Valaam Cruise

A trip to Valaam, located 200km away from St. Petersburg, is attractive for nature lovers. You will spend a night on a ship, resting from the hustle and bustle of the city and you will enjoy splendid sunsets on Lake Ladoga shores, the largest lake in Europe. It is going to be impressive !

This silent canton is situated 40km from the mainland. It is an ideal place to be alone. It is no wonder that monks have chosen the island in the 10-11th centuries and built a monastery to live there. Valaam is the symbol of world of spirit and the center of pilgrimages.

Nowadays over 100 monks live there on a self-sufficient basis, they eat their own fruit and vegetables, catch fish and produce cheese.

Valaam is located in Karelia, surrounded by fir forests and cliffed coasts. The forest covers 80% of the island’s territory, you will see trees 150-300 years old. There are elks, squirrels and foxes. At the moment, the question of enrollment in UNESCO is being considered. You will see plenty of monasteries and sketes and will listen to interesting stories.
