An unforgettable snowmobile route that guarantees a breathtaking experience!

The expedition starts in the ancient Pomeranian village of Varzuga, famous for its wooden temples. Next, the landscapes of the central part of the Kola are waiting for you — hundreds of kilometers of forest tundra, huge peat bogs separate the original village of Krasnoshchelye from civilization.  

You can also explore the Lovozero Tundra, a mysterious mountain range that may have been the center of the ancient Hyperborean civilization. And the journey will end with the passage of the route in the largest mountain range of the peninsula — Khibiny.

The total length of the route is about 600 km on snowmobiles.

Tour organizer's comments

The total length of the route is about 600 km on snowmobiles. A balanced, harmonious and comprehensive route.  The difficulty level is average.  It is well suited for those who have already traveled with us and want to diversify their geography. But it is also good for those who have already tried their hand at snowmobile trips in other regions.
