Karelia has everything that tourists who love active holidays need - fresh and clean air, beautiful landscapes, and a wide variety of entertainment.

Active Tourism

Undoubtedly, it is worth going to Karelia if you are a fan of active vacations. Tourists here usually prefer sneakers and comfortable sportswear to swimsuits and dresses, as  they  climb mountains, take part in rafting on mountain rivers and try eco tours. For those who prefer organized holidays, there are special camps to play paintball with friends and enjoy other activities. In winter, snowmobiles successfully replace bicycles and quad bikes.

Water tourism

Tourists who love water and water sports, will definitely find something interesting here. Popular activities include rafting.  Tourists can practice on the rivers of Suna and Shuya, they are quite calm and unhurried. If you like water transport, it is easy to rent a yacht or a boat in Karelia. And do not forget about the pride of Karelia - the waterfall Kivach.

Excursion program

There are a lot of places of interest to see in Karelia, and therefore organized tours are very popular here. During  excursions you will   get  acquainted with  cultural and everyday aspects of local life. And among religious people pilgrimages to holy places are popular. The Balaam monastery and the widely known Solovetsky Monastery are considered holy places here. By the way, the famous museum and monument of ancient architecture Kizhi is also located here in Karelia. And it is quite possible to combine the excursion program with ecological tourism by visiting Paanajärvi, the most beautiful reserve, or the Karelian National Park called Vodlozero.

Ecological tourism

The most famous places for ecotourism here are Paanajärvi Park (it received this name because of the lake of the same name on its territory), Kostomuksha Park, Kalevalsky Reserve and Vodlozero. By the way, in some of these reserves hunting and fishing are allowed. However, all this is under the strict supervision of the authorities. The number of tourists who can simultaneously be in the reserve is limited. This is controlled to minimize the impact on nature. So do not forget to arrange the time of your visit in advance.
