Variety of Nature

Perhaps, it isn’t possible to find such a variety of natural conditions anywhere. The proximity of the tundra, forest-tundra and forest zone makes it possible to get acquainted with the flora and fauna of two or three natural zones during one trip. You can go hiking in the mountain areas and across vast plains, as well as reach the coast of the most northerly ocean, visit the utmost point of the earth, lay a ski track through snow-covered passes in winter, and go kayaking through turbulent rapids in summer season.

White Nights

The first meeting with the polar region, familiarity with its nature, the expanses of the tundra and forest thickets, white nights and aurorae, fast rivers with rapids, countless lakes, the coast of the Arctic oce- an - all these give a lot of impressions to a person who got here. As a rule, the majority of tourists want to visit the Kola Peninsula once again. Many people do not know and do not imagine how beautiful the coast of the Arctic Ocean is and how fascinating the ocean itself is. And the colors of the tundra are mystically beautiful!
