September 27, 2018 15:37


The Kola Peninsula (Murmansk Region) has long possessed a stable reputation of an interesting tourist area. The map of the peninsula has virtually no blank spaces. Travelers cross the peninsula in all directions, the routes of many groups have passed the areas that were previously considered inaccessible.

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! 


As you go hiking, you will see a lot of seitas, dozens of the purest lakes, streams, you can catch bulltrout, char, grayling, see the herds of deer, unforgettable sunsets, besides, if your hike takes place is in June or July, then you will see the sun up in the sky round the clock, not going beyond the horizon, with your own eyes!

Lake Seydozero

The heart of the Kola Peninsula includes the sacred Lake Seydozero, called Seydyavr in Saami language, which means “the lake of mountain spirits”. It is located in the heart of the Kola Peninsula, in the area traditionally known as Russian Lapland. Seydozero is surrounded by mountains on three sides.
