The route untravelled by Fridtjof Nansen (active tour: hiking and ethno)

We barely offer any of the comforts that modern civilization provides in abundance… But you will have the unique opportunity to follow the route that Fridtjof Nansen, the great humanist, and traveller, once dreamed of taking, and to visit places that man has not set foot on for a very long time; to learn to explore nature with the help of experienced guides, to see the unique Central Siberian Nature Reserve, to travel by boat and other watercraft.

You can walk river spits made up entirely of ancient Paleozoic fauna – sponges, pearlworts, corals, and brachiopods. Summer can be warm enough for you to swim in the northern rivers – Yenisei, Podkamennaya Tunguska, and Stolbovaya. You can see with your own eyes the unique Middle Siberian landscapes, walk through the rocks, swamps, and fir and cedar forests… Explore the geological history of the Middle Siberian Plateau, observe evidence of volcanic activity. Watch cedar nuts, wild redcurrant, honeysuckle, blueberry, Arctic raspberry and cranberry ripening, and the various herbs that Siberian flora is so famous for, both in bloom and bearing fruit. Discover how rich and diverse the Siberian fauna is.

Gain insight into the world of Siberian Old Believers, who have preserved their traditions since the times of Peter the Great. Visit the local community of the Keto minority people, and observe their culture and way of life.

Meet with commercial hunters, learn about their lifestyle, feel in your hands the hunting and fishing tools that the practices of nature management in taiga have always relied on – their history goes back to the times when people lived in harmony with nature… You will never be the same after your this journey!
