The Kola Peninsula is the harsh beauty of the Arctic Ocean, the amazing nature of Russian Lapland, a meeting with the history and culture of the "reindeer people", ancient places of power, reindeers and fluffy affectionate Huskies.

The mystical attraction of Teriberka…The charm of Monchetundra with their multi-colored mosses covered plateau and age-old forests at the foot… The crystal-clear waters of Lake Imandra with many islands and picturesque bays… 

And also — local hospitality, national cuisine, the magic of the polar day. And the endless northern expanses that accept only the strong and brave.
