Rest in Karelia in winter is fundamentally different from holidays in other places of our vast country. This is silence, calmness and almost complete absence of people. All over the territory of Karelia, and so only 700,000 people live. But if you move 20 kilometers away from a large city, then you will not meet anyone for the whole day.
The main types of leisure during the rest in Karelia in winter are baths and fishing. Every year, thousands of fishing enthusiasts spend the New Year, February and March holidays, settling down on the Karelian reservoirs next to the hole. And in the evening these same fishermen take a steam bath or warm themselves in Finnish saunas. Many also come with their families. And while the head of the family is fishing, the spouse and children can take a walk, ski or go on an excursion.
Another type of recreation in Karelia in winter is excursions. Fortunately, there is something to see. Ruskeala, Kizhi, Valaam, Kivach, Marcial Waters, Bastion, Kinerma, Rubcheila, White bridges, Konevets. These are just the main routes. For more active types of recreation in Karelia in winter, snowmobiles and alpine skis are provided. Of course, there are no ski resorts in the direct sense in the region, but there are several good ski slopes where adults and children can ride. But there are husky sled dogs and reindeer appeared not so long ago. In some places there is also an open-air zoo, where tigers, bison and other animals are found. So you can spend your vacation in Karelia in the company of cute animals. Keeping a husky sled dog at home is a horror, and in the Karelian open spaces it is the place for it.
For recreation in Karelia in winter, you need to choose a suitable hostel. Fortunately, there are no questions with this. There are several thousand offers of tourist centers, individual cottages and hotels on the territory of the republic. The most expensive options are located on the Karelian Isthmus from St. Petersburg to Sortavala. Every year this area becomes more and more popular.
And what kind of rest in Karelia in winter is without good food? Just recently, the region was able to reach certain heights in this matter. Almost every hotel has its own restaurant not only with European, but also with local cuisine. And in each place, these dishes are different, so you can arrange a gastronomic tour, comparing where and what is tastier.
The most successful time for recreation in Karelia in winter is the period from mid-December to early April. It all depends on the layer of snow and ice conditions. Recently, there have been winters when the ice on the Onega and Ladoga lakes rose by the end of February. Perhaps global warming is causing it. However, lakes usually freeze over by mid-January. Already at the end of December, small reservoirs are quite suitable for the passage of medium-sized equipment and walking on them.
If you are planning a vacation in Karelia during the winter holidays, it is better to take care of finding a place and booking in advance. For New Year’s holidays in the most popular tourist centers, booking begins in mid-September. And in December it is already very difficult to find something worthwhile. The same goes for excursions. For example, at the end of November in Ruskeala there are practically no places left for excursions during the New Year period.
The Polar Aurora travel club annually helps hundreds of tourists to organize their holidays in Karelia in winter. We are waiting for your applications!
