Finally, I am publishing 127 photographs of the “Yakutsk – Oymyakon – Magadan. The World’s Coldest Road Trip” overland adventure travel that was done in cooperation with Nord Stream LLC on the Kolyma Road of Bones in winter 2013. That trip was announced previously here.
In the 2013 February winter trip, we had 8 travellers from different nations (1 Brazilian, 1 Catalonian, 1 French, 3 Germans, 1 Dutch, 1 American). They were great!
Announce proudly the start of gathering groups for the “Yakutsk – Oymyakon – Magadan. The World’s Coldest Road Trip” overland adventure tour in winter 2013-2014.
Let’s have the greatest fun experience on the road trip from Yakutsk to Magadan via Oymyakon in the world’s coldest place!
Reindeer sledding expedition from Oymyakon in Yakutia, Siberia, Russia.
The next week I’m leaving for one-month reindeer sledding expedition with Explorer Mikael Strandberg from Oymyakon to the Okhotsk Sea. We will overcome as many as 600 km through the taiga, valleys, mountain ranges and the cold…
We’ll do a documentary for the U.S. company OutWildTv.com. The project is called Frozen Frontier!
In the previous post I wrote that I had returned from 5-day travel with reindeer herders in Oymyakon, one of the coldest places in the Republic of Sakha-Yakutia, Siberia, Russia.
When we were heading back to Yakutsk through the Road of Bones (officially known as Kolyma Highway), the temperature was somewhere under minus 40 degrees Celsius. Cold weather as usual.
We were driving on a Nissan Patrol 4wd vehicle without any long stops. On our way back – around 1000 km – we spent 16 hours only. Fast. It means the road appeared to be in good condition.
Clean. Partly icy, but covered with sand by road workers. As you know, the Kolyma Highway (including the route through Ust Nera) is considered to be a federal road. So even in the nowhere of Russsian Siberia, roads with such statuses might be maintained all around the year in pretty well manner.
So, if you’re going to Magadan from my city in winter, remember one of my travel advices.
Tip: Reserve one of your travel expedition stickers for a gas station in Kyubyume to attach on the right side of the tube from cashier’s window. It’s a new tradition.
Further, see more photos taken during a few short stops. They were done on February 24th, 2012.
If you follow me on Facebook and Twitter, you might already know and see photographs of my recent Oymyakon travel to Even reindeer herders, whom I and my friends experienced fascinating winter reindeer sledding through snowy rivers, mountains and hills with.
Hereby I am posting more photgoraphs and adding more journey details. I’ll post info part by part in this post, as I have a lot to say in fact. Meanwhile, enjoy 200+ pictures.
This is just my way to announce that La Lupe Production’s TV Show “Climas Extremos” are now available on Spanish TV. Follow La Lupe Production Channel on Vimeo to learn schedules.
Yeah, it were them, Mario Picaso Soriano (left in the above pic) and Oriol (right), who created the Climate Extremes showing people’s live in extreme weather conditions. The first episode is dedicated to Oymyakon located in Yakutsk. Read more…
