Yamalia, ASIA & PACIFIC

The program: If launching yourself on adventures is just something you do, then this voyage of discovery should fit your interests.

On this journey you will see some of the least trodden and remote regions of the world. This experience will reward you with a stunning combination of this region’s amazing arctic environment, the polar Ural mountainscapes and an exclusive insight into the ancient traditional ways of life in the tundra and the life of the Nenet nomads today. This expedition is an opportunity to return to the basics and enjoy exploring the tundra and the Polar Ural mountains.

The Nenet are reindeer herders, migrating across the Yamal peninsula, thriving for more then a millennium with temperatures from minus 50°C in winter to 35°C in summer. Their annual migration varies from 500 to over a 1000 km and includes a 48 km crossing of the frozen waters of the Ob River. Every spring, the Nenets move their enormous herds from winter pastures on the Russian mainland, north to summer pastures in the Arctic Circle. The Nenets belong to the Samoyed group of peoples. Their ancestors originated in Southern Siberia and are believed to have settled in the Russian North about 1000 years ago. With a population of over 41,000, the Nenets are one of the largest of the indigenous groups in Northern Siberia. Their territory covers a vast area that stretches from the Kanin Peninsula at the White Sea in the west, all the way to the Taymyr Peninsula, a distance of more than 2,000 km. Traditionally the Nenets are reindeer breeders, who also hunt, trap and fish
