November - March
St. Petersburg - Murmansk - Teriberka - Lovozero - Murmansk
Depart for the Kola peninsula! A journey for adventurers in quest of immersive experiences.
"Kola Peninsula", if you have already heard of it, may refer to a cold snowy place, with long polar nights where locals live a harsh life in extreme climate conditions. What people don't usually know, is everything else which makes this region unique and extraordinary. Murmansk, the polar capital and its fleet of nuclear ice-breakers, dog sledding in the infinite toundra, meetings with the Saami people, a local population herding reindeers, and the charm of Teriberka, a small fishermen village on the shore of the Arctic Ocean. Of course, last but not least ... the legendary northern lights rewarding brave adventurers who dared to enter this mysterious world.
