Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Teriberka. The Hunt for the Northern Lights

    We will meet you at the airport, get acquainted and immediately go to the village of Teriberka.

    The recommended flight from Moscow is FV 6373 arrival at 09:40, from St. Petersburg flight FV6341 arrival at 10:25. If you arrive by train, we will pick you up from Murmansk railway Station at 10:00.

    The journey time will be about 2.5 hours, but we are sure that the road will not tire you. 

    The winter tundra is beautiful with its vast expanses!

    In Teriberka we will visit the Cemetery of ships of the last century, take a ride in a sleigh behind a snowmobile to the Battery Waterfall, walk along the beach "Dragon Eggs", have lunch at one of the restaurants in Teriberka, located on the shore of Teriberka Bay (lunch is not included in the price). 

    Our guide will gladly tell you the history of this place, its features, and the climatic changes in the landscape.

    After saying goodbye to Teriberka, we will set off on our way back to Murmansk, check into the Meridian Hotel, located in the very center of Murmansk (on the dates of January 3-5, 2024 — the Park Inn Hotel).

    After that, dinner is planned at the hotel (not included in the price). 

    Then there will be time to walk around the main square of Murmansk — the Five Corners, or relax.

    At approximately 21:00, a guide will pick you up to go hunting for the northern lights. 

    In the vicinity of Murmansk, depending on the clouds and the forecast for the solar wind, we will look for a convenient place to observe it. 

    The hunt lasts, as a rule, 2-4 hours. 

    Then we return to the hotel.
