Maps of the Khibiny

The Khibiny - is the area of active tourism both national and international.

In July cold nights with negative temperatures can be possible, while the hot weather can change to storm with snow and wind. Maximum precipitation is found during summer months. At the beginning of summer season when the snowfields are rapidly thawing, the mud avalanches are possible from the mountains that can block the earth roads. One should bear this in mind when travelling in the mountains.

The Khibiny are relatively not so high, but anyway fatalities still happen. The main reason to it - is gross violation of safety. Everyone should remember to register the route in the Administration of Kirovsk town and rescue team station «Kuel'porr» in the center of the Khibiny if the route comes nearby. During geological exploration many roads and tracks were laid so that one can easily find way to the remote area. But for the major part of the Khibiny the mobile connection doesn't work, especially in the gorges and lowlands. The Khibiny will present you beautiful landscape and mineralogical discoveries if you follow the safety measures.
