Suitable for inclusion in incentive programs, a range of tours and excursions have been created by the specialists at the "Petersburg-Tour". Numerous palaces offer an ideal location for elegant parties with champagne cocktails, live music, barbecues, delicious dessert buffets, and tea and coffee. Boat trips are popular in summer during the White Nights season, featuring cocktails on the Neva or lunch on Lake Ladoga. Perhaps a barbecue at a lake by the forest, with a swim in cool clear waters to top off the evening? Or even a lively beach party on the Finnish Gulf coast?
Snow shows the beauty of St. Petersburg to its full advantage, and winter in St. Petersburg is undoubtedly the most stunning season. An incentive program tour might begin with a visit to the country cottage of Empress Alexandra, with champagne and a concert in one of the cottage’s carefully preserved salons. The more intrepid may prefer ice fishing on the Gulf of Finland, an unforgettable experience. The evening is spent in an authentic country dacha deep in the forest. Warmed by a wood stove and traditional Russian food, with folk songs and dances later, you can listen to the tales of Pushkin as night closes in.
