Travel Itinerary and Road Trip Route

Day 1: Wakeboarding, kayak rafting, horseback riding and a Russian sauna

On the first day you will master a wakeboard, conquer the stormy river on a kayak, ride a horse on the picturesque fields. Cherry on the cake is a Russian sauna, from which you can jump right into Lake Ladoga.

Wake Station

We will start our active weekend with a wakeboarding on a picturesque and warm lake near the village of Toksovo. The place is suitable for both beginners and "confident users". Besides wakeboarding, there are water skis. You can sign up for skiing by phone at [site](

Ресторан Silver

We'll have lunch at the Silver Guest House restaurant. The complex is located on the shore of the most beautiful lake in Sukhodolsk. The restaurant has probably the best view of the lake. And reasonable prices will allow you to arrange a holiday belly - I guarantee that after extreme adventures you will be very hungry!

Гребной клуб «Бурная вода»

The next point will be the rafting on a stormy, empty river. The Losevsky rapids are of man-made origin, but they boil like real! They are the largest artificial rapids in Europe. It's better to sign up for rafting in advance. For example, you can apply to the club "Rough Water". The organization offers several alloy options on a kayak or a boat lasting from 1.5 to 2.5 hours.

Gazpromneft filling station #45

There's a gas station coming up. If you are tired, make a comfortable stop - come for a coffee!

поле в приозерске

Moving towards Priozersk. Just outside the city, on Sortavala highway 13 there is a private stable. Unhurried horseback riding in the picturesque surroundings (and here, believe me, it's very beautiful!) with a professional instructor - you can't think of any better after crazy adventures on the water. You can discuss your riding options by phone listed on [page](

Гастрономическое кафе «Точка на карте»

Rest in a stylish complex "Point on a map" will quench all sorrows. The restaurant serves the best dishes of the northern regions. And if you haven't tried Danish smurrebredas yet, judge from pike-perch and dumplings with spruce oil, it's time to fix this little misunderstanding.

Самая Ладога

The splendid end of an active day will be a Russian sauna. We're going to the recreation center "Samaya Ladoga". And yes, it really stands on the very shore of Lake Ladoga, so after soaking you can plunge into the lake. Keep in mind that the sauna is designed for 6 people and it's better to book it in advance. In addition to the bathhouse, the base offers spa services: classic, Swedish and general massage, as well as stone therapy.

Day 2: Diving on Ladoga, walking among skerries, rope park.

The second day will be no less active. In the morning we will try scuba diving on Lake Ladoga, and then take a ride with the wind past the picturesque skerries. In the afternoon we will stop at the rope park to jump off a 30-meter tower and conquer the most difficult route.


Beginners and fans of diving must dive on Lake Ladoga. Instructors of the Drive Park Ladoga club in Berezovo offer a two-hour class, which includes a theoretical part and a direct dive. The cost of such a pleasure is 3,000 rubles. Recording is strictly for 24 hours.

Ладожские шхеры

The dive was a success. Now you can quietly enjoy the beauty of Ladoga "from above". The beauty of local landscapes is amazing. The coastal strip of the lake is covered by small rocky islands surrounded by narrow straits. Drive Park Ladoga offers 1- or 2.5-hour excursions along the Lekhmalahti Bay, which cost from 700 rubles.

Ресторан «Kexholm»

For lunch we will stop at the restaurant of Russian cuisine "Kexholm", where you will be fed with ear, kebab and fish.

Озеро Большое Борково

There is a rope complex "Norwegian Park" on Lake Bolshoe Borkovo. It will be quite interesting not only for children, but also for adults. 214 stages, 38 zip-lines, 11 routes with a total length of 5.5 km - sounds solid. For those who dream of flying, there is the attraction Skyfall - a free fall from a tower 30 meters high. *" Attention! The park has restrictions on weight (not more than 100 kg) and height (not less than 80 cm).


We'll stop by Levada for dinner. The restaurant of European and Russian cuisine enjoys great authority among Petersburgers. Cutlets made of elk, tuna steak and tom - your favorite dishes are always available.
