Day 1

We will be glad to meet you in the airport of St. Petersburg and transfer you to the luxury hotel “Astoria” (Rocco Forte Hotels) where you will be provided with all necessary assistance to fill-in the tour documents. After that we will be delighted to invite you for dinner in one of the best restaurants in St. Petersburg.

Interesting fact: In 2019 Hotel Astoria became the only Russian hotel in Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards. The hotel is mentioned in three reviews – the best Hotels in the World (16), Top 10 Hotels in Europe (5), and Top 25 Hotels in Northern Europe (2).

Day 2

This is going to be a really busy day! After the breakfast you will see the well-known sites of St. Petersburg that is acknowledged to be one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Then, we will drive across rivers and bridges to our first stop outside the city – the famous “Ryba na Dache” rural restaurant. Enjoy a delicious lunch and after that keep on driving! Our path lies towards Karelia lakes and cliffs through curving roads and centuries-old pine forest. Sunset will catch us in the heart of Karelia, near Sortavala town in the nature resort “Ladoga Manor”.

Interesting fact: The architect of this mansion and park – Mr. Eero Saarinen – was one of the founders of height architecture in the USA. He is famous for designing one of the world’s first skyscrapers – the General Motors Technical Center building in Detroit, MI.

Day 3

This day is devoted completely to Karelia, its beauty and magic of North! Whatever it takes to get to the places of our interest – driving through unpaved roads, crossing wooden bridges and rivers, challenging climbs and slopes – Porsche is here to make it. After switching from high-speed driving to careful off-road maneuvers and back several times we finally reach our destination – the Ruskeala Reserve Park, a momentum to the cliff architecture built by nature.

Interesting fact: Porsche off-road achievements are included in the “Guinness Book of World Records”. It was in Paris airport named after Charles de Gaulle where Porsche Cayenne has moved Air France Airbus A380 with total weight of 285 tons for the distance of 73 meters.

Day 4

Now that we have touched the enchantment of Karelian nature, it is time to leave the welcoming hotel complex “Ladoga Manor” and steer back to the twisting shore of Gulf of Finland. The Scenic Highway will bring us back to the heart of St. Petersburg. The final destination of our trip is “Astoria” (Rocco Forte Hotels) – the splendid residence in the city center. That evening everything will be prepared for dinner in friendly and warm surroundings.

Interesting fact: Marble brought from the Ruskeala quarry was used to decorating the Marble Palace and St. Isaac’s Cathedral in St. Petersburg, the triumphal columns of the imperial residences in Tsarskoe Selo and Gatchina, and also the central metro stations of St. Petersburg.

Day 5

Devote this day to see St. Petersburg and feel the rhythm of the ancient city that brings together Russian aristocratic culture and European civilization. But it is time to say goodbye. We will be glad to provide you with a comfortable transfer to the airport and make sure that you bring along positive memories of the days you have lived together with Porsche Travel Experience Russia!  

Interesting fact: The last Russian Empire Nikolay II said that he was not ready to spend so much money on this “risky hotel progect”. That’s why the new inverstors were needed. But they were not found in Russia but in the USA – the Astor brothers finally decided to invest money in the project. The hotel was named after these brothers – Astoria.
