There are a few eco resorts/lodges one hour drive from Murmansk and we recommend tundra stay for the best experience. We love Tuloma river lodges hidden deep in tundra - yet within comfortable drive distance from the city and airport.
The resort has a few houses to accommodate solo travelers, couples, families or friends travelling together. Rooms vary from standard to deluxe cottages. Talk to your Discovery Russia travel expert for the best solution for your party. Depending on your flights schedule, we might have a time for cross-country skiing, vatrushkas, tundra walks in a special boots and other winter activities.
After Russian Banya and dinner prepare for your Northern Lights Hunt tonight (or the other night if the forecasts hints on better chances tomorrow). Our ground team is constantly monitoring the forecast. We travel to tundra to the locations where Aurora is best seen. We will take you far away from the artificial lighting to the places most known for the better Aurora viewing. You will be back to the lodge around 2 AM. Sometimes we use hover boat to sail on a frozen river Tuloma.
