Bright North - 5 days tour in Northern Russia

A winter activity program in the most northern corner of Russia - Kola Peninsula. The piece of land outside the polar circle attracts more and more adventure seekers.

The incredible  non-freezing Barents Sea flows into the Arctic Ocean, endless tundra and majestic cliffs inspire unforgettable feelings in guests of Teriberka, where the famous movie "The Leviathan" was shot. Also,if we get lucky, and it's possible because miracles happen in Christmas time, we will see the Northern Lights!

We will visit the legendary atomic icebreaker "Lenin" (the first vessel with a nuclear power generator in the world) in the hero city of Murmansk. Than will also stop by the memorial complex "Alyosha" providing a great view of the Kola bay. Then we will see the most northern oceanarium in Europe, where arctic seals live and perform.

In the ethnic village, we will be introduced to the Saami lifestyle: to rise of the Saami flag, to have a lunch in a Saami traditional home with typical dishes, to have a tour around the village, to play traditional Saami games, meeting with animals, feeding reindeer from hands, taking photos with them etc.

In Kirovsk we will go up to the mountain top of 1100 m height to the clouds by a cable-car. And how amazing the snow village is! An incredible piece of art made of snow and ice, you will be under impression for a long time after visiting it!

In our tour loads of emotions and positivity are guaranteed for a long time! Feel the real northern winter…
