With this special excursion you will meet the polar tundra in the north of Kola Peninsula which ends in village Teriberka at the Barents Sea. On our way your guide will tell about the impressionable changes in plant life with elevations of the tundra and the history and life of the Teriberka village which is known since the year 1523.
We will hike to the "Rolling Stones" beach - one of the less places on Earth where the waves of the Sea are able to lift huge stones and during thousands of years polish them to egg shapes -, a beautiful waterfall which falls directly into the Arctic Ocean and to the cannons on top of the cliffs left after the last World War. In winter the waterfall is frozen and looks like a "pipe organ".
Teriberka became more known after the film "Leviathan" from producer Alexei Zvyagintsev in 2015. Filming of exterior scenes for Leviathan took place in Teriberka on the Barents Sea coast. In 2014, he took part in the Cannes Film Festival and won an Award for the Best Screenplay. We will visit some of the filming locations.
We will watch what nature offers more; a lot of polar flowers in Summer, a vegetation of all colours in Autumn (who is afraid of the "Red, Yellow and Blue") and the frozen Arctic land in Winter. In winter the hiking part can be changed by a transfer on a sledge pulled by a snowmobile. We also will see left villages of Soviet time and forgotten fishing villages where people still leave. We offer a lunch at the sea shore.
