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.
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!
