Details Russian Lapland photo tour

Our Russian Lapland Photo Tour will be an excellent opportunity to enjoy the impressive polar landscapes in the Kola Peninsula. We will seek to photograph the beauty of the northern lights in a unique environment, we will also photograph incredible sunrises and sunsets between ice forests or on the impressive Barents Sea coast.

The Kola Peninsula is a harsh and unknown land, located in northern Russia, in the Murmansk Oblast within the Arctic Circle. The peninsula is bordered by the Barents Sea & the White Sea in the East and the Jibiny Mountains and the Lovozero tundra in the West. The land of the Sami people, this way is often called the “Russian Lapland”. 

The incredible Russian polar landscapes will serve as a stage for making beautiful photographs. We will visit, from frozen waterfalls and rivers to round rocky beaches with impressive views of one of the most spectacular seas in the world. But also, forests covered with snow that will leave us amazed. And of course the opportunity to photograph Northern Lights in the Russian North Pole.

Itinerary Russian Lapland photo tour

Day 1 Arrive in Murmansk, Russia

The first day of this tour will start with the arrival at Murmansk International Airport. The group will meet at the airport to begin this Lapland photo tour..
Later, we will travel to our destination for the next two nights, a hostel in the middle of the Murmansk woods, where we will go for a walk in the afternoon to begin to know the area.
From this first night, we will be very aware of the forecasts and conditions to try to photograph northern lights.

Day 2Winter forests

We will spend the whole day in the woods around our hostel, moving to photograph the most scenic points of it. We will explore and be enjoying the different locations that this idyllic forest offers in winter, looking for the best locations to photograph at sunset and the best position for our night session, in search of the magical lights of the North.

Day 3Teriberka

After photographing the sunrise, we will head east to Teriberka, our next destination where we will spend the rest of the 4 nights. A small fishing village in front of the Barens Sea, where we can observe how even the waters of its river, are frozen before the mouth in the sea. In the afternoon we will explore the area to have the perfect location at sunset time, as well as be prepared for the possibility of photographing northern lights.

Day 4Barenst Sea

Today we will capture the sunrise in the surroundings of Teriberka. Its minimalist landscapes and its beaches with round rocks will open the way to views of a harsh and rough northern sea.
We will explore the east coast of Teriberka throughout the day, where incredible clouds form directly from the North Pole. We will take advantage of the sunset to photograph its iconic beaches with rounded stones and we will explore the possibility of photographing aurora borealis.

Day 5Boat Cemetery

During today, we will walk through the old town, where we can get to an old boatyard dating from the early twentieth century. The landscape of this place, will allow us to take totally spectacular photographs of the hardness of life in the place.
In the evening we will continue our search for the northern lights.

Day 6Maloye Batareyskoye

After photographing the sunrise, we will move to the waterfalls of the Maloye Batareyskoye lake where we will spend the day touring its idyllic setting with views of the sea.
We will remain in the area until night if the forecasts and conditions are favorable, to make our last attempt to capture the Northern Lights.

Day 7End of the trip

On this last day of the trip, we will go out to photograph the coast at dawn.
After that, we will start our way to the airport of Murmansk, where we will arrive at midmorning, saying goodbye to the Arctic Ocean of all the beautiful nature of the far north of Russia. This will culminate our Lapland photo tour.

Its an incredible experience to visit Lapland in winter, we saw northern lights the most of the days, and all thanks to the team of guides! They was looking in the nights, while we was resting at our hotels, and coming to bring us to the exact positions to capture with our cameras! Thanks, we will repeat the experience!!
