When we think at Siberia, we have an immediate imagine of a immense sleeping and flat country covered by the snow the whole year with nobody around. The truth is that we have to consider that Siberia is a continent ten time zones large and included between a large range of latitudes degrees that include completely different types of climatic regions as Tundra and Taiga, mountains, steppe, Artic and Pacific Oceans seasides, dry zones and regions crossed by hundreds of rivers, waterfalls and lakes. So that is not quite true.
The exploration of Siberia started with the Pazyryk and the Xiognu populations before the Christian Era but there are still many areas not really explored. We have of course satellite pictures and many local exploration done by great explorer but reality is that on the ground there is still a lot to do.
What we propose is to explore with us an untouched area of Siberia never opened to foreigners since now. The number of visitors per year it will be strictly restricted by the rules of the Reserve created to reduce to the minimum any risk of touching of the Nature.
We will visit this amazing place in collaboration with the Rangers of the Reserve created in 1971 that will guide us in different incredible places. Our team will assist you for scouting, transportation, camps setup, cooking and an interpreter will permit to have a full understanding of the whole information of the local people that will guide us.
