About Khibiny

Khibiny mountains are the largest mountains of the Kola Peninsula, dating back about 350 million years.

The mountains are rich in different stones and minerals, many of which can be found nowhere else in the world.

At the foot of the mountains there are two cities - Apatity and Kirovsk, and along the western sides of the Khibiny you can see beautiful lake Imandra.

You will enjoy the majestic mountain sceneries and visit the Mineralogy Museum which has a unique collection of minerals from all over the world.
