Trip reference number: ITN_RUS_020
Trip Operator: Regent Holidays
Though the snowy wildernesses of Lapland are widely famed for the northern lights, stealing the limelight each winter, the aurora borealis also appears regularly, and just as intensely, over the northern Murmansk region of Russia.
Murmansk is located above the Arctic Circle, close the Russian border with Norway and Finland. Every night between December and March there are good opportunities to go out and hunt for the northern lights (weather permitting).
On this new group tour we don’t just include aurora hunting, board the world’s first nuclear ice-breaker, admire beautiful ice and snow carvings at the Snow Village in Kirovsk, learn about the life of the indigenous Sami people and enjoy the thrill of a husky sled ride.
We have also included all meals on this group tour, just in case, your Russian menu reading isn’t up to scratch!
