We are considering self driving in and around Murmansk, to visit nearby areas like Teriberka, Korivsk, and to drive out to look for the Aurora during the nights.
We found very little information about self driving in Murmansk, and would like to ask if anyone here has advice or experience to share. Some of the key questions on our minds are:
1. Are the car rental companies, and they vehicles they provide, reliable?
2. We only speak English, and usually rely on Google Maps to navigate when driving in foreign lands. Will this be a problem driving in Murmansk and its surrounding areas?
3. What are some of the risks we need to be aware of when driving in Murmansk?
5. Overall, would you guys who are from Murmansk or have visited Murmansk before advise for or against two of us self-driving for a few days in December?
Thank you very much.
