Winter Siberia and the Yamal Peninsula – 01/02 – 23/02 2020

Price: 2,500.00

We are going to Siberia – towards Vorkuta and Yamal.  This region is known for sad stories related to the numerous Gulags -the communist labor camps. Millions of political prisoners died of starvation and exhaustion in the camps. During our tour we will have the opportunity to see several such camps. The camps have been closed for years, but the ruins can still be seen hidden in Taiga. The area is basically inaccessible to cars in the summer. When winter ends, the whole area turns into one big swamp to. By car, you can only get there in winter on the famous winter roads called “Zimniki”, which are formed on the bone-frozen swampy Siberian tundra, lakes and rivers.
