Day 1

St. Petersburg - departure at 20.00 (08:00 PM)

At 18:00 (06:00 PM) embarkation will begin. Two hours later, at 20:00 (08:00 PM) the ship will sail from St. Petersburg and head towards Valaam. You will be served dinner shortly afterwards.

Day 2

Valaam. Try your best get up early on this day to enjoy some truly magnificent views while approaching Valaam!

Once you reach the island, you will have a walking tour of the sketes of Valaam, which will be followed by an excursion to the Central Manor of the Holy Transfiguration Monastery.   You can either walk to the Monastery (approx. 7 km) or you can take a hydrofoil ride (an extra 12EUR). Valaam is an archipelago of about 50 islands in Ladoga Lake. It is also the largest island in the area of Karelia, at one time belonging to Sweden. In the period of 1811-1917 the island belonged to the Grand Duchy of Findlay, a part of the Russian Empire. After the Russian Revolution in 1917, Finland received its independence. Valaam was one of the few holy places that was not destroyed and closed. After the war between the Soviet Union and Finland, Valaam was returned to the USSR. Valaam is famous for the Holy Transfiguration Monastery as well as for numerous sketes. A skete is the place where monks live keeping much stricter rules than in monasteries. On Valaam, many monks who were searching for salvation through renunciation of the world, would move from monasteries to sketes, and later become hermits. By the beginning of the 20th century, there were 13 sketes and numerous hermitages with their churches and chapels throughout the islands.
