The Kola Peninsula is located in the northernmost region of European Russia.
Magnificent panoramas of this northern land will impress any tourist. TRIP TO THE KOLA PENINSULA
The Kola Peninsula is washed by two northern seas, which are the White Sea and the Barents Sea. In the western part, its territory is covered with mountain ranges – the Khibiny Mountains and the Lovozero Massif. The Keyvy Mountains lie in the central part.
The Kola Peninsula became inhabited more than ten thousand years ago. The so-called Sami people and Lop’ people left a lot of evidences, for instance, petroglyphes (stone paintings).
The flora and fauna of the Kola Peninsula comprise rare species of plants, birds, fish, terricole and swimming animals.
The Kola Peninsula was the ancient centre of glaciation. During the Ice Age these glaciers moved to Europe and Asia. The rocky relief of the region still bears the imprint of this process.
The modern nature of the Kola Peninsula is relatively young. The last glacier left its territory a few thousand years ago. The northern climate has preserved the nature of the Peninsula almost intact, as if the glacier had left just yesterday.
Great many lakes, rivers and rivulets, waterfalls and rapids, thin forest and vast tundra make this northern region especially beautiful.
These rivers and lakes are the relics of the Ice Age. Lakes have not become shallow and have preserved the same water-level they had after the deglaciation. River beds have not been worn away, they are still rich in rapids and steps.
