Travel to Nenets (ethno tour)

During this trip, in the company of VICAAR’s English-speaking guide and local representatives, you will discover a unique world of European Arctic territory — the Russian Yamal Peninsula — where native people, the Nenets, and Hantys, have been dwelling for centuries.


Our first stop is the town of Salekhard, the only place on Earth situated exactly on the polar circle (66º 33´N). But the real purpose of this trip is to drive through the Arctic desert to meet a family of Nenet reindeer herders and visit fascinating and remote lands seldom visited by foreigners.
We spend four full days with this friendly family, to learn about both their culture and traditions and the art of reindeer handling. After a short introduction, you will be able to drive a reindeer sledge yourself!
We will taste traditional Nenet stroganina – sliced raw frozen fish.
