Guided Tour activities in Northern European Russia
The main reason to come to this prosperous nickel-smelting city is to engage the services of experienced, multilingual Kola Travel, a Russo-Dutch travel firm offering an inspiring selection of Kola adventures including hiking, biking, rock-hunting, snowmobile safaris. Their 4WD trips include one to a middle-of-nowhere village where you can sleep in a comfy but traditionally styled turf hut.
The St Petersburg-based Geographic Bureau offer guided treks. The Khibiny are also a very happy hunting ground for rockhounds.
