happy birthday! So a great holiday. So once again thank you for all your help. Kind Regards
