At the Black Bear Fortress in the city of Sortavala, you will stroll through the reconstructed northern village of the 9th century and get acquainted with the life of the warlike people. And then we will go towards the Ahvenkoski waterfalls and the majestic slopes of the marble canyon.

What awaits you

Black Bear Fortress: Become a Viking for an Hour Our first goal is the picturesque historical park "Bastion" in the city of Sortavala, where we will visit Mustankarhunlinna, or the Black Bear Fortress. You will find yourself inside the reconstructed Viking village of the 9-11 centuries: look into the forge, the fortress and the house of the Jarl (prince), see the temple and the barnyard. You can touch all the exhibits with your hands and arrange a photo session in historical costumes

Ruskeala marble slopes On the way, we will stop at the Akhvenkoski waterfalls on the Tohmayok River, over which you will pass along the suspension bridges. And after us we will meet one of the most picturesque corners of Karelia - Ruskeala Mountain Park. You will have time to hike the sheer cliffs, explore the grottoes and the small lake Monferrano, visit the adits and drifts and, of course, admire the marble canyon. From me - a story about the history of Ruskeala in 1632, when she was still a Swedish land, to the present day

On the roads of Karelian legends I will supplement the northern landscapes that will accompany us on the way with stories about Karelia itself: you will find out who the Livvik Karelians and human Karelians are, hear about life, everyday life, customs of the region, about Noid shamans, labyrinths, seids and local legends … And I will also reveal to you which trees are considered sacred here, and which are the guardians of the other world.
