Murmansk Oblast

Murmansk Oblast lies above the Arctic Circle, where the Barents Sea and the White Sea lap its coastline. The hilly territory, covered with tundra forests in the north and taiga in the south, is crisscrossed with rivers, rivulets, and canals connecting the region's many lakes. The area provides opportunities for diverse types of tourism. Naturalists will enjoy spotting polar wildlife, such as reindeer, moose, foxes, ermines, snowy owls, and, if you're lucky, brown bear, the master of the taiga. Adventure seekers will find the rivers full of rapids perfect for rafting and kayaking. Travelers searching for mysteries should visit the sacred place of Saami, the region's indigenous people. Known as "the Kola North Pearl," this lake surrounded by green and grey rocks is linked to another lake by a path of stone plates. If you're interested in the history of the region, you can learn about ancient customs and traditions in museums and at folk festivals.
