Transfer to Teriberka village, 130 km, 3 hours drive. (Northern Lights possibility: average) to the shores of the Arctic Ocean. It is the only place in Russia where you can reach the northern ocean by road.
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” have started to attract more and more visitors.
Teriberka, being now the most popular village in Russia, sets the purest sample of cognitive dissonance: numerous visitors from Moscow and St Petersburg, travelling by expensive Land Cruises and other luxury vans, rising number of international travellers…coming to the semi-abandoned village with the old collapsing houses and the average salary of 150 USD per month.
What else to do and see at Teriberka?
Old wooden ships cemetery, beautiful sand beaches, abandoned historical part of the village, waterfall, battery of coastal defense, observation posts and strengthenings' of WWII. Please note, that due to bad road conditions and polar night, we depart at 4 PM. For custom overnight stays, please inquire.
Return to our hotel in Murmansk
For custom tours or small groups travelling together, we advise staying in one of the comfy and cozy lodges in the tundra. Fully serviced.
Here in Teriberka, you will find yourself in the lost world, on the shores of the Arctic Ocean. We use snowmobiles to reach such highlights as the cemetery of abandoned ships and other attractions. 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).
