    Murmansk Region is one of the best places in Russia to go on the hunt for the Northern Lights.

    Looking at or "hunting" for the Aurora Borealis is becoming an increasingly popular type of recreational activity on Russian territory within the Arctic Circle. There is even a special campsite organized some 50 kilometers from Murmansk, which consists of six igloo-shaped buildings with transparent panoramic walls to make the Northern Lights experience unforgettable.
