Umba is a beautiful northern river which takes its source in Lake Oumbozero, inlaid in mountains. It passes through a good part of the Kola Peninsula. The water is pure, emerald. During this descent we cross several lakes (which will be passed motorized) different rapids powerful or extended until 7 km. We will see the unique character of the boreal nature, rocks, forests, clean water and the remains of ancient civilizations (petroglyphs). On the banks of Umba and in the forest you can see the dwarf birch. We will also discover the White Sea and its varied natural environment.

During some evenings, touristic banya (Russian sauna) will be organized.
