Experiences you'll have

Summer tour to Cape Dezhnev

You will go to the farthest point of Eurasia. First you will come to Anadyr, the capital city of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug. It only has about fourteen thousand inhabitants; and yet it is the largest human settlement in Chukotka. You will spend most of your time during this trip in the village of Lorino.

Marine motor boats will get you to the base of marine hunters; on the way, you'll watch whales and ringed seals. You'll visit the Lorino Hot Springs and swim there.

Lorino is the largest national village in Chukotka. Over 90% of its population are Chukchi. This village is sometimes referred to as the 'whaling capital of Russia'. Every year, some 60 whales are caught in this area. You will watch whale hunting and visit a bone-carving workshop. You will visit Uelen village as well. It is the easternmost settlement in Russia and Eurasia. Everything it has is the 'easternmost' specimen of its kind: there are the easternmost post office, the easternmost school, etc. It's the oldest settlement of Chukotka, more than two thousand years old now!

All data on the tour participants should be submitted minimum 50 days before the date of arrival in Chukotka. This time is needed for applying for the borderline zone permit.
