Tourism in Russia is more often a choice between the Golden Ring of ancient cities, or a cruise over a large river like the Volga river; a long journey on the Trans-Siberian Railway, or the most popular cultural-historical-scenic-circuit of Moscow-Saint Petersburg.
The choice among travelers to Russia is predominantly found to be in favor of Moscow and St. Petersburg. And there is a reason why. The answer lies in the vastness of the country and the concentration of its population.
Russia is the largest country in the world and its boundaries span over two continents, Europe and Asia. The vastness of the country becomes evident from the fact that Russia occupies 40% of Europe’s area which is just 23% of entire Russia’s area.
At the same time, the population of Russia is concentrated in one part. 77% of Russia’s population resides in the European part of Russia which incidentally explains its proximity to European culture.
What fascinates the world about Russia is its history and culture, art and architecture, museums and churches, forts and fortresses, and city avenues and squares. And these facets of Russia are most noticeable in the two European cities of St. Petersburg and Moscow.
St. Petersburg had been the capital city of the Tsars for over two hundred years and it shows everywhere. The classy extravagance of the Tsarist period is on display all over the city. Pompous and elaborate in their design, the classical sculpts, the monumental cathedrals, the awe-striking palaces, and the fanciful gardens are staggering sights.
Moscow, The capital city of modern Russia, is the largest and most populous city in Europe. An old city that traces its history eight centuries back, it is also home to some of the tallest skyscrapers in Europe that are also its largest financial centers. The imposing public buildings of the city are fascinating witnesses to the might of the old Russian empire and its current world status.
Between them, the two cities take away a chunk of international tourists in Russia. No wonder, the Palace Square of St. Petersburg and the Red Square of Moscow and their surrounding monuments of beauty and grandeur, are teeming with international tourists.
Others. Beyond the popularity of the two cities, there is a large number of places of interest in this vast country. There are 29 UNESCO-listed Heritage Sites in Russia, 18 of the cultural and 11 are natural. While the cultural sites are almost all located around the European region, the natural sites are all spread over the central and eastern parts. While culture lovers flock to the big cities in the west, more adventurists turn to the east for exploring nature. The cruises on the Volga river take you to the ancient cities, the Trans-Siberian Railway takes you through the breadth of the country terminating at the easternmost city of Vladivostok.
The popular ones among the far offs are the biggest freshwater lake, the Lake Baikal, and the Kamchatka peninsula of photo-worthy sceneries and active volcanoes.
While Lake Baikal is 4,342 km from Moscow, the Kamchatka is further over 3,479 km away. Vladivostok, a port city, is 6,423 km away from Moscow. It’s a huge country. Visiting some of the places is a challenge. Planning an itinerary is a nightmare.
Some enterprising ones do beat them all. They take a detour from their Moscow-St. Petersburg beat and head off to the more accessible Kizhi Island to take a peek into the ways of the ancient cities and a ferry ride as well.
Travel smart with our Russia tour packages from India and make your visit to Russia a memorable experience.
HIGHLIGHTS OF RUSSIA
Peter And Paul Fortress
Palaces and museums, churches and cathedrals, art galleries and theatres; the city is one of the top cultural centres of the world. The grandeur of the buildings that houses them are architectural wonders and the intricacies of the inside are just stunning and brings out the rich cultural heritage of the city.
The regal avenues and the expansive squares where these imposing buildings are all lined up are a loud declaration of the might and majesty of the imperial powers that build them. It takes the visitors to another time of kings and emperors seeking pompous glory in wondrous monuments.
The natural phenomenon of white nights and the romantic boats in the city canals are an enticement too.
An iconic global city, Moscow has been playing the most prominent role in the development of the country through the imperial days to the Soviet era and continues to do so in the current world. The biggest and the most populous in Europe and the centre of political and financial clout, the city is third on the Forbe’s list of having the highest number of billionaires.
To the visitors, the clout is visible in the form of the top-end fashion labels at the Tverskaya Street, the wealthy neighbourhood of Rublevka, the exotic dining places of Presnensky and the mighty Kremlin.
Take a look at our Russia holiday packages for your visit to St. Petersburg and Moscow. If you are interested in visiting Moscow alone, then we have Moscow Tour Package ready for you. All our tour packages can be customised for you.
An enclosure of wooden buildings and a wooden church with 22 domes that are original to the island, is on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Soviets have converted the entire island into an open-air museum.
Think of it. Just one lake provides the world with one-fifth of its freshwater. Located in the south-eastern Siberia, it is the planet’s oldest and deepest lake and a part of the UNESCO heritage.
To the far east of Russia, lies the peninsula of Kamchatka. The peninsula has the highest density of volcanoes of which many of them are active. 90 geysers and a large number of hot springs are concentrated in a basin just six kms long and is therefore called the Valley of Geysers.
A port city in the easternmost part of Russia just 130 km from Korea, is the terminating station of the Trans-Siberian Railway.
Let us at Flying Squirrel Holidays help you plan your Russia tour places and make a stress-free holiday plan for you.
Just walk. Go for a walk on the streets and squares of the city. Take the Nevsky Prospect, the main avenue. Stop at every corner of those grandiose historical monuments, museums, churches and cathedrals, theatres, parks and statues and let the euphoria of the experience soak in. Don’t forget to take pictures of those beautiful structures.
Take a canal ride. The ride is an indulgent fun and a soothing experience while at the same time you are still taking rounds of the city’s landmarks and bridges.
Admire the Museums. Not only the exterior architecture but do appreciate the collections there. The three million items in the Hermitage Museum are a never-ending labyrinth of six classy buildings. Keep some time for them.
Admire the churches and the cathedrals. Get into the intricacies. Though each of the churches has a reverential splendour about them, they are really made of different architectural styles. The Gothic style Chesme Church, the medieval Russian architecture style Church of the Saviour on the Spilled Blood and the most sacred Kazan Cathedral are some of the prominent ones that demand attention.
Take a cruise. Take a day cruise on the Neva river and watch all the regal structures pass by. Or take a night cruise and witness the bridges over the river getting drawn up to let the cargo ships sail through. The Palace Bridge is the best with music accompanying the opening. Be part of the revelry.
Wander in the Peter and Paul fortress. If you have the stomach for it, go take a look at the Museum of Wax and Punishment Tools, The Prison of the Trubetskoi Bastion and Museum of Torture. If you are shaken, go to the Peter and Paul Cathedral within the fortress and pacify yourself.
Take a day trip or a detour. Go to Peterhof Palace and be blown away by the grandeur of the row of palaces, gardens, fountains and intricate interiors. Take a detour from the regular Moscow-St. Petersburg circuit and go to the open-air museum of Kizhi Island.
Enjoy a ballet. Don’t miss the opportunity of watching a Russian ballet if you can. A very large number of tourists arrive in the city just to watch Russian ballet. There is so much more to do. Go underground and take a Metro for a day trip to the suburban Mikhailovsky garden and breathe in the calm.
Walk and loaf in and around the Red Square and soak in the marvellous architecture of St. Basil and all the buildings at the Red Square.
Explore the Kremlin. Go around the five squares and twenty towers and the Kremlin gardens within the precinct.
Shop at the Gum or just gawk at over 300 national and international brands. Idle at the number of world-famous restaurants and cafes or chat with the moviegoers at the three different movie halls in the precinct.
Trek up the Sparrow Hills to get a panoramic view of the city
Watch the Bolshoi Ballet and Bolshoi Opera at Theatre Square.
Stroll through the tattoo salons souvenir shops, theatres and cafes on popular tourist place of Arbat street.
Ride the Moscow underground the deepest in the world, and also appreciate the statues and artwork at the stations.
Appreciate Art Galleries like Tretyakov.

The city is appropriately called the ‘Venice of the North.’
River Cruise and Draw Bridges: Most of the historical monuments can be seen from the banks of the Neva river. Some like to sail and take in the sights.

The Red Square is the heart of the city with all the city’s main streets originating from there. Surrounding the Square are a number of iconic buildings.
St. Basil’s Cathedral: At the Red Square, the fairy-tale-like structure with onion-shaped domes, the picture of which you see along with the Red Square is St. Basil’s Cathedral. It is a unique feat of architecture and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The cathedral is a museum now.
The Kremlin: Overlooking the Red Square is a fortified complex of five palaces and four cathedrals. It is the official residence of Russia’s president and the central seat of the government.

Facts about Russia That Make It worth Your Visit
Russia is considered as one of the most extraordinary and largest nations in the world, with an unrivaled bevy of cultural and historical significance, and landscapes that have actually motivated not only artists and poets but travelers for generations. For so long, Russia ran outbounds under the Soviet system and lots of people still consider it as difficult and inaccessible. Even after all that has happened, Russia has opened significantly, and those who have actually taken a tour to Russia have come back with unforgettable memories formed with their dear ones - whether it is the flashing spires of St. Petersburg, the amazing palaces of the Tsars or merely the haunting and special landscape of the steppes (do not take our words for granted and read genuine tourists evaluations). Here are some of the reasons why holiday seekers from India should go on a tour to Russia:
Location : Russia is the biggest country on the planet, and makes up one-seventh of the world's landmass and spans eight time zones. Not only this, it has twenty-two bodies of water and holds twelve seas within its borders. Its huge and complex selection of landscapes has actually created a fusion of forty national forests together with its forty UNESCO Biosphere Reserves. In Russia, you can find the oldest mountains worldwide, that is the Urals, and the deepest lake worldwide, that is Lake Baikal.
Culture : When it comes to the arts and culture of the place, Russia has actually always occupied a popular name across the global arena. The Bolshoi Theater and Pushkin Art Gallery in Moscow, the Mariinsky Theater and the Hermitage in St. Petersburg- are generally considered to be some of the major art institutions worldwide. In St. Petersburg alone there are 2,000 libraries, 45 art galleries, 80 nightclubs, 221 museums, 100 auditorium, 80 theaters, 62 cinema, and, and over 100 shows, shows and festivals each year.
History : Russia's history dates back to more than 1,150 years unlike India which holds its roots of history in the mythological era. For its culmination of Viking military management with the aspirations of individuals who commanded the terrific trading paths of Eastern Europe, it has been proclaimed as the largest nation in the globe. When it comes to wars, Russia was delved into more than 100 wars in cardinals, and ruled by more than 120 rulers.
What is the Best Time for a Tour to Russia?
Knowing about the perfect season before visiting a destination in advance, is necessary to avoid any sort of discrepancies coming way. Summers are the best time to visit Russia, which falls in the months of July and August.
Weather conditions in St. Petersburg seem to be lower than in Moscow, that is the capital of Russia. July and August are the hottest months that even vary from 18 degrees to 30 degrees. Winter months are generally January with -6 degrees. The wettest months include October and November.
Weather conditions in Moscow frequently vary from 19 to 30 degrees in summers (July and August) and -8 degrees in winters (January).
The Best Places to Visit in Russia
Sochi : Sochi is a coastal town which is situated on the Black sea, at the foot of the Caucasus mountains. Termed as the "beach resort", it offers its travelers a large number of adventures like skiing and swimming in the summers.
Lake Baikal, Siberia : Baikal lake is known to the deepest of all other lakes in the world. It is the prettiest and the purest with stunning landscapes and crystal clear waters making the atmosphere serene and peaceful. During winters, you will find this lake all frozen when you can perform ice skating and skiing!
Red Square, Moscow : Moscow has an admirable center known as the Red Square which in the local language (Russian) means beautiful. The two specific reasons as to why this place witnesses utmost visitors every year is because of its rich culture and historical presence.
Krenitsyn volcano, Kuril islands of Onekotan : It is basically a volcano that had erupted in the 50's and then remained dormant. It is located in a lake that is situated in the center of an island. The views from here is unavoidable for the visitors.
St. Petersburg: Similar to Red Square, St. Petersburg is another brilliant attraction of Russia which is the most sought destination completing the trip to the place. It is known for its museums, monuments, palaces, hotels, restaurants, and other magnificent spheres.
Kazan : Kazan is a complete cosmopolitan spot with people who share diversity in cultures, languages, history, and religions. The place is an epitome of unity and brotherhood for its sustenance of diverse masses together!
Tips to follow for a visit to Russia
Flight Facility: The major international airports in Russia are in the borders of Moscow and St. Petersburg. It is essential to be acknowledged on your part that direct flights from India to Russia are really minimal, depending on the seasons. The flights that move from Delhi to Moscow and Delhi back are the most suitable both in terms of conveyance and prices. The cheapest trip is counted in the months of November, March, and August.
Packing picks: Carry both cash and cards for both may have their individual uses in certain points of time and in certain places. Get your cash converted into Russian currency to avoid unnecessary problems while traveling to places out there! Call the concerned bank before you leave for vacation, so that there is no obstruction while you are in Russia.
Clothes to carry: Clothes depend upon the season you choose to travel to the place. If your trip is during the summer season, then you can carry lightweight loose summer fabric clothes which will be both comfortable and soothing. If you are traveling to Russia in the winter, then you must carry warm clothes. Do not forget to carry ample sneakers, shoes, jackets, and sweatshirts.
Note: If you do not want to stress for the laundry services, then you can carry more clothes, though laundry services will be provided in the hotel where you will be staying.
Mandatory Documents: If you are traveling to Russia, then make sure that you cannot enter Russia for a number of times on a single entry visa. For this, you will be requiring a multi-entry visa. As the visas have validation of 30 days, ensure that your visa is valid according to your departure date and far from the expiration date as well. Always carry two copies of the documents (passport and visa) before leaving, in case needed at any point of time.
Electric Plugs : Russia mainly uses 2 round European outlets. You can easily find an adapter at an electronics shop or pharmacy offline or online. Russia utilizes 220-volt electrical energy (America uses 110 volts) and most electrical gadgets support both. Look on the back of your power adapter to discover its supported voltage. There, if you see the variety between "110-240 volts", then it means that your gadgets work and gives you a green signal. If it says "110 volts", then it will not work.
Phones and sim cards: To utilize your phone during your travel to Russia, either trigger worldwide roaming or check your phone with the concerned specialist. The first is simpler yet progressively expensive. Opening your phone empowers you to utilize local Russian calling services and methodologies. A phone call made thusly from Russia to India will cost about Rs 60 - Rs. 80/Minute, while Indian cell phone organizations can charge up to Rs.200/minute for overall roaming in Russia.
If you want to purchase a sim card right there in Russia, on the occasion of your visit, then you can easily do it, with your passport acting as proof.
Medication is Mandatory: You can never avoid your health while traveling to a completely new place. Health turning bad is inevitable, so it is up to you to keep your medications inside your bag so that you need not deal with the loss of good health during a stunning trip. If you do not deal with any major disease or health issue, then you can carry the basic medicines that are needed, but if you are on prescription medicines, then ascertain that you have carried them all in larger quantities, to avoid risks.
Tip Offering Regulations in Russia
- Though offering tips in Russia is a trend in Russia, but the amounts are smaller rather than in other parts of Europe.
- You can offer some gratuity to your guide who accompanies you throughout the trip or travel to Russia (let’s say, $25 for every 8 hours of work and $15 for 4 hours of work).
- You can give a tip to the chauffeur or driver who transfers you from one place to another throughout your sightseeing ventures (let’s say, $8-12 for 8 hours of work).
- Decide your tip to be given to the guide and drivers throughout your trips according to the categorization of a group tour or an individual tour.
- When you are out for a river cruise, then you will find out a special box at the reception desk indicating you to drop a tip for the crew (drop from $10-15 daily depending on how much you enjoyed your cruise).
Is Travel to Russia Safe?
This is a run of the mill concern, whether Russia is protected and a safe place to visit for a vacation. It's not an underdeveloped nation and the 90s do not exist anymore. Russia has a working power and a civilized, and amicable populace.
Russia is completely safe for you to travel, anyway there are fundamental precaution estimates that you have to take when visiting any nation. To begin with, don't carry your passport with you- either leave it at the hotel or on the ship. Always carry a duplicate of your passport and visa with you. On the off chance that you are stood up to by a Russian police officer (which is somewhat impossible), then show the duplicate of your identification will be adequate.
You can never predict the pick-pocketing activities for which you should always keep an eye on safety measures where you take advice from the guide or representative through the Russia Tour Package or the hotel owner. It is better on your part to not talk to strangers so that you do not involve unnecessary obstacles even by mistake.
Avoid carrying more than $100 with you while you are out for any sightseeing ventures in and around Russia. Keep your cash and card in different pockets, and if possible divide the money with your companion throughout the travel. It is better if you carry all your belongings in zipped pockets or buttoned pockets which keep them safe and make it hard for the pick-pockets to reach out.
Even after so many efforts, you fail to keep your money or any other belongings safe, then do the needful mentioned below:
- Alert your guide as soon as possible, for he or she will take the necessary action
- Make a call on the emergency number and then your bank to obstruct the cards that have been stolen.

We help you prepare for your trip and ensure an effortless and enjoyable travel experience.
What are Northern Lights?
The Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis are a spectacular natural phenomenon which appear as brilliant displays of lights across the earth’s night sky. These lights are mostly visible at the highest latitudes near the Northern hemisphere and appear as neon glows, moving arcs or as thin clouds in the sky. The word ‘Aurora’ is Latin for sunrise as well as the name of the Roman Goddess of the dawn, and ‘Borealis’ is the Greek name for the north wind.
Why do the Northern Lights appear?
All right, let’s put our science hats on! The Northern Lights are produced when the solar wind, which is made up of charged particles from the sun interacts with our atmosphere. The charged particles on collision with atoms and molecules in the earth’s atmosphere release little photons of light, which appear as rays of illuminated glowing neon lights like throwing dye in the sky - The Northern Lights. The science behind this phenomenon is indeed very fascinating and we recommend you to experience this in person on a Northern Light tour with Veena World.
In what colors do the Northern Lights appear?
The Northern Lights appear in different colors depending on the gases with which the solar particles collide. Generally, they appear in colors of green, yellow, blue, purple, pink, and red. The most common color is green, due to the impact of solar particles with oxygen atoms. Blue, purple, and pink are rarer to see and are associated with solar particles colliding with nitrogen atoms. Red is the rarest color to see and is associated with solar particles hitting oxygen atoms but at a higher altitude above 150 miles.
When is the best time to witness Northern Lights?
In order to see aurora, the sky must be dark, clear and with high solar activity. The best time to see the Northern Lights is during the Aurora season that is from late August to March in the Northern Hemisphere. During this time, the Arctic sky is dark enough for the Northern Lights to be visible in the right conditions. One has to be prepared to stay up late to witness the grandeur of the northern lights, as these are best viewed anytime from midnight up to sunrise.
Which are the best places to see the Northern Lights?
The best places to see the northern lights are countries located in the far northern hemisphere like Alaska, Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Russia and Siberia. In the southern hemisphere this phenomenon is known as Aurora Australis, the southern lights, which are best viewed from Antarctica and parts of New Zealand in the months of March to September.
How long do the Northern lights appear in the sky on a given night?
This fantastic natural display of light can last from 5 minutes to all night long, depending on the magnitude of the incoming solar winds.
Do the Northern Lights harm us in any way?
The Northern Lights occur so high up in the atmosphere that they don’t pose any threat to people watching them from the ground.
How to photograph Northern Lights?
If you are like most of us, you probably want to capture the Northern Lights in pictures, after all just telling friends that you saw something never has quite the same effect as posting your travel pictures on social media. Some tips that we recommend are: A sturdy tripod, a DSLR camera with adjustable manual mode, latest smartphone with a good camera and inbuilt night mode. All cameras and lenses will give different results, so a bit of trial and error is needed to find out what works best for you. It’s also important to remember that no two auroras are the same. This means that settings which work one night may not work the next. But don’t let that put you off; experimenting with different settings and seeing the range of results they produce is all part of the fun. But remember to ditch the camera once in a while and remember to take it all in!
What are some interesting local legends surrounding this phenomenon?
The Northern Lights have been the source of many myths and legends since ancient times. Some of the most popular are: Most of the Eskimo ethnical groups in North America and Greenland believed that the Northern Lights were the spirits of the dead. Scandinavian settlers, such as those belonging to the Norse culture, believed that they were a bridge connecting the earth and the home of the Viking gods. Sweden sees the Aurora as a sign of good news and prosperity, promising good harvests for farmers and great catches for local fishermen. The Icelandic people have associated the lights with childbirth, believing that the lights would relieve the pain of delivery. The Chukchi, an indigenous people living much further east from Murmansk in Russia, believe the lights are an area of heaven rarely seen, the home of those who died a violent death. Old Russian texts from the 15th century describe the northern lights as heavenly armies fighting. Some believed that the aurora was a massive fire dragon who would descend to earth while the men of the village were away in order to allure the womenfolk.
Why should I see the Northern Lights?
Of all the natural phenomena the world has to offer, the Northern Lights are probably the most spectacular, because to see them you need to be in the right place at the right time. This very nature of the event makes them more mystical and alluring. It is ideal for those with a passion for exploration and is bound to leave you with a feeling of accomplishment. Keeping this in mind, our expert team at Veena World has specially curated Family and Women’s special tours to Iceland and Russia for all of those wishing to tick off this once in a lifetime experience.
Why should I consider Russia to view this majestic sight?
Russia due to its location, with the Arctic Circle crossing a large part of the country provides an ideal point to view the Northern Lights. Russia has many hotspots to witness this phenomenon and amongst them, Murmansk is one of the best ones. Most impressively, Murmansk is distinguished as the largest city above the Arctic Circle, making it a one-of-a-kind destination in the Polar Regions. When this experience is combined with the visit to Moscow and St. Petersburg, it will turn out be a great combination to explore.
What kind of tours does Veena World offer for Russia?
Veena World is well established and most popular amongst travelers for Russia tours. It has Family and Women’s Special Group tours as well as Customized Holidays - ‘Just the way you like it!’ for individual travelers to Russia.
Where is Russia located?
It is located partly in Eastern Europe and partly in North Asia; it borders the Arctic Ocean to the north. Russia is bordered by 14 countries, Azerbaijan, Belarus, China, Estonia, Finland, Georgia, Kazakhstan, North Korea, Latvia, Lithuania, Mongolia, Norway, Poland, and Ukraine. It also shares maritime borders with Japan, Sweden, Turkey, and the United States. The largest country in the world, Russia constitutes one-seventh of the world's landmass and spans eight time zones.
What is so unique about Russia?
Russia will charm you at first sight. With its rich history, colorful culture and a voracious love for arts of all kinds, this world’s largest country is a fascinating kaleidoscope of experiences. From its art to its beaches, from its soulful culinary experiences to graceful ballet shows, Russia will surprise you with the range of its offerings that puts it at par with some of the better-known holiday destinations. The mystical show of northern lights in winter and bright nights with the Midnight sun in summer, makes it a destination for every season and every reason.
When is the best time to visit Russia?
Russia is full of surprises! It is pretty much a country of all seasons. The experiences that you can enjoy in summer or in winter will make you feel like visiting two different countries at different times. Russia In Spring (March – May) March is the time of melting snow, flowing streams and blooming willow. Spring flowers begin to emerge in April and May, making the parks and gardens of the cities quite beautiful. Temperature ranges from -8 °C to 19 °. Spring is the most wonderful season with transformations and changes in everything. Russia In Summer (June - August) In summer, the temperatures around Russia hover between 11°C to 23°C. The days start getting longer in summer, which means you get more time for your sightseeing. Northern cities such as St. Petersburg experience ‘White Nights’ as the sun barely sets at night. Various cultural events are held throughout the city, as well as evening fireworks. Russia In Autumn (September - November) In Autumn, Russia exchanges its green cover for an orange coat with temperatures ranging from -3°C to 16°C. This is a good season to travel around the countryside where farmers celebrate their bounty with harvest festivals. If you’re looking to do outdoor activities, you can go hiking into the mountains or head to the beaches for water sports. The snowfall starts by mid-November and paints the canvas in various hues of white. Russia In Winter (December - February) The coldest time of the year in Russia, temperatures do not venture over the freezing point and remain between -15°C to -5°C. During this time, you will be rewarded with some stunning snows capes that seem like a Christmas postcard. Winter Festival sees the Christmas markets spring up, as well as a celebration of Russian winter traditions such as troika rides, ice sculptures, ice skating and Russian cuisine. If you move further north to Murmansk, you will be treated to the best light show on earth, the Aurora Borealis. So in a nutshell the best time to travel to Russia depends on what you want to see and enjoy. Veena World conducts tours to Russia both during winter and summer to enable you to maximize your experience to this beautiful destination.
What should I pack when I travel to Russia?
While packing for Russia, ensure there are warm layers, body thermals, sweater/jackets, scarves, gloves, warm socks along with regular clothes that are comfortable to wear. Apart from these, do carry water resistant, warm and comfortable walking shoes, umbrella/windcheater, sun glasses, small torch, sunscreen lotion/cream, skin moisturizer, vapour rub (Vicks), insect repellents, face masks, hand sanitizer, etc. Also, carry your regular medicines with your doctor’s valid prescription and basic first aid kit. Carry sufficient cash along with your credit/debit cards for any last-minute requirements.
Will I definitely see Northern Lights on this tour?
The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and there are many things that affect their visibility like high aurora activity, position of the sun, darkness and clear skies.

Ukraine war latest: Wagner troops 'turn down Putin'- as Russia and India 'sign weapons deal'
"Mud-filled trenches" and "impassable roads" are changing the military landscape in Ukraine, as fierce fighting continues at the eastern city of Avdiivka. Meanwhile, Russia and India have reportedly signed a weapons deal. Listen to a Daily podcast special on the war while you scroll.

We're ending our live coverage of the war in Ukraine for today - but here are the key developments you may have missed:
- The Russian defence ministry is reportedly attempting to recruit ex-Wagner personnel, without much success, according to the Institute for the Study of War. More than 120 ex-Wagner fighters reportedly turned down a 110,000 ruble (about $1,200) position;
- The bill approving Sweden's NATO membership is expected to be debated by the Turkish parliament's foreign affairs commission on Thursday. This could come as a blow to Vladimir Putin who invaded Ukraine in part to curb efforts by Volodymyr Zelenskyy to also join NATO;
- At least one person died and one was injured after Russia hit the Dnipropetrovsk region with three kamikaze drones, according to the governor of the region;
- Germany has said it will double military aid for Ukraine. A draft of the country's next budget includes brings the total to €8bn (£6.99bn) in 2024;
- European Union nations risk failing to provide Ukraine with the one million rounds of ammunition they pledged to deliver.
The US ambassador to Ukraine has attended a ceremony to hand over heavy machinery that will help clear rubble, repair infrastructure and eliminate the consequences of air and artillery shelling.
The images below show Bridget Brink making a speech and then cutting a ceremonial ribbon in front of the gifted JCB yellow diggers.
The machines have been given as part of an assistance package from the United States Agency for International Development - an independent agency of the US government responsible for administering civilian foreign aid.
Russia has been losing a lot of troops, but there are a few reasons why Vladimir Putin is hesitant to draft in more civilians, military analyst Sean Bell has said.
"They desperately need to mobilise more people out of the general population," Bell said.
"One of the reasons they won't do that is because Putin faces a presidential general election in spring next year, and it would be deeply unpopular with Russian society.
"If you have to mobilise more people, you have to explain what has happened to the guys you have already mobilised."
Bell added: "It is difficult to explain that a lot of them have died.
"While it might not be completely democratic in Russia, Putin does not want to trigger any sort of rebellion against him."
It comes as Mr Putin approved new restrictions on media coverage of presidential elections.
Under the amendments, only journalists contractually employed by registered media outlets will be allowed to cover election commission meetings, potentially barring freelancers and independent journalists.
Any coverage of the commission's actions on military bases or areas under military rule has also been barred.
The Russian army has "eliminated" almost all Ukrainian literature in the regions of Donetsk and Luhansk, according to the former deputy prosecutor general of Ukraine.
In a post on X, Gyunduz Mamedov, said any Ukrainian books published between 1994-2021 are viewed as "extremist literature".
He said this year, around 2.3 million Russian books have been brought into the country in a bid to try and "destroy" Ukrainian culture.
Ukraine and Britain have agreed on a special mechanism for discounts on war risk insurance.
In a nutshell, war risk insurance is a policy that provides financial protection to the policyholder against losses from events such as invasions, insurrections, riots, strikes, revolutions, military coups and terrorism.
Getting insurance for exports that have to travel through the Black Sea corridor remains one of the critical issues for Ukraine, as Russia keeps targeting the route.
After a Russian attack on a Liberia-flagged civilian vessel entering port in the Odesa region in early November, insurance premiums have risen sharply.
So, what does this new agreement mean?
The special mechanism will involve 14 British insurance companies and will basically mean insuring exports will be cheaper.
Denys Shmyhal, Ukraine's prime minister, said it will make the Black Sea corridor more accessible to a wider range of exporters.
Poland and Ukraine have failed to reach an agreement to end a week-long protest by Polish truck drivers.
Drivers have been blocking roads leading to three crossings into Ukraine after what they claim has been a lack of government response to a loss of business since Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
They claim their business has gone to foreign competitors instead.
The Polish drivers have asked that the number of licences given to Ukrainian drivers is limited, but Kyiv said it would not consider the demands.
Serhiy Derkach, the Ukrainian deputy minister for infrastructure, went as far to say it was "absurdity" that Polish protesters have not appealed to their government but want Ukraine to apply to the EU for licences.
He said Ukraine was trying to find a compromise but the "situation was complicated".
Drivers continue to block "three main directions", according to the Ukrainian border guard.
Last week, the protesters said they were letting through one truck an hour.
Shipments of equipment for Ukraine's army, humanitarian aide, volatile substances and livestock transports were exempt from the blockade.
The secretary general of NATO has reaffirmed support for Ukraine and said Vladimir Putin cannot be allowed to win the war.
Speaking after a meeting with EU defence ministers in Brussels, Jens Stoltenberg said: "The situation on the battlefield is difficult.
"And that just makes it even more important that we sustain and step up our support for Ukraine because we cannot allow President Putin to win.
"Ukraine must prevail as a sovereign independent nation in Europe, and it's in our interest to support Ukraine."
At least one person has died and one injured after Russia hit the Dnipropetrovsk region with three kamikaze drones, according to the governor of the region.
Serhiy Lysak posted on Telegram this morning that a 72-year-old man is in hospital in a "moderate condition" after the incident.
"Condolences to the relatives," he said.
"Shame on the occupiers who are fighting with the civilians."
A kamikaze drone, also known by Russia as the Geranium-2, is a weapon designed to loiter over a target until it is instructed to attack.
'Act of revenge'
It comes after Ukraine claimed that three Russian officers were killed in a blast in the Kremlin-controlled city of Melitopol, according to Ukraine's intelligence chief.
He called it an "act of revenge".
The explosion happened during a meeting of National Guard and FSB officers on Saturday.
"This act of revenge, carried out by representatives of the local resistance movement, took place in the [post] offices seized by the Russians," the Ukrainian defence ministry said online.
"The enemy does not learn anything and continues to organise its headquarters there," Ivan Fedorov, the exiled mayor of Melitopol, added.
Earlier, we reported that European Union nations risk failing to provide Ukraine with the one million rounds of ammunition they pledged to deliver (see post at 7.51am).
The 27-nation bloc promised the ammunition would arrive at Ukraine's frontline by spring next year, in what would have amounted to a serious ramping-up of production.
But so far, only 300,000 rounds have been delivered from EU existing stocks.
During a meeting of EU defence and foreign affairs ministers in Brussels, Boris Pistorius, the German defence minister, said it should be "assumed" the one million target will not be met.
Later Andris Spruds, his Latvian counterpart, added that the original target should not be taken too literally.
"Well, of course, one million rounds are symbolic. I think aspiration and ambition is important," he said.
Meanwhile, other member states put the blame on producers.
"We have all signed contracts. We've done joint procurement. So industry now has to deliver. It has to step up its game to produce more," Kajsa Ollongren, the Dutch defence minister, said.
Acquiring one million such shells could secure stability for Ukraine for at least six months.
This would provide Ukraine with a substantial advantage in operations and flexibility on the battlefield, according to observers.
It was only Thierry Breton, the EU commissioner, who insisted the industry production target could be met, "but it is now upon member states to place their orders".
He said: "It is true that we dropped a bit, even significantly, our production capacity, but the industrial base is still there to ramp up production."
The bill approving Sweden's NATO membership will be debated by the Turkish parliament's foreign affairs commission on Thursday.
It must be approved before a vote by the full general assembly can take place.
This could be a huge step, after Turkey initially raised objections to approve Sweden's bid for membership, accusing the country of harbouring Kurdish militants and other groups that Ankara considers security threats.
The bid was also held up by Hungary.
Despite acknowledging he expected Sweden to do more to combat militants, Turkey's President Tayyip Erdogan submitted the bill to parliament for ratification three weeks ago.
The move was welcomed by NATO and Stockholm.
A potential blow to Putin
The potential of Sweden's acceptance into NATO will come as a blow to Vladimir Putin.
To understand this, we need to go back to last year, when the Russian president launched the invasion of Ukraine.
One of the main reasons behind the invasion was to curb efforts by Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the Ukrainian president, to also join NATO.
This was a red flag for Mr Putin, as he thought the military alliance was encroaching on Russia's borders.
In the past, Mr Putin has warned that he would be ready to use nuclear weapons to defend Russia's "territorial integrity", and that a direct clash with NATO troops is a "very dangerous step".
After the war began, both Finland and Sweden made bids to join the alliance, claiming that they wanted to bolster their security.
In April, Finland officially became a member .
Earlier today, Finland also said it was going to "take action" to limit the number of people crossing the Russian border into the country.
It accused Russia of funnelling individuals who did not have the required travel documents to its border.
Mari Rantanen, the interior minister, said the number of asylum seekers has "grown significantly in a short time" and they are now looking to impose restrictions or close some of the crossing points along the 833 mile-long border it shares with Russia.
Petteri Orpo, the prime minister, added: "The message from us in the government is clear in that we want to secure the safety of our eastern border."
