Visiting Kizhi Island is possible all the year round - in summer, autumn, winter and spring. We travel from Petrozavodsk by hydrofoil in summer and by hovercraft or snowmobile in winter. In autumn and spring, we reach the island from a small village of Oyatevschina.

On a day trip guests see the main part of Kizhi architectural ensemble in the southern part of the island.

For those who want in-depth experience we have a special tour called “Kizhi Necklace” which includes overnight at a guesthouse and two visits of the island of Kizhi.
