Experiences you'll have

Kayaking, trekking and fishing on the Putorana Plateau

We invite you to a glamping located in one of the most hard-to-reach corners of the Putorana Plateau – Lake Sobachie (Russsian for "Dog"). In summer the place is accessible only by helicopter or by airboat. These transport vehicles are friendly to the Lake ecosystem, inhabited by many fish species included in Red Data List.

You will stay at the unique glamping on the plateau, in cozy dome tents with a panoramic view to Lake Sobachie, and explore the most scenic places of the Putorana Nature reserve. The total absence of people on the lake will allow you to immerse deeply into the atmosphere of wild nature.

Highlights of the journey:

  • sport fishing, featuring "catch and let it go" principle, without harming fish population
  • trekking to Dva brata (Russian for "Two brothers") and Khege waterfalls with swimming in the waterfalls basin
  • climbing to Bilde and Akyrma Mountains, which offer fascinating views of Lakes Sobachie, Glubokoye (Russian for "Deep") and Nakomyaken 
  • kayaking in scenic fjords of Lake Sobachie
  • a tour around the historical centre of Norilsk city

 

An optional helicopter tour to the Plateau’s highest waterfalls and deepest canyons is available for additional cost. Due to the fact, that Lake Sobachie is located closer to the Plateau’s centre, the cost of such an excursion will be lower than similar options with a start from Lake Lama, which is another popular accomodation option on the Putorana Plateau.
