Popularity of Teriberka
Obviously, this is the most popular place in the Murmansk region. Every day Teriberka is visited by a huge number of tourists from all over the world. In conditions of quarantine, when all foreign travel is not available to Russians, Teriberka took a hit. Tourists from all over Russia rushed north.
Should you spend your vacation in the north?
Vacation may or may not, but a day off, another one is possible. Now we will tell you and show you why. It is not for nothing that so many tourists flock there.
How to get to Teriberka
The first and foremost is the way to Teriberka. The distance is relatively short, only 120 km. Unfortunately, 40 of them are “sliced” by a grader. So the time to overcome 120 km will take approximately 2.5 hours. Yes, and it is advisable to go not on a sedan, but on something higher, because there are pits and bumps on which the bottom can be touched. In modern cars, most of the parts are made of plastic, so a blow to the underbody can be fatal. Better to consider crossovers and jeeps for such travel.
The place where the asphalt ends is marked above. It should be noted that there are no petrol stations in Teriberka and the tank needs to be calculated for the return trip. Fortunately, on the outskirts of Murmansk there is a gas station where you can buy fuel and something for a snack.
The time of the year greatly influences the trip and the experience of the trip. So, for example, in winter it is dark all the time and it will be more difficult to see the beauty, and two-meter, or even three-meter snowdrifts will limit the view as much as possible. It is not uncommon for the road to be swept over, it becomes difficult or even impossible to move along it.
We advise you to check the traffic situation in Teriberka in the winter before setting off there. It is often impossible to get to Teriberka in winter – the road is blocked. Such restrictions can last up to a week. It all depends on the weather. So this is serious, you have to understand.
In summer, the picture is opposite. The road is always open, but it melted with the snow. Snowdrifts do not block the view now, and the night does not come in Murmansk in summer.
Pros and cons of traveling to Teriberka in winter
With all the “inconvenience” of winter, there are pluses because of which tourists come a second time at other times of the year:
- The road is more or less leveled, driving becomes acceptable
- There is a chance to see the Northern Lights, because large open spaces allow you to look over colossal chunks of the sky
- The landscape changes to winter, which in itself is also interesting and beautiful
- The uniqueness of winter travel
Well, the cons are quite obvious:
- Very cold
- They block the road or it is covered with snow, you can not enter or leave
- Large snowdrifts and very often only one lane of traffic is cleaned, and in some places pockets are made in order to part.
- Some of the attractions under the snow, such as a waterfall
