Estonia to Finland via Russia

Post by TravelToy » Mon Feb 12, 2018 11:00 pm

I'm thinking of taking the Estonian TET right up to the North-East, then go into Russia, visit St. Petersburg and then go into Finland to continue on the Finnish TET direction North Cape.

Looking for information on Russian border crossing. Is it feasible, what documents would I need and how much time would it take just to cross the border ?

Kind regards,
Chris.

Hi Chris, first thing first check the price and process of obtaining the visa to Russia, borders in Saint Petersburg area are quiet busy and sometimes can talk more than few hours (depends widely on mood of border control officers)

Thanks for the tip Oleksii.
Never thought a visum for Russia was so expensive :-((
I'll change my plans then and go from Tallinn to Helsinki by ferry.

Expensive but definitely worth it, shore walks there are just fantastic: https://petersburg.expert/blog/things-t ... rg-russia/
Never took the Finnish TET though, just was at St. Petersburg once and it was great.
