    Russia is a hell of a hike, but I'll keep an eye on this. Sounds interesting.

    Have a look at "The Arctic Circle " Lodge & Dive center.

    Couple of years ago , after being dragged to my friend's "back to the roots" trip around Russia, we visited a tiny village and heard of the opportunity to ice dive not far away.

    We called up the lodge and luckily enough they had a room to spare.

    We ended up giving a local the equivalent of 80$ to take us there in his old, half broken soviet era car. It was a terrible mistake as the roads for the most part are broken down gravel roads, the journey took hours and was really uncomfortable.
    We later learned you can have transfers to a different location much closer to a main road, but we didint originally plan on going there so had no other travel choice

    My friend had a blast diving in the ice and came back exalted , i on the other hand spent my time drinking warm coco on the porch after slipping and breaking my arm after just 20 minutes of getting to the lodge :oops: (avoid sneakers on the ice)

    Overall it was a nice experience, we spent only 1 night and i was bummed about not being able to dive in the Ice but im definitely planning to come back one day.

    Rooms were nice, staff were nice, prices were not too bad
