Kandalaksha travel agencies

By Marina Bevka
Travel agent

Our travel agencies neither organize tours for individual foreign travellers nor can be very helpful in booking a hotel. [Thanks, Marina, that’s a great way to promote Kandalaksha. We know it but the whole world does not need to be told what a loser town it is.] There work 1.5 managers busy with their work. What do they exactly do? Sell local citizens package tours to other countries, write out green cards, and arrange visas to Finland and Norway for the Kandalaksha residents.

Below is a list of active agencies. You can try contacting them but they are not likely to respond and even less so to help you.

[Marina – You could have mentioned my humble services, eh? I tend to respond, and can be of assistance to Russian visa seekers, to those needed guide/driver/translator/fixer/etc. here. Read up on marketing fundamentals please.]
