The May fun

We are starting to get enquiries about the best time to visit these places. Speaking of May, when the first surge of visitors happens, the average temperature in May is about 10 ° C. However, it can be up to 20 on certain days. Sometimes you can even sunbathe and ride a bike at the end of May. But there is still snow in the mountains so biking and sunbathing can be combined with mountain skiing or snowboarding.

Here is an example of skiing in May on Okatyeva mountain, about 20 km east of Kandalaksha, between Luvenga and Kolvica. Video by Alexander Trunkovsky
