The total distance is 170km, of which the first 80, till the road forks to Teriberka, is a normal asphalt highway. Then, till Tumanny, the dirt road is still passable. There is even a bus connecting Tumanny and Murmansk, leaving Murmansk at 6pm on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, and back from Tumanny at 7am Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Monday.

Adventures start after Tumanny. Here is how the last 40km of the road look like in the summer, when roads are easiest to travel.

Expect to pay around 6000 roubles ($100) for a taxi ride from Murmansk to Dalniye Zelentsy.

What can attract one there? There is a diving center there, a biological station, and a corrosion station, of which I may write later. And local fishing is a legend!

  1. А где указание автора фотографий, который делал их ценой собственной отбитой на ухабах ж.?

    • No, that’s “pre-border zone”, off limit to foreigners unless you get a permit ahead of time through a local travel agency.

      Teriberka though is accessible.

    • Most common, according to Alexandra, are cod, haddock, navaga, and pollock, with an occasional crab thrown in. Also lumpfish and turbot..
