10 Russian Kayaking in -27 Outside

Russian Kayaking in -27 Outside

Posted on January 12, 2016 by tim

Russian blogger, I. Podgorny from Petrozavodsk, Karelia, says that last morning he was woken by his friend saying “you gotta visit me right now. It’s -27 outside and it is still possible to kayak on the river. Let’s do this”. So the blogger took his camera and went on the sudden adventure. So thanks to him we can see the awesomeness of nature and almost feel all that cold around them!

This is the river Shuya, 20 km away from Petrozavodsk, capital of Russia’s Karelia region that borders Finland and Norway.

There is still no steady ice because of the river’s strong flow.

So they got their canoe and went on to the shore. Look at their red faces, it is really VERY cold outside.

The view is amazing.

This is how you put the boat into the river when the shore is covered with snow.

    It’s called a canoe… not a kayak.

    That’s a Canoe, not a Kayak…
    Nice pictures though

    Don’t they make even canoes in Russia? This one is made in the good old USofA…

    • Oscar Goldman says:

      @aldebaran: They make pretty good spaceships in Russia. And yes, canoes, too

      • aldebaran says:

        so… if they make great spaceships and good canoes, why are these guys paddling in an American canoe? Is it cheaper to buy than Russian, or… American is better? Don’t think many in the US would buy a Russian canoe, even if it sells for dirt cheap at Walmart

    …-“why are these guys paddling in an American canoe?”. LOL Because they can. I don’t see anything “Weird”. Perhaps you are a canoe manufacturer. Who knows?

    —-” Don’t think many in the US would buy a Russian canoe, even if it sells for…”. Sure. U.S. buys far more Chinese products than anybody else in the world, and that doesn’t undermine your funny self-pandering, or your weird need to feel “superior”… If that was your intention. LOL.

    Is there any logical reason as to why these 21 images couldn’t be posted on one single page? Having to click through a couple of images at a time is extremely annoying. I just can’t be bothered. Sorry.
