LIGHT SUMMER NIGHTS IN KARELIA
This tour offers you a nice mixture of a relaxing and an active holiday,
sauna and a good night sleep after canoeing, hiking and biking. In June
the summer has just begun. Everything is green and bloomy. In July and
in August it is already possible to pick up berries and mushrooms. The
common things for both tours are swimming, sauna, sleeping well,
Karelian kitchen with fish, vegetables, mushrooms and berries. Just
relax and enjoy the Finnish summer and white summer nights. It does not
get dark at all.... In additional weeks we offer you full board and the
use of canoes and bikes.
