Amongst many wonders in nature there is one that truly stands apart: Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights. The colours, the scale, the mightiness, the severe yet fragile beauty of this sheer spectacle next to the Arctic Circle. Nothing compares to it on Earth. The Kola Peninsula is the best place in Russia with the highest chances to view the Northern Lights in action. We customize tours on request.

Kola Peninsula is the top destination in Russia for Aurora Borealis viewing, there are very high chances to observe it directly at the eco lodge you stay in. However we recommend to spend at least 3 nights here to maximize the chances of Aurora Borealis viewing, and due to remoteness of the location. NOTE: clear skies and solar activity are the critical conditions to watch Aurora Borealis, best timing is from 8:00 pm till 2:00 am. What to expect on this trip? Average air temperature -9 ° C to + 5 ° C // Air humidity 85% // Wind speed 8 m/s
Daniel, USA: AMAZING TRIPRussia was a very interesting country to explore! Having visited over 40 countries in 15 years, I have to confess I’ve come totally unprepared and discovered a universe so worth visiting. Colors, tastes, smells, so much history & art, and people are so warmhearted. I was totally smitten with the country and pleased by our travel arrangements. Our guide, Vadim, was very friendly and spoke good English. He was sharing interesting information about the country, its history, culture, modern life, gossips, politics etc. Our hotels were are OK. Great trip, good memories!
