I´d like you to advise me if this itinerary is affordable:
Riga 2 days--train Pskov
Pskov 1 day--train Velilkiy Novgorod (is there a train between these cities, i do not find it in
Velikiy Novgorod 2 days- train SP
SP area 5 days--train Petrozavodsk
Petrozavodsk-Kizhi 2 days--train Kem
Kem-Solovetsky 3-4 days--Train Petrozavodsk
Petrozavodsk-Sortapala-Valaam 2-3 days
Sortapala-Vyborg 2 days
Vyborg ferry to Tallinn??
Tallinn 2 days and come back to Riga.
Total: 24 days

Do you think these destinations worth while or it could be a very stressant trip? I intend to take night trains and lodge in particular houses, and use buses if there is not communication by train. I´d like anyway to arrive at Solovetsky by I pretend coming back to Baltic area without stopping again in SP. Do you know well ferries between Russia and Esthonia and transportation in Northern Ladoga area? Which places would you write in your visa?

Sorry for so many questions

Thanks it advance, especially to Ruth, Firehazard and another kind experts, without your help this would be a total enigma :)
