The New Year is the most incredible time of the year. Why not spend this fantastic holiday in the most mysterious, coldest and at the same time largest region of Russia?
We offer you our most unusual New Year's tour. In this tour, you will be able to meet a real Ded Moroz –Chyskhaan, the Yakutian King of the Cold! You will visit the coldest inhabited place in the northern hemisphere – Oymyakon. The lowest temperature ever recorded here is -71.2°C.
The tour begins in the capital city of the region, Yakutsk. From here, you will travel 1000 km along the famous Kolyma Highway – known as the Road of Bones – to Oymyakon.
You will celebrate the New Year in the family of locals. Their kindness and warmth are never affected by the most severe northern frosts. After a gala concert at the local house of creativity, you will celebrate New Year 2019 at the family table of the hospitable hostess. You will see fantastic fireworks after which you will leave for a nightclub at a local club.
In addition, according to tradition, you will pass through a purification ceremony, visit the Museum of Local Lore and the Permafrost Kingdom, receive a certificate for visiting Oymyakon and climb up the observation mountain, from where you can enjoy breath-taking panorama views of the noiseless white expanses of the Oymyakonsky tundra. The most courageous tourists among you will be offered to swim in a non-freezing stream, whose water temperature remains at around 2°C every year.
The purpose of this trip is not just to celebrate the New Year in an unusual, exceptional place, but also to feel the lowest possible temperatures that exist at the end of December or beginning of January. For example, in January 2018, temperatures dropped to -63°C.
The mind-blowing landscapes of a real snow-white fairy tale and the warmest hearts of hospitable locals are a New Year's impression that can give you warm emotions and positive impressions for the coming year!
