Driving from Kirkenes to Murmansk

by mbennet48 Online Now May 6, 2009 at 3:01 PM

I would appreciate some advice about driving from Kirkenes to Murmansk this August, please? Are the signs in English? How do I get a map of Murmansk for driving? Any problems getting fuel? What roads do I take? I understand that the military road is sometimes closed. From where would I rent a car in Kirkenes?

    Maps you can get in stores and you can check on-line maps as well. Roads on the Russian side are not well maintained. However, I am almost sure you cannot take Norwegian rental car over to the Russian side.

    I just talked to Avis. They say we can rent a car and drive it to Murmansk. If you have done this, what language is on the signposts please?
