A Journey to Russian Arctics on a Car: No Roads, Polar Bears, Atomic Icebreakers and more

Posted on July 14, 2017 by tim


North of Russia is a wild place. No roads, you can’t travel on the car just planes or helicopters. But in winter things change – there an opportunity appears to go on the “winter roads” – roads made of hard compressed snow that magically disappear in spring again This guy used this opportunity to travel to the Northern coast of Russia on his car and see the atomic icebreakers in their natural habitat.  He crossed Arctic Ocean, and besides he met local people who send their kids to school on helicopters, saw abandoned Soviet army bases on Polar islands, Northernmost in the world railroad and many more…

This is a place where 80% of Russia natural gas production takes place. Yamal peninsul, Noviy Urengoi – these are names of those places. But there are no roads connecting them.
