Day 2: Murmansk
Murmansk is the largest city in the world north of the Arctic Circle. The morning city tour acquaints us with the fascinating history of the city and with places related to the heroic struggle of the city during the 2nd World War including the Alyosha Monument dedicated to the Defenders of the Subarctic Region. After that we proceed to the Monument dedicated to the Memory of the Sailors who died in peacetime and we see the fragment of the booth of the Kursk atomic submarine that dramatically sank in 2001. Lunch at a local city restaurant. In the afternoon we continue with a visit to the Lenin Icebreaker Museum, an icon of the history of navigation, and with a visit to the Regional History Museum of Murmansk, the oldest museum in the region, founded in 1926 and dedicated to the history and culture of the whole Murmansk region. In the evening we are invited to an Aurora Hunting Tour and if we are lucky we are dazzled by the Northern Lights. (B,L,D)

Day 3: Murmansk – Teriberka – Murmansk
In the morning we set off for the village of Teriberka, the only place in Russia on the shores of the Arctic Ocean, which can be reached by road. The road to Teriberka offers breathtaking views of the endless white tundra and wild nature. At arrival in Teriberka we feel like we are at the edge of the Earth. The seashore is fascinating and leaves no one indifferent! In Teriberka we learn about the village life which gained popularity after the premiere of the Russian film “Leviathan” which was nominated for the Oscar Awards and we enjoy a local lunch. After lunch we embark a sleigh ride. The sleighs are pulled by snowmobiles and the ride takes us towards a beautiful waterfall that empties into the Arctic Ocean. In the afternoon we drive through the snow clad wilderness back to Murmansk. (B,L,D)
 
Day 4: Murmansk – Lovozero – Murmansk
In the morning we depart to a husky park. During the excursion we are going to learn the incredible history of the Siberian husky. We are able to communicate with these affectionate dogs and we also see the beautiful reindeers. After that we rejoice on an exciting trip through the winter forest on a sleigh pulled by dogs. After lunch at a local restaurant we continue with a visit to the ethnic village. We learn about the traditional life of the people of the north, play outdoors games, feed the reindeers and ride in the Saami sled before returning to Murmansk. (B,L,D)
