Before your evening flights, take a tour of your choice. Murmansk is the largest city in the world north of the Arctic Circle. Founded in 1915 as a supply port in World War I, it was a base for the British, French, and American expeditionary forces against the Bolsheviks in 1918. We shall visit either the Naval Museum or the Historical Museum.

After lunch, visit museum of ice-breaker “Lenin”, the first nuclear ice-breaker in the world! Murmansk played an important role as a Russian trade link with the Allies during the Second World War II. Various supplies were brought to the city with the help of the Arctic convoys. Murmansk was heavily damaged during the war. It was restored in the beginning of the 1950ies. We will transfer you to the airport for your evening departure flight.

Or, spend this day to travel to the shore of the Arctic Ocean to a famous Teriberka village (130 km, 3 hours drive). Teriberka is one of the oldest settlements at Kola peninsula, founded in XVIth century as a fishermen village at the shores of cold Barents sea. Fascinating Arctic nature is the biggest treasure, though there is a decent set of historical and cultural highlights to visit. Apart from arctic flora and fauna and splendid northern landscaped, recent appearance in famous Russian movie “Leviathan” has started to attract more and more visitors. Here you will find yourself in the lost world, on the shores of the Arctic Ocean. We use snowmobiles to reach such local highlights as the cemetery of abandoned ships. However, life goes on and local cafes are now serving decent meals to international travellers. You can taste the crab, sea scallops, sea urchins, and seasonal catch of the day (weather permitting).
