Lake Baikal is one of the most picturesque places in Russia. Tours to Baikal are interesting at any time of the year, but in winter they are especially unique. The lake, covered with ice as clear as glass and seemingly with a pattern painted on it, has long been a popular destination for photographers and nature lovers.

The Northern Lights season begins in the North of Russia. These beautiful, bright green and blue flashes in the sky can be seen in different regions of the Russian North from October to March. Usually this natural phenomenon occurs late in the evening or at night, most often between 21:00 and 03:00.

The Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis are more likely to be seen away from big cities. The Aurora hunters should be prepared to spend several hours under the stars, with plenty of food and hot drinks, of course, so that, if they are lucky, they can take beautiful pictures and then share an unforgettable experience.

In Russia, the Northern Lights can be seen in Murmansk, Arkhangelsk, Karelia, Komi, Yakutia and other regions. And even in St. Petersburg, occasionally the weather pleases residents and guests of the city with this colorful phenomenon. The Murmansk region is the most favorable region for observing the Aurora Borealis. The city of Murmansk is located beyond the Arctic Circle but is easily accessible by plane from Moscow or St. Petersburg. Near Murmansk there are special glass-roof glampings from where you can watch the night sky while sitting in a warm and comfortable room. The polar night lasts throughout the winter in this region, so the likelihood of seeing the lights is very high.

MIR Travel Company is ready to organize for you this exciting trip to hunt for the Northern Lights.
