Roberto, expat in Russia: GREAT NORTHERN LIGHT EXPERIENCE IN MURMANSK AND KOLA PENINSULAExcellent 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.

➤Insulating clothing (fleece, wool, down or synthetic insulator like Primaloft or similar);
➤Hard-shell clothing (wind and waterproof) to protect you from the wind and snow;
➤Extra insulating clothing (down jacket with hood) for Aurora hunting. You will stay outside with temperatures from -5 to -37 a lot of time.
