Have you ever dreamed of visiting the Arctic? To see the Northern Lights, the vastness of the tundra, to feel the power of the Arctic Ocean at the far end of Russia? To try your hand at harnessing reindeer and sled dogs? To meet the people of the north, the Saami, to discover its culture and taste its cuisine? Driving the snowmobile in the polar night or seeing the snow village? Did you think it was inaccessible, very expensive, or just for overtrained and over-equipped?
Well no ! With our trip "In Search of the Northern Lights" the dream of discovering the Arctic becomes reality. This program is the result of our presence for several years in the Kola Peninsula and as we believe, is a perfect mix to discover the Arctic.
This trip in the Kola Peninsula is suitable for families with children over 5 years old and does not represent any physical difficulty.
In winter 2020 - 2021 the trip will be guided by Pavel Ageychenko, the founder of BaikalNature, who will pass on to you his virus of the passion for the great outdoors of Russia!
During this trip to the Russian Arctic you will visit Murmansk, the largest city in the world located beyond the Arctic Circle. You will go all the way to the north, along the Barents Sea, to the village of Tériberka to realize all the beauty and grandeur of the North. You will take a snowmobile ride on the great mountain range of Khibiny, you will visit a snow village made up of labyrinths and ice sculptures; and you will take an outing in the snow-covered forest in sleds drawn by dogs and reindeer. In addition, you will get to know the traditions and rites of the ancient Sami tribes and, of course, taste their local cuisine.
Here, in the middle of the Kola Peninsula, you will witness one of the most beautiful and mysterious natural phenomena: the aurora borealis. It is not possible to book nice weather or clear skies, but this trip in the middle of the polar night is perfectly suited to the search for the Aurora Borealis!
Do not miss the opportunity to get to know the world of the Arctic, its culture and its endless white expanses!
IMPORTANT: the departure of 01/28/2021 will be accompanied, in addition to Pavel Ageychenko, by Viktor Balaguer, the professional photographer who will be able to give you master classes and tips on polar nature photography. He will also share with you his photos taken during our stay together. Visit his instagram account to learn more about his talent: https://www.instagram.com/viktor_balaguer/
