Kola Travel hiking holidays: Backpack trekkings and hiking tours through Monche tundra,
Lovozero and Khibiny mountains in Russian Lapland on Kola Peninsula, Northwest Russia.
The Kola Peninsula, with its mountains and lakes, forests and tundra, is an ideal region to explore on foot. And
camping - preparing meals over open fires, falling asleep to the sound of wind in the pines - is the perfect way of
getting in touch with this wonderful land - and with yourself as well. We offer more day backpack trekkings on the Kola
Tundra's for experienced hikers.
The paths/track are quiete rough and you need good equipment/shoes suitable for these tracks (class C). The overnights are in tents.
We can provide you with lightweight tents and sleeping mattresses.
Our packages include not only hiking and camping, but also transferS (sometimes by boat), and visits to several significant
cultural, historical and archaeological sites on the Kola Peninsula.
