Let’s join the expedition to the far north of Russia that will go according to the route Naryan-Mar, Voichag island – Amderma.
Naryan-Mar is the place from where one may get to any remote village of the Nenets Area by helicopter.
Naryan-Mar is 110 km away from the Barents Sea, near the Pechora river.
There are many abandoned ships there
Heat station of the city
The city is small and dull you won’t wish to stay there long. Varnek is the place we’ll fly to. Helicopters fly there twice a month, a ticket costs about 230 USD.
