We have already described the main options for how to get to Kizhi in winter, but we will repeat them. Usually, from December to February, you can get to Kizhi through Velikaya Guba or Oyatevshchina, where then there is an air cushion transfer to Kizhi. The road to Velikaya Guba takes about 4.5 hours. It takes a little longer to get to Oyatevshchyna – about 5-5.5 hours. However, the distance along the water is different. Oyatevshchina is literally a kilometer (by water or ice) from the island.
The second option, how to get to Kizhi in winter, appears with the formation of ice on the open Onega. This usually occurs at the end of January and lasts until the end of March or the beginning of April. This is the easiest and most convenient way. Almost from the embankment in Petrozavodsk to Kizhi, airbags are sent, on which you can get to Kizhi in an hour or an hour and a half in winter. Fast, convenient, practical. And the weather rarely interferes – only heavy snowfall or wind can disrupt the event.
The third option is to fly to Kizhi in winter by helicopter. However, this option is rarely considered by tourists, as it is much more expensive than the other two.
