    We meet at the Finlandsky railway station, get acquainted with the instructors and the group, buy tickets to Kuznechny, take the train and hit the road.

    You can get hooked in Devyatkino or get to Priozersk by car, park your car in the parking lot on the central square of the city and get into the carriage with the group.

    In the Blacksmith Shop, we disassemble modules with food and public equipment and "under backpacks" on the way!

    We will walk about 16 km to the end point, making stops, big and small snacks, singing songs and playing along the way for "light legs". On the way you will meet: a quarry, a quarry, huge trucks, fords, crossings, beaver tracks and spring flowers.

    When we reach Dvinsky Lake, we will find ourselves a couple of kilometers from the main goal – Yastrebinoye.

    Here we make a stop, cook a delicious and well-deserved lunch.

    After a hot meal, we will definitely have a second or tenth breath. We won't even notice when we reach the lake and the campsite.

    We set up tents, cook dinner and share our impressions of past adventures.
