East of Siberia lies a land of extremes, very few travellers venture to. This vast and unknown expanse of untamed wilderness, dark history, odd geopolitical backwaters, weird-sounding languages and disappearing ethnicities represents the true last frontier of post-Soviet tourism. Join us on a mesmerising journey to the geographical limits of North Asia and delve into the colourful cauldron of vanishing cultures, bewitching ceremonies and ancient tales of the Soviet Wild East.
In addition to the itineraries published on the website we also offer tailored expeditions, unusual travel routes and short city trips across and beyond the Soviet Far East. Examples include: beach holidays in the Kurils, epic river cruises along the Lena, and a once-in-a-lifetime overland drive from Yakutsk to Bilibino. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info about unadvertised tours.
We Orientals tend to seek our satisfactions in whatever surroundings we happen to find ourselves, to content ourselves with things as they are; if light is scarce, then light is scarce; we will immerse ourselves in the darkness and there discover its own particular beauty.
