From our recent trip to Finland. This sign was found hidden in the bushes at the gas station in Alakurtti.
“We are waiting for you in the village of Alakurtti, ulitsa N. Naberezhnaya 50, tel. 8 911 314 4155, 8 911 336 3863.”
A warning based on the story of one of our guests: Although Alakurtti is NOT closed to foreigners the local police will monitor you closely and may burst in in the middle of night to check your documents. Alakurtti remains the last point before the Finnish border where you can find accommodation, and since the border crossing closes at 9pm it is wise to make a note of Alakurtti accommodation.
