    Default Kola Peninsula / Murmansk Region Overlanding?

    I was in the area last year for a different project, and was stunned by the amount of off road vehicles I saw in town (although parts of town could quite possibly qualify as off road). Currently researching a possible project documenting off road and overland travel in the region.

    Anyone have any contacts in the Kola Peninsula / Murmansk region?

    Hi, I'm from Murmansk (ok, now I'm in Finland but anyway). Feel free to ask about that region.

    We were in 2007 at the Kola peninsula.

    Frank from Kolatravel has organized everything. If you contact him please give him greetings from Emil.

    The Kola peninsula is a great place for offroad driving. Sometimes you even need an offroad vehicle for regular roads.

    Great Videos! Thanks!

    That brings back memories!

    I think we have to plan for a new trip.
