Top 7 Things to Do in Winter Murmansk
December 6, 2020 10:10


Snow appears in Murmansk in October, so by the official start of winter there is already a lot of it! The trees are covered with silver, and the streets are white and clean, which means it's time for some real winter fun. Here are the top things to do in winter Murmansk.

1. Undoubtedly, the most beautiful miracle of the north and the Murmansk region in particular is the Northern Lights. You can talk a lot about how this happens from a physical point of view, but it is better to see and remember this miracle once for your whole life. 

2. Those of you who are fond of skiing or snowboarding will be able to spend a few days at one of the ski resorts in Murmansk itself or in the Murmansk region

3. Fans of outdoor activities will  get a charge of positive emotions and admire the beautiful views of northern nature during short trips or multi-day tours on snowmobiles or dog sleds - this is a real northern entertainment that will give you a lot of joyful emotions.

4. The Sami reindeer breeders are the indigenous inhabitants of the Kola Peninsula. There are currently 2 ethnic villages in the region where you can get to know the Sami culture, feed funny reindeer and even ride a reindeer sleigh.

5.  After a day of rest and walks in the fresh frosty air, you can steam in a real Russian bathhouse in the evening, followed by diving into an ice hole.

6. A trip to the notorious and almost abandoned village of Teriberka on the shores of the Barents Sea will be an interesting adventure for lovers of arctic landscapes and "post-apocalyptic" views of abandoned settlements.

7.  Murmansk museums (Museum of the Northern Fleet, Icebreaker "Lenin", etc.) will definitely appeal to those who are interested in the history of the Great Patriotic War and the battles for the Russian Arctic.

Have fun playing snowballs and enjoy this winter adventure!
