We will glimpse the northern lights at the end of the world, and nothing and nobody will distract us from this amazing phenomenon. We will get to one of the northernmost points of continental Russia, perceive the stunning beauty of the Arctic, ride snowmobiles in the snow-covered tundra, take hot steam baths, catch not only king crabs but also enjoy other delights of the Barents Sea and stay 3 days in an exclusive and comfortable hotel just beyond of the Arctic Circle, on the shores of the Arctic Ocean.
Departure from Moscow – February 21, 2020. Group of 10-15 people. Duration: 4 days.
On this day we will fly to Murmansk, walk around the city and visit the legendary icebreaker “Lenin”. In the evening, a guide will pick us up and we go on our first hunt for the Northern Lights. Along the way, he will tell us all about the Northern Lights: what is it and why does this natural spectacle happen? We hear both scientific facts and legends about one of the most striking views space has to offer.
Today, cosmic sensations await us. From Murmansk, we will get to the peninsula Rybachy. By car, we drive as far until the road’s end and then switch to snowmobiles. Here we will make a first acquaintance with the silent Tundra and the Barents Sea. We’ll race through vast plains, snow-covered forests, dormant rivers and lakes, cross the majestic Musta-Tunturi pass and catch sight of the lively sea. Since this is where the Gulf Stream flows, the water never freezes. In the evening, we’ll reach our cozy little houses, enjoy a delicious dinner, take a bath in the open outdoor pool and gaze into the starry sky. Maybe we’ll glimpse the Northern Lights again?
Today we reach the “end of the world” – Cape Nemetsky, which is one of the northernmost points of continental Russia. On snowmobiles, we pass the coast of the Arctic Ocean and absorb the energy of the north. We’ll see giant mighty waves breaking on the rocky shore of “Armageddon”, stunning cliffs, a stranded ship, and an abandoned military garrison. In the evening, we return to the base where we a hot bath and a delicious dinner await us.
On this day, we will get on a boat to catch king crabs and other inhabitants of the Barents Sea. In this bay, the water never freezes, so you can even fish here in winter. Our chef will prepare everything we catch to a delicious meal. After lunch, we leave, again as last time first by snowmobile, and then cars bring us directly to the airport.
We live in comfortable cabins. Accommodation for 2-3 persons. The cottages have a living room with a sofa and a fireplace and a kitchen, in addition, there is a terrace with a fantastic view of the sea and free WI-Fi.
We’ll be accompanied by a professional guide with many years of experience, on the entire route from Titovka station and back to it. Our route is easy, so it does not require any previous experience in driving a snowmobile. Any driver’s license is sufficient.
Three meals a day are included in the program’s cost. We will try different specialties of local cuisine and delicacies from the sea.
