Karelia is located on the North-West of Russia. It is the land of lakes, rocks and pine trees forest. Nowadays this region become more and more popular among tourists due to its sparse population and close location to St. Petersburg (1000 km still means close in Russia).
Many different types of activities are available in this region: boating, fishing, rafting, biking, hiking, jeep safari, and even quadracycle. But it is also possible to try all of them during one trip.
