Experiences you'll have

Active holidays in the Kola Peninsula

You'll stay on the shores of the scenic Lake Lovozero overlooking the Lovozero Tundras. You'll see the primordial nature of the Russian Lapland and watch the Northern Lights, you'll ride a snowmobile and a reindeer-pulled sleigh. You'll fish burbot, go to the sacred Lake Seidozero, relax in a wood-fired sauna and try the national Sami cuisine. You'll meet wild animals: partridge, capercaillie, foxes, hares, and deer.

On the very last day, you'll snowmobile to one of the peaks of the Lovozero Tundras, the 950-meter Mount Mannepakh.

The route is as follows: Kirovsk to the Umbozero Pass to Lake Umbozero to Lake Lovozero to Lake Seidozero to Mount Mannepakh and then back to Kirovsk.

Itinerary

The journey begins in Apatity or Kirovsk, where you have to get on your own by train or by plane.

Day 1 Snowmobiling to the lakes

You'll meet us in Apatity and ride the minibus to the snowmobile camp in Kirovsk (takes half an hour). We'll stop en route at a cafe to have a breakfast.

 

Then you'll be provided gear and trained to operate a snowmobile. Then you go on this route: Kirovsk to the Umbozero Pass to Lake Umbozero to Lake Lovozero. The distance of this route is about 130 kilometers.

Day 2 Reindeer sleigh rides

You'll ride a snowmobile to Lake Seidozero. Then you'll visit a small private reindeer farm to take pictures of reindeer and ride a reindeer-pulled sleigh. On this day, you'll travel 60 to 65 kilometers by snowmobile.

 

After you come back to the guest house, feel free to unwind and relax in the wood-fired sauna with a dip in the snow.

Day 3 The realms of the Khibiny Mountains

In the morning, you'll ride a snowmobile toward the Khibiny Mountains. The return route to Kirovsk is different from that of Day One. If possible, you'll climb one of the peaks of the Lovozero Tundras, the 950-meter Mount Mannepakh overlooking Lake Umbozero and the Khibiny Mountians; in the Khibiny Mountains, you'll cross the Partomchorr Pass rather than the Umbozero Pass.


On this day, you'll ride about 150 kilometers by snowmobile. Aftewards you come back to Kirovsk and go to the airport or the railway station.
