#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Tourist agglomerations within the Arctic Hectare program should be created in the village of Hatanga on the Taimyr peninsula in the north of Siberia to enhance Arctic tourism. This opinion was expressed by experts during the Russian tourism forum Travel! at the Hatanga is the Arctic Adventures Legend session.
According to Natalya Osipova, the Hospitality Industry National Union vice-president, for such tourist agglomerations on the basis of hectares, a special master plan for the tourism development and promotion should be created.
It’s no coincidence that the eastern part of Taimyr, most of whose inhabitants today are small northern peoples, arouses such interest among experts. The Hatanga’s favorable geographical location as a logistics center and the air transport availability also have an effect. In addition, this is the only Russian route to the North Pole.
Recall that the Arctic Hectare federal program began to operate in the Russian Federation on August 1, 2021. Under a simplified procedure, you one can get a land plot of up to one hectare. Citizens have the right to choose plots only in specially designated areas determined by regional laws. Since February 1, 2022, all Russians have received the right to free use of land in the Arctic.
In the Krasnoyarsk region arctic territories, the land plots for gratuitous provision is planned to be increased from 66 to 2.5 thousand hectares.
Earlier it became known that for trips to the Arctic, Russia residents can get an increased tourist cashback of 40 percent, compared to 20 percent to travelling to other areas.
