Excursions to Karelia for 1 day are in great demand among residents of Moscow and St. Petersburg. This is primarily due to the fact that Karelia is not very far from these megacities and you can get to the right place relatively quickly. Also, school or corporate groups (corporate vacations) often go on day excursions. The most optimal travel option, if tourists do not plan to call on Valaam and in the Ruskeala mountain park, starts from Petrozavodsk, which can be reached by train, car or even by plane. About 6-7 trains leave from Petrozavodsk train station daily to Moscow and St. Petersburg, so there are no problems with tickets. Many come to Petrozavodsk on the high-speed train “Swallow”. It takes about 5 and a half hours to travel from St. Petersburg. The following daily tours are the most popular: Kizhi island, Ruskeala marble canyon, Valaam island, Kivach waterfall and Marcial waters resort, a trip to the village of Kinerma. Daily excursions to Kizhi island in Karelia are most common among travelers. From the Petrozavodsk railway station you should get to the port and take the Meteor. All Meteors leave for Kizhi in the morning and return in the evening, so you can catch the evening train to Moscow or St. Petersburg. One-day tours to Valaam Island are also very popular, however getting to the famous
the archipelago is more convenient from St. Petersburg. In the summer, buses leave the city to Priozersk almost daily. Next, about 1 hour, a trip to Meteor along Lake Ladoga is due, and tourists get to Valaam. They return to Petersburg at about 11-12 a.m. And on a one-day trip in Karelia to the marble canyon of Ruskeala, you can go from Petrozavodsk and St. Petersburg, as this attraction is approximately equidistant from both cities. The canyon is of artificial origin. Previously, marble was mined here, but in the thirties the adits were flooded, and an amazingly beautiful lake with emerald green water formed. Also interesting places for visiting which lasts 1 day are Kivach waterfall and Marcial waters resort. These places are very popular among those who love nature tours. There are a number of other excursion routes in Karelia. For example, many people come to the republic to ride ATVs in summer or snowmobiles in winter. Also popular are fishing and just holding small parties in rural hotels in nature. Tour operator “Polar Aurora” organizes individual and group excursions to Karelia for 1 day for everyone at any time of the year.
