It is considered to be the largest national village in Chukotka. Over 90% of its population are Chukchi.

Lorino village is sometimes referred to as the "whaling capital of Russia". Every year, some 60 whales are caught in this area. Marine motor boats will get you to the base of marine hunters; on the way, you will watch whales and ringed seals. Also you will have an opportunity to witness whale hunting.

  • visit the reindeer herders' camp — here you will learn how to use a lasso and taste traditional venison dishes
  • go the marine mammal hunters' base in Akkani village and watch rhe traditional sea hunting for walruses and whales
