Diving in Russia

Quick facts

  • To undertake ice diving, you must be in possession of an Ice Diver Certificate from any international underwater federation.
  • The best time for ice diving is from February to April.
  • You'll have the best chance of seeing the Northern Lights during winter. At latitudes where auroras are common, it is typically light all night in the summer, so you rarely have warm weather and a good aurora. Furthermore, in most polar regions, the weather tends to be clear during the middle of winter, so often the best time to see an aurora is also the coldest. (So, if this interests you, you might like to give the diving a miss!)
