Natural monuments

The picturesque lake system is the main attraction of the park. The largest and bizarre in form - Lake Kenozero is surrounded by high hills. The island is decorated with several steep-sloping islands. The shore of the lake is high with sandy beaches. In the past, an important route from Lake Onega to the Northern Dvina ran along the Kenozero and the Kena River, so today there are numerous Neolithic sites, wooden structures and other historical and cultural monuments on the banks of the lake.

Another picturesque lake - Lekshmozero - is located in the southern part of the park. There is a lot of fish in its impressively clear water. And climbing mountain Hizhgora, near Lekshmozero, tourists will admire the surroundings: the forest and lakes.

Tourist routes and tours

There is a large selection of tourist programs for the whole family: summer and winter tours lasting from 4 to 7 days, water-walking routes and ecological paths, summer children's camp, canoeing in the Kenozersky National Park and many other.
