I'm Grigory Ilyin - researcher, photographer, traveler and founder of "KOLA.ROCKS".

I was born and raised in the Khibiny. Throughout my conscious life I keep exploring the rich nature of the Kola Peninsula, discovering its hidden corners, studying its history, legends and myths.

I invite you to be my guest!

Those who have ever visited the Khibiny, forever fall in love with this severe and cold, but yet beautiful and enticing land. I can introduce you to the Khibiny as close and interesting as possible, so that you will have the strongest impressions and the most complete knowledge. The Kola Peninsula is so diverse that it can surprise everyone!
