New Year in Vodlozerye

A New Year tour to Vodlozero national park

We are going snowmobiling to the village of Kansanavolok, followed by the holiday program at the old museum house

We are out to travel across lake Vodlozero visiting its most spectacular sights and in the evening there a chance to take the Russian sauna

This is how our winter fairy tale comes to an end. We set off back on snowmobiles

   New Year in Vodlozero National Park will certainly remain in your memory. These places preserve legends of devils, goblins and mermaids, the mysterious creatures living in the forest and in the lake. All these legends miraculously coexist with the historic orthodox village of Varishpelda, the active Ilyinsky Monastery and a number of chapels. We can actually see all the beauty of the park Vodlozero and hear exciting stories and legends of these places.
