Reindeer to ride in Yakutsk, capital of Yakutia, Russia’s Siberia.
Dear blog readers, when you send me a question via the contact form, please, please, doublecheck your email address. Very often typos happen, and I’m unable to reply you.
The following answer is for Kate, who is in Yakutsk now.
Dear Bolot, I am currently in Yakutsk and I am trying to find day tours to see reindeer herders and the Lena pillars (by road). I don’t know if this is possible. Can you give me any advice?
The 2GIS app is a good tool to navigate through Yakutsk, Russia. All organizations are listed, including hotels and guest houses. Unfortunately, the app comes in Russian only.
Very often asked about hotels to stay in the city of Yakutsk, Russia’s Siberia. Praise god, most of them have their own websites. Check out the following list of recommendations that I usually send to international travelers at request.

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.
