Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Por. Bridge — por. Stairs — por. Kolokoski — pore. The saucer

    We will meet in Petrozavodsk at the arrival time of train No. 18 (Moscow — Petrozavodsk) at about 07:50. 

    A greeter with a sign will be waiting for you on the platform of the railway station.

    During breakfast in the cafe (buffet), we get to know the instructor and other tour participants better. 

    Let's get on the buses and go on an adventure! 

    There is 170 km of road ahead.

    For those who want to come by private car, there is a paid parking lot in the village of "Uuksa" (the end point of the route). It is necessary to order a taxi to the starting point (for an additional fee, independently).

    We have arrived at the camp! 

    We have lunch in the field and prepare our equipment for going out to the river. 

    After a detailed briefing, we take seats on catamarans and rafts and go out on the water. 

    Catamaran rafting on the Uksa River: por. Bridge (2-3 k.s.) por. Stairs (2 rooms) — por. Kolokoski — pore. Saucer (3 k.s.), 12 km. 

    The vinegar is thick and therefore popular among water tourists. The main obstacles are in the lower reaches. They belong to 3-4 categories of difficulty. 

    After a long and eventful day, we recuperate with dinner and go to the tents. 

    It's time to rest!

  • Day 2 - Por. Salmon — por. Sirnitsankoski — por. Mill
  • Day 3 - The final day of the rafting: por. The mill is a port. Canyon — port. Khramina — shivera Likhaya — P. Uuksa
