#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. In Moscow, the embassies of Japan, Hungary, Bulgaria, Albania and other countries, as well as the largest Russian tour operators, were presented the potential of Yenisey Siberia in the field of tourism: expeditions to the Putorana plateau and Dikson, cruises to Dudinka, flights to the North Pole, national and regional holidays, horse tours in Tuva, ethno-tourism in Hakassia.
Anastasia Korol, deputy director of the Norilsk Development Agency, presented the region’s most popular tours to the north. Tours to the Putorana plateau and the Byrranga mountains are the most popular among tourists. Experienced travelers prefer exploratory tours to Dikson and Hatanga, Syndassko, as well as to Pronchishcheva’s Bay and Cape Chelyuskin.
Great interest was aroused by cruise vacations on the Maksim Gorky motor ship, which runs along the Yenisey route from Krasnoyarsk to Dudinka, as well as Arctic tourism. Interactive ethnic programs with visits to the traditional places of residence of the indigenous small peoples of the North are in constant demand.
The presentation was also attended by creative teams from Taimyr, Hakassia and Tyva.
“Unlike traditional exhibitions and conferences, this format is more interesting: it is laconic, allows you to ask questions, build a dialogue. Thanks to a personal presentation, well-known travel products played in a completely different way. As for the investment potential, the most promising direction seemed to me to be a project to create a network of eco-hotels in three regions. The idea fits perfectly into the context of the regions and their positioning under a single brand of Yenisey Siberia”, said Maya Lomidze, executive director of the Russian Tour Operators Association.
