New projects attract tourists with the opportunity to see the northern lights and landscapes of northern lakes, as well as immerse themselves in the atmosphere of rugged cliffs or fabulous snowy forests.

Participants of the Hectare in the Arctic programme in the Arctic zone of Russia are proving that it is possible to create a popular tourist product in the North and offer guests and residents of the region comfortable recreation at affordable prices. The development of domestic tourism is promoted by the instruments of state support. Maria Moskalenko and Ekaterina Korovina set up the Arctic glamping site called 'The North is Calling!' and a SUP station called 'Hyperborea' in the Lovozero district of the Murmansk Region, where the plots were provided under the Hectare in the Arctic programme.

In December 2021, Maria Moskalenko received land under the Hectare in the Arctic programme for the construction of a new all-season tourist infrastructure facility. Today glamping 'The North is Calling!' has 6 tents, as well as utility buildings and a large guest house with everything for cooking: utensils, a gas stove, an oven, a dining table with chairs and a sink. The high season on the glamping site is from December to March: tourists from Moscow, the Leningrad Region and other regions of Russia come here to see the northern lights.

Future plans for the glamping site include the construction of 10 glass chums. Additionally, quad bikes for forest road excursions will be available, along with proprietary tourist, fishing, and sports equipment.
