Taimyr tourist portal to be launched in autumn

August 11, 2022

At the Norilsk Development Agency, the IV North Indigenous Peoples Youth Forum participants discussed the prospects for the ethnic tourism and the hospitality industry development.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. In recent years, Arctic tourism has become increasingly popular in the world.

“We understand why. Because the North is an original territory, many-sided, with a complex structure. It is necessary to develop this complex industry systematically. In order to coordinate and support entrepreneurs in the field of tourism in 2019, the tourist and recreational cluster Arctic was created on our territory, which already includes about 70 residents against 18 at the beginning”, said Anzhela Tkachenko, specialist in the NDA Tourism direction.

In addition, with the active participation of the NDA, a large document has been developed – a master plan for the Arctic tourist cluster, describing the tourist opportunities of the territory, the main magnets for guests, and the challenges facing cities and towns.

All existing tour operator offers on the market will be united by a digital platform, which the NDA will launch in the fall of 2022. The portal will allow travelers to make routes based on their own interests, accumulate media projects about the North, educational trainings for the tourist community and courses aimed at preserving traditional crafts and pumping masters of arts and crafts, as well as large-scale events that help popularize the culture of the indigenous population.

One of such events is the Big Argish ethnic festival, which has been held in Norilsk for more than ten years.

This year the festival will be dedicated to expeditions to remote villages of Taimyr. The Big Argish program is filled with unique photo and video content about life in the villages and preserved traditions, lectures from the expedition members and meetings with representatives of indigenous peoples, performances by creative teams from the villages, including in collaboration with local musicians. Festival events will be held in two cities – Dudinka and Norilsk.

Recall that the participants of the IV Youth Forum are developing social ideas useful for Taimyr, in Hatanga they proposed to create tourist agglomerations, in Dudinka on the territory of 300 thousand square meters they began to build the Legends of the Tundra ethnic cultural park, and a schoolgirl from Zheleznogorsk fulfilled her dream of traveling to Taimyr.
