The Far North of Russia has a lot to offer: crack of firewood in the stove, polar nights, endless tundra landscapes and the opportunity to immerse into the amazing life of the northern people. Winter vacation in such a place will for sure be unique and memorable.

The Nenets continue to lead a nomadic lifestyle: reindeer are their transport, food, clothing and home. Nenets desire to preserve their lifestyle, culture and language. If you are interested in getting to know these amazing people better, come to Yamal, the land of the reindeer herders.

  • Gradual immersion in the world of the Nenets reindeer herder. Here, the whole life of a man is subordinated to the rhythm of a deer life.

Optionally: organization of ice fishing on the pond. Optionally: evening dedicated to the traditions and customs of the locals. A brief overview of spiritual culture.
  • Dinner
  • Acquaintance with the life of a modern chum-worker on the Yamal Peninsula. Women also have important things to do - making a home for the whole family. To make a house means to make, process, and smoke reindeer skins, from which they then sew nukes, a cover for the chum. Dressing the whole family from head to toe is also women's concern: You can’t joke with 40-degree tundra frost!
  • Optionally: the traditional slaughter of a deer - for the Nenets this is a kind of ritual that is carried out by men. At that time women are already carving carcasses - the whole family and neighbors are to enjoy fresh meat and warm blood.
