Botanical Gardens Kukisvumchorr Path, Lake Serdtsevidnoye (heart-shaped) the Kuniyok river valley - Monitoring and Rescue Center - the Northern Rischorr path - the top of Kaskasnunchorr Mountain

The route first goes along the rugged narrow glacier valley Kukisvum, and then by the wide and well-lit valley of River Kuniyok.

Then, via a spectacular North Rischorr path, you get to the top of the Kaskasnunchorr Mountains from where you will see the entire Khibiny massif.

An average level of difficulty. About 50 km long, it lasts 4 to 5 hours.

Cost per person, in roubles:

  • one rider per snowmobile: 6000 rub
