A ferry trip to the fortress island, a fishing lesson, and dining like a local! All with a private guide


Experience fishing in Russia and also see a very ancient fortress that was "an apple of discord" between the Russian and Swedish people. It was also a very important military point of the past. You will be able to see the museums, prisons and old walls of the fortress. You will have a touch of history and from there it is time to go fishing.

Our fishing experience will be on the shore of Ladoga lake. Your fishing leader will be a very experienced fisherman called San Sanych who will teach you how to fish from the shore and by boat and make you a very tasty dinner with fish and potatoes, strong drinks, tea and pies, the national Russian style. You will enjoy the Russian lifestyle there and have lots of fun!

In case the season is not suitable for a fishing excursion we can take another one to another beautiful island and the fortress of Kronestadt, have and excursion and a boat trip by the forts (small islands) near Kronstadt. Please contact me and I will customize this tour for you. Just enjoy!
