Zelenoborsky accommodation

+7 926 270 8501, Boris, with three guest houses. That’s the only info our search genius Alexandra was able to dig up about the town of Zelenoborsky, ~60km south from Kandalaksha, in response to a request from a Finnish cyclist planning such a trip. No e-mail, no site, just telephone number..

..The owner, it turns out, has the Moscow State University White Sea Biological Station in his background, and offers, among other services, birdwatching. Details coming up.

  2. Here is a piece of feedback on this accommodation option from Timo Laine, the cyclist for whom I found the offer:

    The accommodation in Zelenoborsky was in fact located in Travyanaya Guba, about 10 km to the southwest from the St Petersburg–Murmansk Road. It’s a big and nice villa on the shore of Kovdozero. It can house a lot of people and there actually were other people staying there, but they happened to spend that night somewhere else. Boris had totally forgotten that I was coming. He expects visitors to contact him again a few days before arrival, even if you have already agreed on everything. I had made my reservation a month before and told him I won’t contact again before the day of arrival, as I will be on the road. Boris acknowledged his mistake and apologised several times for not having cleaned the place for me. He let me stay for free, so I have absolutely no hard feelings. The villa is a bit hard to find, but I was guided by telephone.
