Itinerary

Extreme route for ethno-tourism fans (held in February-April and October-November). The main feature of the tour is the observation of polar bears near the village of Ryrkaipiy. The village itself is located on the shores of the Chukchi Sea, on Cape Otto Schmidt, opposite Wrangel Island. It is located beyond the Arctic Circle, in the permafrost distribution zone. A small Chukchi village has become the personification of stereotypes about Russia, in which bears walk along the streets. As part of the tour, you will also visit the tourist center of Chukotka - Egvekinot and the reindeer herding brigade in the village of Amguema, we will talk with local residents and have a trip to the tundra.
