 A new tour for those who wish to see the Northern Lights has been developed for the coming winter in Arkhangelsk Oblast by the requests from Thailand and Brazil.

      “A completely new program has been developed based on the requests of our partners from Thailand and Brazil, but we will offer it to everyone who wishes. The emphasis is put on the specific kind of accommodation, so that the guests could see the northern lights” - the General Director of “Northern Tourism Company” Tatiana Motovicheva told. The tour demonstrates the northern exotic, having educational nature at the same time.

      Russian North is remarkable for its majestic scenery and unique architecture. The ancient Archangelsk played the leading role in the history of Russian architecture. Nowadays tourists can see the monuments that remind of the ancient epoch.

      Due to its strategic location, the region has a rather grim history since for quite a long time the region was home to many prison and exile camps. The main attraction of the region is however the untamed northern wilderness, the open museum at Malye Korely or the Solovetskye Islands. The Solovetskye Islands (Solovki) have always been used for exile and retreat: here was one of the most famous monasteries of the Russian Empire, a tsarist–era penal colony and a Soviet prison camp. It is still a place one can hardly live in. For travelers unphased by remote locations and complications in getting there, the islands offer unparalleled beauty, with frequent reminders of their troubled history. The region is known for its wooden architecture similar to that of fabulous Kizhi and pleasant scenery around the natural reserve. Malye Korely, a small town 25 km east of Archangelsk, houses a prominent collection of the 19th century wooden buildings, windmills and watermills, bell towers and wooden churches, brought here from various places throughout the Archangelsk Region.

      Especially wonderful are summer white nights-since the end of May till the end of June, the only time of the year when the sun never goes down. In winter you may observe marvelous soft white snows and northern lights. There are about 25 thousand lakes, including salt, mineral sources, that allowed to create famous resorts Solonicha and Solvychegodsk in the Archangelsk Region. The Archangelsk Region is attractive for foreigners because of its history, art, traditions and business.

      Arkhangelsk Region is located in northern European Russia. The region covers an area of 587,400 square kilometers and comprises the territory of Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, 20 administrative regions and 14 towns. The administrative center of the Region is Archangelsk.

      Arkhangelsk Region borders with Kirov and Vologda Region, Republics of Karelia and Komi, and is washed by three Arctic seas: the White, the Barents and the Kara Seas. The coastline stretches up to 3000 km. Thanks to its huge territory Archangelsk Region comprises different climatic zones, with arctic and sub-arctic climate represented on the north-eastern territories and with temperate climate prevailing in the center and on the south of the region. Winters are usually long and cold with strong winds and summers are moderate-warm. Average temperatures range from -9° for January to 17° for July. Arkhangelsk Region is often called a “land of the white nights”. From the middle of May till the end of July days are very long and in the southern lands of the region nights resemble rather dusks. In the winter it is just vice versa: days last for some 5 hours and for the rest of the time it is dark. 37% of the territory is covered with forest, very often coniferous, 19% of the Region’s area is represented by islands (including archipelagos of Franz Josef Land and New land). Arkhangelsk Region is proud of numerous rivers. The largest among them are the Northern Dvina, the Pechora, the Onega, and the Mezen’ Rivers. The region is also rich with natural resources such as bauxite, oil, and gas. Besides, here a prominent center of timber industry is situated, which plays an important role in the region’s economy.
