Most of Murmansk Oblast is in the Arctic Circle. The Kola Peninsula is an area of endless wild mountains, tundra that is open to all winds, taiga forest and countless rivers and lakes. You can see the Northern Lights here, which last from a couple of hours to several days. Travelers are struck by the summer polar day, when the sun never sets over the horizon, and the polar night when the sun doesn't rise at all. It lasts from late November to the middle of January.More about the region
