Considering climatic conditions, geological tourism in the Khibiny is only possible in the non-snow period, i.e. in summer and early autumn (June-September). At the same time, climatic conditions often change to be noticeably different. Even an average year sees natural hazards. Temperatures may fall below zero at night in June, there may be heat in squalled snow. Summer months see the maximum of atmospheric condensation.
In early summer, as firn basins rapidly melt, mudflows go down the mountains, blocking dirt roads. Years of geological development of the Khibiny resulted in many roads and paths having been constructed to facilitate the access even in remote areas.
But the major part of the Khibiny, especially gorges and low areas, is not covered by most mobile operators. Following the safety measures, you can enjoy lots of splendid views and mineralogical finds.
