Travel to Yakutia

Yakutia is a huge territory in the north-east of Russia, little studied and little known. Those few who come here become true discoverers of the pristine nature and unique culture of the northern people.   

The Republic of Sakha is one of the most "cruel" to a tourist, but at the same time beautiful regions of Russia. More than 700 thousand rivers and rivers are located here (among them the largest navigable Lena, Alan, Kolyma, Yana, Vilyuy) and more than 800 thousand lakes. The republic includes 4 geographical zones at once - Arctic deserts, tundra, forest tundra, taiga forests. Here you can observe in the natural environment of bears, deer, elk, ride a dog sled, fish, enjoy the spectacle of the northern lights.

Yakutia is striking in its size. This is the largest region of Russia. If Yakutia were a separate state, it would be the 6th largest in the world. The climate is sharply continental. In summer, there is thirty-degree heat, and in winter fifty-degree frosts crack. When is the best time to travel to Yakutia? In summer, the best months for trips to Yakutia are July and August, in winter - March.

Oymyakon Travel

Yakutia is famous for its natural attractions: Lena Pillars, the Pole of Cold, Lena River. Tours to Oymyakon and cruises to Lena are one of the exclusive Discovery Russia offers, and one of the most popular souvenirs from Yakutia are locally mined diamonds, mammoth bone products and national silver jewelry. Verkhoyansk and Oymakon keep rivaling for a title of the world's coldest place. Come to experience both - and compare yourself!

Yakutia amazes by the beauty of its nature, by national color and cuisine. Museums of Yakutsk have excellent modern expositions. In Yakutsk restaurants you can try stroganina, venison prepared in various ways, conin and beef (Yakuts - pastoralists).

Yakutia highlights

The history of Yakutia as part of the Russian Empire dates back to the first half of the 17th century. Until the beginning of the 20th century, there was an exiled region, and in Soviet times, large-scale development of the territory by geologists began - from Aldan gold to Mirny diamonds, from uranium deposits in the climatically soft south of Yakutia to tin-bearing placers of the Arctic Novosibirsk Islands on the Northern Sea Route. During any trip to the territory of Yakutia, we will most likely meet dilapidated, abandoned objects of Stalin's camps or traces of exploration activities.

On the wast territory of the Sakha Republic we organize excellent fishing or hunting, there is really a lot of interesting here for those fond of active recreation and for those who want to contemplate northern nature, the Arctic or explore local history. You can find a mammoth tusk in the flooded flood bank of the river, you can enjoy artifacts from the recent Soviet past, and you can observe the modern life of cities, towns and national villages built on permafrost.
