Most foreign tourists visit Vytegra during cruises between St Petersburg and Moscow. The town’s museums are a short walk from the passenger quay. Special excursions can be arranged with the museum administration if prior notice is provided.
Vytegra can be reached by road from St Petersburg, via Svir’stroi and Lodeinoe Pole (caution, parts of the road are unpaved and can present challenges for motorists unfamiliar with Russian driving conditions; allow a day for the journey) and from Moscow via Vologda.
