Guide “Kandalakshsky area – the gateway of the Kola Land”

kandalaksha_putevoditel Information about the transport and tourist routes, fishing rules, settlements Kandalakshsky district. Mode of the border crossing “Salla” and the other.

Lots of really useful information but it is in Russian only. However, the author of the guide is our good friend and we will work with her on English-language edition of the guidebook.

“Дикие и свободные” (sic!)  Обещают, соответственно, дикости и свободности. Альпинизм в Хибинах, сплав по рекам Кольского п-ва, туры на п-в Рыбачий (самая жопка север Кольского п-ва), рыбалка (в т.ч. лицензионный лов семги), Ловозеро (саамы), Канозеро (петроглифы). Обещают все необходимое снаряжение для дикости. Еще заброски на УАЗах и ГАЗах в дикие места. Индивидуальные туры. Жилье в Апатитах и Кировске.

Сайт слегка бестолковый организационно. Англ. версии, как водится, нет.

Отзыв от Юли “Только беседа с руководителем – парнем, которого зовут Иван:) Нормальный такой Иван – возит туристов в основном на Рыбачий – на край света. Делал на конференции толковые замечания по идеям военных маршрутов, к которым сам отнесся скептически”.



Petroglyphs of Kanozero



kanozeroSeveral hundred ancient petroglyphs (pictures on stones) on the islands of the Kanozero lake, 50km from Umba. These cave paintings belong to the Neolithic period or Early Iron Age, 3000-2000BC. They depict ancient inhabitants of this place, scenes of hunting and fishing, fish and animals, religious symbols. Scientists think this place could be one of the most important sanctuaries of northern Europe. Presently it is protected as a “historic site”.

Umba. Hotel Virage

umba_virag2,000 km from Moscow, 150 km from Kandalaksha and you really will find the hotel with a double room for $ 15.

No, there is not a bidet and a bar. Perhaps there is not even hot water. But the walls of the room are decorated with drawings of the owner’s children. And the bakery is located in the same building. You can buy a warm, delicious bread right here.
