RUSSIA: REINDEER HERDERS OF KAMCHATKA

Dates: March 18-31, 2018
Group: 12 participants
Skill: Advanced
Price: $2,900 USD


DESCRIPTION

Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula jets off the Siberian mainland into the Bering Sea in the North Pacific. It's closer to Anchorage than Moscow in more ways than one. Kamchatka is home to unspoiled nature, thick boreal forests, volcanos, hardy people and few roads. The region's native population is made up of various Tungusic peoples-- traditional reindeer herders from Russia's north-- raising thousands of reindeer deep in the backcountry.

This adventure takes participants into the remote Russian wilderness, travelling hundreds of kilometres by snowmobile, to live with ethnic Even reindeer herders. Conditions are difficult, but the journey is incredible.
