5 Means of Transport Behind the Arctic Circle

Means of Transport Behind the Arctic Circle

Posted on May 6, 2015 by team

Essey is a village in Evenkia behind the Arctic circle, a beautiful place with amazing nature around, a nice lake Essey full of fish and sunny summer that lasts only two months a year though. All remaining months last under the reign of the Snow Queen, so villagers need special vehicles for transportation. Ordinary cars can rarely be seen here, they are replaced by snowmobiles which sometimes form real traffic jams!

Another important means of transport in Essey is a helicopter. Life in the village fully depends on flying vehicles: they bring food, post and aid, they replace buses. Locals always look forward to meet another helicopter.

Blogger shok-darvina came to Essey with an environmental project “Evenki reindeer” and was surprised to see such an amazing unknown world. Everything seemed new, including the relations of the locals with their equipment. Since the very early years children learn to deal with tracked vehicles.

For them it feels like sitting in a home armchair.

Looking at these machines one may trace the entire history of snowmobile construction…

Snowmobile is like a member of a family, as a horse or a reindeer once was.

They are used as cargo vehicles, for example, for carrying logs.

And they help to bring water home.

    Evenki – nomadic people. Most of the year they are engaged in reindeer herding, fishing and hunting. Many have an apartment in town, but they like to live in special tents made of animal skins (chum). In the city there is no opportunity to engage in reindeer.
