Yes, it is possible to chart a helicopter and fly high out of Yakutsk, the capital of Yakutia, Russia’s Siberia, and do a tour along the Lena River, for instance, to the Buluus glaciers, Lena Pillars Nature Park or Pillars on the Sinyaya River.
Further, see the aerial photographs of my recent flight by Eurocopter on the route Yakutsk – Buluus – Lena Pillars Nature Park on the Lena River – Pillars on the Sinyaya River and back to Yakutsk. I was extremely lucky to get in such a great opportunity to travel.

In the upcoming winter 2013 – 2014, I am arranging travels to Russia’s Siberian village of Oymyakon, the world’s coldest inhabited place. The road trip will be done with my constant partner, tour operator Nord Stream LLC (www.visityakutia.com). We charge for transport services only. This way we make the tour as cheap as possible.
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!
Together with the Nord Stream travel company, I am arranging Stalin’s Road of Bones trip on the route Yakutsk – Magadan, Russia’s Siberia, in Summer 2013.
7 days on Stalin’s Road of Bones (Kolyma Hwy). 2 nights in Ust Nera. Extra time in Yakutsk and Magadan.
You’ll learn more about history of the infamous Kolyma Road of Bones constructed by Stalin’s Gulag inmates. At the same time, you’ll discover the richness of the Sakha people’s culture and see the beauty of two Russian regions, Republic of Sakha-Yakutia and Magadan Oblast.
The idea remains simple. We take a van and drive all the way length of 2000 km.
