Venture into the Arctic Circle and discover the magic of northern Russia on this private guided tour of Murmansk. Learn all about its history as you explore its most important monuments!
Murmansk Guided Tour
On the day of your tour, we'll pick you up from your hotel in Murmansk, ready to discover the most emblematic places in the city while learning all about their fascinating history. We'll visit a viewpoint where the Monument to the Defenders of the Soviet Arctic is located, where you'll get to admire panoramic views over the surrounding landscapes.
Continuing on our tour, we'll reach the port of Murmansk, one of the largest in the entire Arctic. Did you know it freezes over every winter? It's for this reason that the port is home to several nuclear-powered icebreakers, unique to Russia, the only country that makes them. We'll then visit the lighthouse dedicated to the sailors who have lost their lives in the area, where we'll hear all about the Kursk submarine disaster.
We'll then enter the Lenin Icebreaker Museum, where you'll learn about the history of the first nuclear-powered icebreaker and its importance for Murmansk and for Russia as a whole.
Finally, before returning to the hotel, we'll enjoy panoramic views over the city and of the Bay of Kola, whose seawall means its water doesn't freeze over in winter despite the Arctic temperatures. Impressive!
