    Dear friends!
    Every summer I see many bikers from Europe (usually on GS1200:)) going through Murmansk to the North Cupe.
    On Kola peninsula there are interesting places for ADVriders and there are different roads - from gravel up to trophy - ride .
    The most known places - mountains Hibiny, pomor villages Varzuga, Rybachiy peninsula and old military roads since times WW2.
    On road to Rybachiy peninsula on July, 6-8 there will be an annual informal meeting fans offroad.
    In Murmansk there is a bikehotel.
    Welcome!
    Ivan

    Hello IvanRUS :D

    We are planning a trip to Nemetsky peninsula this summer. We'll cross into Russia from Kirkenes on the 24th of August. First is Nemetsky peninsula then we go to Rybachiy peninsula and Murmansk.

    Do you know if Nemetsky peninsula is closed for foreigners?

    I hope we meet in Murmansk :freaky


    Best regards

    Hi, EtronX!
    This refers to the area Liinakhamari?
    No problem!
    This border zone, a pass I can order as his guest.
    The application is submitted by me (or another Russian) at least 60 days, you will need a copy of your passport (+ route and information on motorcycle).

    I myself plan to be in August in the Caucasus on the way to Turkey, but I have a good friend, he was a conductor at times ADVriders to Nemetsky peninsula (goes to Husaberg 570).
    By the way, in July, traveling to Norway to Honda Super Cub on a trip :)) can meet.
    Good luck!
    Ivan

    Thank you very much for your information Ivan :D Please send a PM before you go to Norway. I will be up north in July. Please stop by.

    Is there any way I can PM you? I tried, but was not allowed to.

    Best regards

    Our friend EtronX is interested in historical places WW2, therefore goes on Pechenga and Rybachy.
    I advise also to visit the road Parovari constructed by Germans, it in a fine condition, only bridges have fallen :(((
