17 Amazing Polar Expedition Along The Tundra

Amazing Polar Expedition Along The Tundra

Posted on May 31, 2011 by team


Some more failures and the column of geologists quickly moves away from the crew.

But even the Ural gets stuck. Then it’s time for a “tank” (that’s how they call this orange vehicle) to help.

In this way several days passed by.

Sometimes there were heavy snowstorms.

The sky is clear, but the track can become covered with snow in a blink of an eye. The wind is not so strong, only 15 m/sec.

Another diagnostics.

Saying goodbye to geologists. They went another way.

Cars with preachers go to Yakutia. “God is love”.

The abandoned station of tropospheric communications.


The channel becomes narrower.

The rivers become small, there is a new problem – the thin ice.

The upper crust is deceptive.

But the card somehow passed the river.

The scenery is just wonderful. Somewhere – great lakes.

And somewhere shining snow polished by the wind.

The closer to Norilsk the stronger it becomes.

Visibility worsens.

The crew is forced to stop and wait.

In the morning the cars are in small dunes.

The mountains are in front. It is the foothills of the Putoran’s plateau. The destination point is near.

At first, small climbs.

And then, quite serious ones.

Some traffic.

People hunt here on the weekends.

Last sunset in the tundra.

The last blocks of ice and snow.

At the finish line.

The final picture.

      I would also like to say that at first when I saw there was 5 pages in this post, I was worried that it might be too much and become boring. But it’s well written so that I was looking forward to reading what was going on next and before I knew it the post had ended.

      There are many beautiful photographs to be seen in this post too. Thanks again. :)

    Wonderfull! I want to do the same thing going from Khantia-Mansia (where I live) to Chukotka! I’ll go through Krasnoyarsk Oblast, Sakha, and Magadan Oblast! And I’ll rally Anadyrsk (from Surgut) in less than 1 month!

    I remain with no superlative… all was used by my ante-writters…
    With this occasion I’ve bring up in my mind a fraze from my childhood. My father use to threat me “If you are bad, I will send you to Katanga”… I never know where it is till now.
