Russia - Kola Peninsular - August 2013
What can I say: this adventure is astounding! The route that we take across the forests and lakes near Monchegorsk, The summer track along the ridge between Umba and Oktyabrsky and the old sand road running along the White Sea make this adventure a challenge of Camel Trophy proportions.
Both you and your car will be tested well here in the forests of Russia. We will be crossing rivers with bonnet high water, rock fields and marsh as well as working our way around the edge of a lake. Along The White Sea the tracks are sand with some exciting estuary crossings as well as mud through the forest.
Accommodation when we take it is varied: Kandalaksha is the Gateway town to the White Sea and here we will be staying at an old Party Hotel in its centre. Along the White Sea we have an option to stay in a friend of mine’s lodges built on a hill overlooking the sea whilst deep in the forest near Oktyabrsky we will stay at Frank’s guest house.
