PRIVATE TOUR

Murmansk is the largest port, the base of the icebreaking fleet of Russia and the “gateway of the Arctic”. This unique city, despite the small number of historical monuments, is very beautiful and original. The main attractions here are associated with nature, numerous war memorials and, of course, the Northern lights.

During this short tour, you will see the main attractions of this severe and cold region. In one of the evenings of the tour, we will go Northern Lights Hunting and try to see one of the most beautiful natural phenomenon.

Since seeing of Aurora Borealis highly depends on the weather, we do not give our guests a 100% guarantee on its appearance. Before the trip, the forecast is checked and if there is any doubt, we simply do not go on a tour.

If we do not see it for some reason, then you will get a refund of 1000 rubles per person. But, as a rule, we see the Northern lights during the excursion.
