Tour of the Old Believers in Piirissaar

Tour of the Old Believers in Piirissaar


The main attractions of Piirissaar are the Old Believers' cemeteries and villages, as well as a narrow channel dug through the island, where you can ride a boat while enjoying the island's beautiful nature.

The main activities of this area are fishing and onion cultivation, which we will also introduce during our journey.

The day starts at Laaksaare Harbour, from where the passenger ship Koidula will depart. Upon arrival on the island, we will start with an excursion, during which we will explore the island's village life, culture, and traditions, and visit a local museum where you can drink tea from a samovar with the famous Piirissaar sugar. At the end of the tour, we will enjoy lunch prepared from local raw materials.
