Development of wilderness tourism service cooperation in the Republic of Karelia
Funded by Interreg II Karelia 1996-1999

Objective of the project

The objective of the project was to enhance the cooperation between Finnish and Russian Karelian tourism companies, especially in the field of fishing, hunting and snowmobiling. These services have been converted to high-quality tour packages, but additional equipment, vehicles and more marketing related to wilderness tourism are needed to further improve the efficiency of operations. The project was planned to be carried out jointly with travel companies of the Republic of Karelia.
