Almost entirely above the Arctic Circle, jutting out between the White and Barents Seas, the Kola Peninsula
is a place where only the hardiest survive. Travel to a land dominated by taiga forest in the south and tundra in the north, with mountain ranges, crystal clear lakes and rivers and rugged coastline in between. Kola’s vast grasslands are subject to visiting grazing reindeer in their thousands over the summer months. Our tours to the Kola Peninsula will introduce you to the guardians of this beautiful land, the indigenous Saami
, or Sami, who also inhabit northern Scandinavia. A semi-nomadic people with their own language and customs, the Sami traverse the tundra on husky-drawn sleds and depend on reindeer herding for their livelihood.
Why travel to Kola Peninsula:
- Hunt for the breathtakingly beautiful Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) in Murmansk, Kola Peninsula - a place so close to the Arctic Circle that it has become one of the world’s premier destinations to see this magnificent natural phenomenon
- Get your adrenaline racing with one of the many exciting winter adventure activities and experiences on offer, such as going on a thrilling snowmobile safari along the Khibiny Mountains, riding a husky sled through the snow-capped taiga or lassoing reindeers at a traditional Saami campsite
