Snow Fun "Aurora Winter Week"
 (6 days)

 

Have you ever been above the Polar Circle in winter and in the capital of the Russian North region - Murmansk? It is a major port-city that currently serves as a base for 15 fleets – including merchant, fishing, icebreaking and research fleets. Of course, a city-tour and visits to several interesting museums will be part of your visit to the World’s biggest city the North above the Polar Circle.

But we offer you to start your holiday from taking a part in some northern activities like cross-country skiing, alpine skiing, trying out a snowmobile and having snow fun. For these possibilities we go to the town of Kirovsk which is located in a valley of the Vudjavr lake and surrounded by the Khibiny Mountains. It is a beautiful northern city on the Kola Peninsula and a major mountain–skiing centre in the Northwest of Russia.

Your Aurora Winter Fun is based on hotel and guesthouse accommodation. The program is full board.
