Russian Far East

Russian Far East is home to many world class adventure travel destinations, including the UNESCO Heritage Sites of Kamchatka, Lake Baikal, and the Sikhote-Alin range, habitat of the endangered Amur tiger. Siberia’s vast Yakutia region hosts breathtaking landscapes, dogsled racing, and the coldest place in the Northern Hemisphere – the Pole of Cold. Extremes of weather and distance, the Cold War, and lack of transportation infrastructure long prevented travelers from easily getting to these destinations.
