We will take the tourist train from here to RUSKEALA NATIONAL PARK, a paradise on earth with virgin nature and Karelia´s marble heart. The central attraction is a fascinating canyon from where marble was mined once and is now flooded with transparent underwater. We will visit the canyon, accessible and prepared and will do an underground tour of the mountain.

Today we will start with a boat ride to the VALAM ISLANDS, where we will have time for lunch upon arrival. We are in the biggest of the islands forming the archipelago. The main place of interest here is the monastery, of remote and unknown origin, and its eleven hermitages, Russian style. The island is inhabited permanently by several monks and families. We will admire the monastic and traditional life of the area and its marvellous landscapes, where more than 480 species of plants grow. Return to Sortavaka by boat. Arrival and accommodation. Important note: the ship´s summer schedule lasts from May 15 to August 31.
