09.45 – The first stop on the way during the excursion Girvas – Marcial waters – Kivach – this is the resort of Marcial waters. This resort was founded under Peter I when they discovered water with a high iron content. Near the resort there is a sanatorium where you can purchase a ticket with wellness treatments. It is still valid, and water from glandular springs is used for a number of them. It is believed that water from these sources helps to increase the level of iron in the blood, which reduces the unpleasant effects of a number of diseases and increases immunity. The name of the resort comes from the god of war and iron – Mars. Also during the tour you will visit the small museum and the church of the Apostle Peter. Water can be tasted and taken with you, however, its shelf life is only a few hours. Further, the iron settles to the bottom in the form of a cloudy red sediment. Peter I himself four times came for treatment to the resort he founded.

During the walk you can enjoy the local nature, as well as look into the museum of local lore. All the trees and the most interesting plants in the reserve along the trail are signed. The waterfall itself, about 10.7 meters high, does not freeze even in the winter season. Before the construction of the hydroelectric power station on the river, it was one of the largest flat waterfalls in Europe, however, due to the drop in water level, it lost this status. Nevertheless, for the European region Kivach is still a large waterfall

14.40 – Departure to the last point of the route, Girvas volcano. For 2.6 billion years, this volcano erupted in such a way that not one of the modern eruptions in the last couple of thousand years is unlikely to be compared with it, but now it is very difficult to understand that such natural phenomena took place here. Girvas Volcano was discovered quite by accident as a result of the drainage of the Suna River. In its channel (or rather, this river was in the vent and lava flows of the volcano), it was discovered. The tour is dedicated to the geology of the Karelian region and its nature. The hill offers a good view of the Karelian forests.
