Ideas to extend your stay in the Arctic. Take an optional tour to visit super Deep Well - 3 (SDW-3) - full day tour while it's too light to see the Aurora. The Kola Superdeep Borehole is the result of a scientific drilling project of the Soviet Union in the Pechengsky District, near the Russian border with Norway, on the Kola Peninsula. The project attempted to drill as deep as possible into the Earth's crust. Here you will find the most incredible stories about the work of SDW-3 about voices from the depths that many have heard. The locals say that this is nothing but the "moans of the Earth," or even from the Underworld. The depth of the well is 12,262 m. They wanted to drill it up to 15 thousand meters!

Today the territory where the SDW-3 stood is a sad sight - ruins and ruins, among which it is difficult to find the well itself. However, with our guide, who knows all the secrets of the SDW-3, as a former employee of SD-3 we will not miss it out. Return to the lodge by dinner - and another few hours of northern light hunt.

Alternatively, you may stay in the lodge and enjoy your Arctic experience with skiing, walking, hiking, and delicious local meals. Nearby ancient Kildinsky Lake is a great place for ice fishing. Hotel staff will take you to the lake by snowmobile, help drill the hole and teach you how to use special fishing rods for ice fishing.
