Kayaking on the Umbozer, trekking to the Khibiny and Lovozero tundra

This hike is a combined one. We will not only kayak along the beautiful lake Umbozero, but also make hiking trips to the Khibiny and Lovozero tundra. The places where the hike takes place are wild and it is rare to meet fishermen or tourists here. 

The hike takes place on single and double sea kayaks and is reported to the Ministry of Emergency Situations. It is also planned to apply for a hike in the Route Qualification Commission of the Sports Tourism Federation of the Murmansk region.
