Itinerary

  • Day 1 - The road to Teriberka. Graveyard of ships, northern swing, Old Teriberka

    Meeting place and time of the group: 09:00 at the Five Corners Square, in the parking lot opposite the Meridian Hotel.

    After meeting with all the members of the group, we will immediately hit the road. After driving through the vast expanses of the tundra for about 3 hours, we will find ourselves on the coast of the Barents Sea.

    Upon arrival, we will leave our things at the base and drive to the village of Staraya Teriberka. It was here that the film "Leviathan" was shot. The salty sea air and silence will be your constant companions during your walk, and you will definitely feel the amazing magic of this place.

    Today we offer you to have lunch at a restaurant on the beach. Nearby, on the sandy beach, there is a huge swing, which offers a beautiful view of the endless ocean.

    We will walk back to the base (5 km), along the way we will see the famous Cemetery of ships. This place is a real paradise for romantics, photographers and all those who are not indifferent to the harsh beauty of the northern seas.

    Upon returning to the base, we will have dinner and rest, set the table and celebrate our New Year's acquaintance

    Perhaps today, on our very first northern night, we will be lucky to see the Aurora borealis!
