boundless vastness and shamanic rituals
Tuva altai khakassia Nenetsia buryatia baikal Tofalaria Shoriya
The endless expanses stretching from the Urals to the Pacific Ocean still represent a sort of terra incognita even for a seasoned traveller. Despite being notoriously regarded as an immense sleepy land of eternal ice and grey decaying towns, Siberia is, in fact, one of the most complex and fascinating areas of the former Soviet Union: an vast and extremely diverse natural setting of pristine forests, high mountains and rolling steppes harbouring a multiethnic society of Russian culture, Soviet heritage, shamanic rituals, nomadic traditions, and Buddhist glory.
In addition to the itineraries published on the website, we also offer tailored adventures, unusual travel routes and short city trips across and beyond Soviet Siberia. Examples include: ghost-town tours in Krasnoyarsk Krai, ethnological expeditions in the Khanty-Mansi Region (Yugra), customised Trans-Siberian journeys and long drives across the endless Taiga of the Komi Republic. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info about unadvertised tours.
Siberia is so big, it’s almost more an idea than a place.
