3000 km along the roads of Karelia

It is well said "on the roads of Karelia", in many places there were no roads at all, but we were ready for this, especially our cars were created for such trips. Six days behind the wheel of a Mitsubishi Pajero flew by quickly. There remained a lot of impressions from Karelian beauties, sunsets and sunrises, swimming in the White Sea on a white night, meetings with people, sights of north-west Russia. Soon I will show you all this in detail, and I will begin with the key points of the expedition.

1. Well, let's go! Moving Moscow - St. Petersburg - Petrozavodsk is of no particular interest, I’ll skip it, and I will immediately start from the village of Girvas, 100 km from Petrozavodsk. There, on the track prepared for the jeep safari, we checked our cars for cross-country dunes, rocks, forest paths and saw the first beauties of Karelia.

2. Mitsubishi Pajero, which, unexpectedly, instead of Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, I got the task by 5 points. The photo shows the Palaeozerskaya hydroelectric station and a paleovolcan age of 2 million years on the Suna river. It is raining, but warm and we are attacked by hordes of mosquitoes.

3. It is also possible to drive a car along these rocks, but we did not dare to do this on our brand-new Padzherik, but we used the “pumped” Kruzaki off-road Aviator teams.The Aviator sports team is like-minded people who are united in their love for off-road vehicles, car tourism and motor racing. The team was created in 2006, first as the family crew of Sergei and Tatiana Kirillovskikh, but gradually its ranks spread as well as the range of tasks. “Aviators”, as they are called amicably in a dzhiperskoy environment, began not only to go to off-road competitions, but they themselves organized in 2009 the annual motor festival “Girvas”. Go to the team site and book jeep tours in Karelia.

4. In the morning, refuel at the Lukoil-North-West Oil Products company’s Silver Shamrock auto-expedition partners, draw lots and go! Our crew fell route to Arkhangelsk. It looks like this: New Vilga - Kargopol - Arkhangelsk - Petrozavodsk - St. Petersburg. These are control points where we stop for the night, and so, the teams are given complete freedom to choose points of interest along the route.

5. Without losing time, we set off, and the first stop is the city of Medvezhegorsk. Panorama of the city from Mount Coot, where during the Finnish War was the enemy fortified. There are few artifacts left, but the view of Lake Onega is fascinating.

7. Overnight in Kargopol, which arrived late at night, and forth, in Plesetsk. I will show Kargopol later, because we did not see it ourselves that day, since we need to arrive at the checkpoint of the closed city of Mirny by the appointed time.

9. Closer to Arkhangelsk appeared not only cellular communication, but also DPS cameras. I hope their "catch" from our crew will be minimal :).

10. While driving our Padzherik, we used special driving sunglasses, which were made for us by the Neva Optics company. By the way, such glasses are different: “all-weather” - they completely delay ultraviolet radiation harmful to the eyes and increase the contrast of the surrounding “pictures”, polarization - they “quench” excess glare and reflections, they can even be with diopters.

11. Arkhangelsk is the final point of the route, and there we were waited for a delicious dinner in the restaurant "Postal Office in 1786." This is one of the best restaurants in Arkhangelsk, which enabled the tired crew of the Silver Shamrock Expedition not only to eat a piece of meat, but also to have a rest,after a few hundred kilometers a glass of good beer. Great interior, delicious food, friendly staff, humane, by Moscow standards, price tag.
Will be in Arkhangelsk, be sure to go, you will not regret!

13. White Sea in the "white night". This has never happened in my life! It is something! Sandy bottom, to the depth it is necessary to go 100 meters, the water temperature is about 20 degrees. It is quite comfortable for this region.

15. By the way, all our cars were equipped with trackers from the FindMe company and we did not need to call back from each locality. The organizers of the rally could track us in real time, just like everyone who watched our expedition. During the trip, the site of the company several times "lay down" on the number of visits.

21. We are again in Kargopol. Ancient city with ancient temples. There are two versions of the name of the city: Cargo - in the northern dialects of "crow", therefore, the cargo field - "crow field" and from the Karelian Karhupeldo "bear side". Choose the one that you like best.
