A week-long tour to Valaam is intended for those who have long been inspired by the mores and customs of this harsh island. In a week on Valaam you can see everything and more! On the spot you will be offered excursions to other places located even outside of Balaam. All this time you will spend in the immediate vicinity of the brethren of the monastery, you will take food in the refectory with them and spend time at divine services. In the evening, you can enjoy the nature of the Valaam archipelago, walking along its paths and trails. If the summer is warm, you can swim in Lake Ladoga, but this should be done modestly, without attracting the attention of other people!
