1-day cross-country skiing tour in Monchegorsk

The prime season for cross-country skiing is March and April. This is an excellent time to come over for a cross-country skiing adventure over frozen lakes and via forest in the Northern wilderness. Snow and sunshine, frost and blue sky – the Spring is coming to Kola Peninsula!

If you like to experience the polar night and you are not afraid of a little cold, then skiing in December, January or February is also possible but for a shorter amount of hours per day.

This tour is suitable for beginners and experienced skiers. For those who want to try out cross-country skies, the guide instructs you the basics of cross-country skiing on the lighted tracks of Monchegorsk. After good progress we continue to the lake and forests.
Distance of skiing: approx. 20 km (or lesser or more, depending on experience).

Explore the Winter World of Kola Peninsula from half of December up to May!

Monchegorsk has also prepared free style skiing tracks for experienced cross-country skiers for training.
