What awaits you

The beauty of Karelian nature We will climb to the top of the mountain of the evil spirit of Hiisi - Hiidenvuori, which offers a breathtaking view of the Ladoga skerries. Inside the mountain, there are caves cut down by Finnish observers during the war - you can visit them in summer. On the Koirinoya river, you will see a rustling waterfall, and you will also notice fragments of the Mitrofanovsky plant, the first tin-smelting and copper-smelting plant in northern Russia, which has gone into oblivion. We will share its history and tell you about Karelian rivers, rapids and waterfalls. And the highlight of our route will be Karelian almandine garnet deposit… We will reveal the uniqueness of this stone, give you the inventory - and you will try to get yourself a rare gem that has adorned the crown of Swedish kings for many centuries

Immersion in history and everyday life After we go to the museum "At the master", where you will get acquainted with the collection of household items from Ladoga. Spinning wheels, bast shoes, sewing machines, cradles, ancient braids, etc. - the guide will tell you about these finds, about the ancient Karelians and about the extraction of local minerals. In addition, you will visit the historical park "Bastion" - it includes two museums of living history
