Taimyr tour guides learned to put snares on partridge

The first face-to-face session of the educational program for guides ended in Hatanga.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The Norilsk Development Agency (NDA) continues to organize training and certification of tour guides and guide instructors.

19 instructors-guides have passed the training. For four days, a group of Taimyr guides immersed themselves in the intricacies of technologies for building routes and serving tourists on hiking, trekking and water routes.

The lectures were devoted to the psychology of tourist groups and managing the guests’ expectations, ensuring the safety of tourists on the route and carrying out work in emergency situations. Particular attention was paid to the first aid in the wild and the development of skills in organizing a bivouac. At the workshops, the guides improved their skills in working with a rope, tying knots, organizing the crossing and evacuating the victims.

The final of the first training module was an attestation hike. The walking part of the route ran from the local reindeer skin dressing shop to the Orthodox church, one of the northernmost on the planet.

Then the participants went on snowmobiles to the village of Kresty, 20 kilometers from Hatanga, making stops along the way for ice fishing, checking snares for partridge and tasting traditional dishes of the peoples of the North.

At the end of the training, a final certification will be held. Specialists who successfully confirm their qualifications will receive diplomas, certificates of conformity and badges of instructor-guides.

Earlier, we reported that a master plan for the Arctic tourist cluster had been presented in Norilsk.
