Rent a cottage
If you want to spend your holiday as the Karelians do, then there’s no better way than to rent a holiday cottage.
Whether you seek a magnificent country house or a modest little log cabin, you are
sure to find accommodation to suit your tastes in Karelia. Holiday cottages for hire are usually to be found at the waterside and are generally rented by the week.
The rents vary according to the standard and furnishings of the cottage, but a four-berth chalet in good standard can probably be hired for about 315 € per week. The price includes pots and pans, bed linen, firewoods as well as the use of the sauna and a rowing boat. Using your cottage as a base, you can go out picking berries and mushrooms or just visit local places of interest. Many holiday cottages are also fit for winter habitation.
