Karelian Village Nilmoguba

According to the specified conditions, Nilmoguba is not different from other Karelian villages of the same latitude.

The village stands at the mouth of the Nilmo River, on the White Sea, on the Polar Circle. The nearest railway station is called “Polar Circle”. Waist-high snowdrifts and northern lights can be seen here in winter, while summer is known for white nights. Snow melts only in May, then vacationers come and return to the city when it gets cold.

The residents of Nilmoguba are real northerners, straightforward and open. They are hospitable and willing to communicate, they will invite you into their houses and lodge at a small fee. The village is inhabited not only by local natives, but also by the former inhabitants of Moscow and St. Petersburg who had moved to the quiet clean north.

One of the houses is occupied by the community of “Energets” - informal persons with their own philosophy of life, they are quiet and rather peaceful. There is a culinary sight: you can buy cloudberry jam in Nilmoguba. It is impossible to describe its taste, you’d better try it out yourself. Despite all these northern joys, the village would remain one of a kind, but for one “but”. The diving centre “Polar Circle” opened in Nilmoguba several years ago. And it’s only introduction to the story. The story itself is the dolphinarium working in Nilmoguba in the open air.

The local diving centre can receive and accommodate up to 25 people, providing services of three dozen White Sea dive sites. The centre has a PADI certificate (certificate of Professional Association of Diving Instructors, one of the largest international certifying associations), so the safety of divers is taken seriously here. No one will let you dive without training (a minimum level for summer diving - OWD PADI or similar). You can, however, try the so-called intro dive - an introductory dive with a safety rope and under the supervision of an instructor. An intro dive will cost 3.5-4.5 thousand roubles (depending on the season).

The price includes equipment rental and detailed instructions. Those who want to dive independently should take a course and receive a certificate right here in the “Polar Circle”. Even experienced divers will have to obtain a certificate “Dry Suit” for winter dives. A “Dry” course will cost 8,000 roubles, and learning from scratch - 21,000 roubles.

“Polar Circle” regularly organizes expeditions to shipwrecks and safari of the similar kind. In addition, the tourist centre organizes annual children’s camps. These go without scuba diving and are conventional, educational camps. Each session has its topic, but somehow all children are familiarized with the nature of the White Sea. Another live attraction of the diving centre is tame polar white whales.
