3Nicodemus Lighthouse(Nikodimsny Mayak)between Chapoma and Pyalitsa, ~200km east from Varzuga, accessible by air only.

Translated almost verbatim from our friends blog. Same people as Kola Expeditions, www.kola-exp.com.

It is a pyramid made of beams and boards, 40m (120ft) high, with stairs inside, a huge lamp with a small light at the top. Raisa and her husband look after the lighthouse. They started this job recently, after the previous light-keeper shot himself, last summer, because of unhappy love affair on the side, and left a widow and two children behind.
