Nenets are one of the few arctic nations which preserve the traditional nomadic way of life. They travel with their reindeers in tundra and live in very simple but efficient Chum lodges.
Today we will travel to Nenets camp in snowmobile pulled sledges or another suitable transport. Travel time depends on the location of the camp (usually about 2 hours one way).
Upon arrival we will learn how Nenets survive in the harsh conditions of Arctic, how they manage their life in a Chum, cook meals and work with reindeers and dogs. We will ride on reindeer sledges and try on traditional fur clothes – malitsa coat. Excellent chance to make lots of amazing photos!
Lunch will be served in the Chum.

Evening 3-hour tour out of the city by car and chasing the Northern Lights.
