    CHECK OUT WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT TRAVELLING WITH US

    Roberto, Italy: Great Northern Light experience in Murmansk and Kola peninsula.

    Excellent experience in Murmansk and Kola peninsula for 5 days and 4 nights. We managed to see the Northers Light in 2 different nights, all the beauty of the region and all the possible experience (Husky, Reindeer, snow mobile, ice fishing, Teriberka, banya, etc..). A wonderful experience that I suggest to everybody.

    Irina, our consultant from Discovery Russia, was very helpful, in organizing the tour in line with our needs and requests. The on-site guide was very professional and always available providing us all the information and details.

    In 4 nights we spent night in 3 hotels but the logistic was well organized. Great experience.
