Umba is the most beautiful northern river that flows from the mountain lake of the same name - Umbozer, sandwiched between the mountains. The water in it is clear, bluish-green.
Group size from 6 to 20 people. Camping conditions. 3 meals a day, we cook at the stake, we live in tents (provided by the club, but you can take your own for anyone who is comfortable). We get up in the most beautiful places on the river. We row 3-5 hours a day, we pass the rapids, in the middle of the route and at the end we do the day.
The weather on Kola is quite severe: Umba is located beyond the Arctic Circle and flows out of a mountain lake, the water does not warm above 15 degrees in the summer, it sometimes drops to 10-12 degrees, although in the shallow lakes through which our route passes, the water is warmer. You need to responsibly approach the choice of personal equipment in order to feel comfortable. Carefully read the list of recommended equipment for this trip. The warmest time is from mid-July to mid-August. During the day, the temperature can be from 10 to 20 degrees, at night from 5 to 12.
Northern nature. Coniferous forests cover most of the river's coast, sometimes deciduous trees are found. On the route we will pass the rapids formed by rocky exits. On the horizon you can see the Khibiny Mountains, which are more than 350 million years old, as well as hills and hills. The river often flows, forming both small and fairly large beautiful lakes. Sandy beaches are sometimes found along the shores. The forests of the Kola Peninsula are rich in mushrooms and berries. Depending on the month, you can enjoy cloudberries, blueberries, blueberries, lingonberries, knuckles, porcini mushrooms, aspen, boletus, mushrooms, chanterelles and russula.
The water level is largely regulated by Umbozer, and also depends on the weather. After heavy rains, water can rise, and then its level gradually decreases. The higher the water level, the more powerful the rapids and the more interesting the route. On average, water during the summer is quite high, and the rapids do not differ much in power.
