The governor of the Krasnoyarsk region Alexander Uss met with the Swedish scientist, philanthropist and traveler, member of the Russian Geographical Society Board of Trustees Frederick Paulsen.

According to Frederic Paulsen, the geographical position of Hatanga makes it a gathering point for tourists who want to visit the North Pole.

From the village, travelers can get to Barneo station by plane, and then fly from there by helicopter to the desired point of the North Pole. This route will allow tourists to get acquainted with the nature of the Russian North, and the villagers to create their own projects to work with travelers.

Frederic Paulsen has invested in the Zapolyarye Hotel in Hatanga and has already begun reconstruction of the building. He also bought an AN-74 plane to transport travelers.

“At the meeting of the Russian Geographical Society, we raised the topic of reviving flights to the North Pole. Your idea is a good option for the development of tourism in the Krasnoyarsk region. It is important for us to launch such projects, because they develop the infrastructure of settlements, in this case we are talking about Hatanga, and will benefit the residents who live there, and, of course, tourists”, the head of the region said in a conversation with Frederic Paulsen.
