Welcome to Lovozero & Around

Twenty-or-so kilometres east of Lovozero, and then 8km south, is unpretty Revda, gateway to a spectacular, rugged eight-hour hike over the Lovozyorskiye Tundry Mountains to pristine Lake Seydozero – holy to the Sami – where you can camp in blissful wilderness. On the way from Olenegorsk to Lovozero, look out for an abandoned Soviet military residential zone. It’s just one of a number of now-forgotten villages throughout the Kola Peninsula that witnessed massive population decline after the collapse of the communist system.
