MORE INFORMATION

Bicycling

Bycycle rent service from the  Kurgan sport complex is a good way to visit more sights in Pertozavodsk.

Rafting

Rafting is extremely popular in Karelia. Two-hour rafting down Shuja river (8 km, 3 rapids) will give you great impressions. At the end of the route you will have a barbeque. Experienced tourists can try themselves on a 3 to 7 days rafting.

ATV-tours

Autumn is a season for fishing and hunting in Karelia, but also it is a hot season for ATV-tours. Flood, mud with snow and dirty roads will be a little problem to solve if you are riding an ATV.

Rock climbing

Most part of the territory of the republic is an undulating plain. Nevertheless, the wavy surface of the land still keeps the traces of the ancient mountains (rocks near the village Impilahti), that are  used as a territory for rock-climbing.
