Lovozero – accommodation overview

lovozero_accomodThe next planned exploratory trip is to Lovozero, where the Bartosh family, the keepers of the Amethyst Coast shop, move for the winter. Now we are in the process of collecting info on Lovozero. The distance from Kandalaksha is 220km. Doable in one day but not easily. Also we want more time to check the place out, with Bartoshes‘ help if possible. So where to stay for the night is an issue. Here is what Alexandra has dug out so far:

Notes with our first-hand experience with some of these establishments are to follow.

Finally, there is a small but comprehensive article about Lovozero, in Russian, we’d like to recommend: rusrep.ru/2008/19/lovozero/

A private trip to Lovozero is available. The cost of a car leaving Kandalaksha, with an English speaking driver (me) is going to be $250 my fee plus $220 for the use of ther car (50 cents/km), thus a total of $470. A camper and camping equipment can be included at no extra fee. Capacity up to 3-4 persons.
