WE SEEK LIMITLESSNESS.

Inertia is a network of adventurers, influencers, and filmmakers who all share a passion to explore, inspire, and share. We organize group expeditions, match thought leaders to producers and videographers to create incredible content, and empower storytellers. Authenticity forms the backbone of every project we undertake, from our trips to the content we co-produce.

FROM SNOWMOBILES TO FREEDIVING FINS,

WE USE WHATEVER IT TAKES TO REACH THE REMARKABLE.

Our trips bring participants to the most incredible corners of the planet. Each Inertia trip is influencer-lead and custom-designed by our team to deliver amazing experiences through unique access, cultural immersion, wildlife and nature exploration, and removing ourselves from tourist trail.

Trips focus on skills building and harnessing group dynamics to make everyone feel like they are part of a community. From photography lessons to language study, our trips strive to bring a dynamic experience to each participant, encouraging them to build meaningful connections to the region, its people, and its wildlife.

THE LAST REINDEER HERDERS

KAMCHATKA PENINSULA, RUSSIA 

Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula, situated far closer to Anchorage than Moscow, is home to active volcanoes, abundant wildlife, and pristine boreal forests. Spread across the region's vast backcountry lives some of the last remaining Even and Koryak reindeer herders in the Russian Far East; we set out by snowmobile on an expedition to meet them.

Adventure in the Siberian Backcountry

If you look at a map of Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula, you will quickly notice it is much closer to Anchorage than Moscow, and perhaps if it were not for the Game of Risk, many people outside of Russia might have never encountered this remote, yet remarkable, destination. 

Kamchatka conjures up images of pristine boreal forests, snow capped volcanoes and abundant wildlife. Outside of the region's only city-- the fly-in capital Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky-- the population is sparse and spread across a wild expanse of territory. It's from here where we begin our journey into the central backcountry of the peninsula in a quest to meet some of the last remaining Even and Koryak reindeer herders.  

 

Clips and Features

OUR STORY BEGINS IN THE SIBERIAN WINTER.

The original inspiration for starting what would become Inertia occurred in the middle of Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula in the winter of 2016. Two of our co-founders were leading a trip through the Siberian backcountry when inspiration struck.

IN PURSUIT OF AUTHENTICITY 

We love to explore, and not just because of the dopamine-inspired high of adventure. We don't care about comparing passport stamps or Instagram photos; rather, we travel because it's thrilling to learn through experience and interaction. As humans, we are in a never-ending search for authenticity and self-discovery; Inertia is firmly dedicated to that pursuit. 

In the winter of 2015, two of our co-founders found themselves running a pilot project in the frigid backcountry of Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula. Riding the high of adventure in this icy, volcano speckled land, in between a bout of second degree frostbite, a moment of reflection hit: as much as our bodies were physically worn out, we were having the time of our lives.

The idea that would ultimately lead to Inertia was born during conversations with our reindeer herding hosts that night over stew, boiled grechka, and vodka. We left with one large question: how can we harness natural human curiosity and turn that into something that can inspire, educate and empower others? This question forms the backbone of every content project we pursue, each person we collaborate with, and every adventure we create. Welcome to our world, we're glad you're here.
