A tour to Murmansk North Aurora is designed for those travelers who want to enjoy their vacation in a harsh, but at the same time beautiful winter region. Since November, a real winter has come in Murmansk with huge snowdrifts and minus temperatures. Ski lifts are opening in Kirovsk, riding deer and snowmobiles on the tundra, and the Sun does not appear because of the horizon. At this time of the dominance of the polar night, greenish-reddish flashes of aurora appear in the sky most often. Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin at one time called it Northern Aurora, and this name has completely taken root. Apparently, 300 years ago this phenomenon could be easily seen in St. Petersburg, but now you need to go to North Karelia, Murmansk or Arkhangelsk region. In addition to the Northern Lights, during this tour to Murmansk you will visit the local Sami people, where you can ride deers, go to the Arctic Ocean in the village of Teriberka (the film “Leviathan” was shot there), ride husky sled dogs and see the main Attractions of the city of Murmansk.
