Near the city (the 49th kilometer, but city light does not disturb any more), in the company (in a lodge 4 persons, and if desired, and can be located slightly more), in heat, near the oven and with a cup of coffee in a hand. You can look at this unusual phenomenon though all night long, watching the sky, not leaving heat. The transparent ceiling of a dome allows to see all sky! Waiting for the Polar Lights you can examine stars and look for Big Dipper.
And if to you carries and the sky will flash in color glow, then you to it will be ready for all 100%! 😃 you did not freeze, at your camera the battery and friends nearby in excellent mood - here was not dead that is necessary for success at such responsible moment!
Our group of 4 stayed here for 2 nights in February 2018.
A perfect place to get away from the light of the city and of course perfect place to see Aurora. Staffs are very friendly and helpful but if you don't speak Russian, I would recommend you to have google translate with you to communicate better with the staff and they are very kind and always be there 24 hours to assist you. Hot shower in the bathroom was working perfectly fine.
The owner of the village, Mr. Oleg has also the tour company . Very reliable and he himself is very helpful and responded to my email very promptly . The tour programs are very flexible depending on your availability.
Check out visitmurmansk.info for more detail.This Aurora Village in Murmansk is still pretty new to the market and the price to stay is very affordable compare to other countries in Scandinavia . I would love to go back again one day.
At last that in Russia, there was a hotel in which with comfort, in heat, with a cup of tea or a glass of wine to observe a nature miracle - the polar lights!!!
It is a lot of good points: Very warmly! There is everything that is necessary for a cosiness: the wood furnace which will be kindled by employees and will watch (if you do not want to do it)
The personnel took care of that to us it was cozy and warm. If you want to leave and look at shine on the street, that is warm plaids and warm galoshes which were also prepared by the staff of hotel! The thermos with boiled water for tea and coffee was brought at any time as soon as we asked. And still the fact that it was pleasant to us it is individual thermal mug, for all!
I stayed at Aurora village and was a great and memorable experience, I was lucky with the weather and with the comfort of the place to enjoy this amazing gift of nature, the northern lights. The staff was friendly and the place very clean. I really enjoyed it and thanks for all. I was a great place to stay and the location is beautiful with the close by lake.

Perfect location to watch aurora on the day we stayed. Warm and clean room. Nice and helpful staff. We don’t bring any food and drink to there. Staff arranged paid car to drive us to Murmansk supermarket to to buy food and drink. Besides, Our car stuck on the snowy road. Staff help us by all means to solve the problem. We do feel great and comfortable to stay. Highly recommended
Aurora Village is absolutely amazing! I had seen the most amazing aurora there. The igloo itself is very special, there are only 6 of them so the place won't get too busy. You can stay inside the warm and cozy igloo and go outside when you see the northern light. The staff will also knock on your door when northern light is visible. I spent one night there and see the northern light many times. If you are lucky like me, you can just lie in bed and see the aurora from inside, definitely one of the best way to view aurora! It's a great place to see northern light as there is not much light pollution. It's only 40mins to 1 hour drive from Murmansk, worth visiting if you are in the area!
A lovely place to stay, very clean and warm, friendly staff and a bottle of welcome complimentary champagne is a surprise. 4 of us stay in one room still feel very cosy. Staff are very helpful when we need them to help making some local calls. I’d highly recommend my friends to come as it’s more affordable compare to Finland Igloo. Also we watch aurora inside and outside the Igloo so good luck to all other visitors.
