Year after year, this world is getting smaller and smaller under the onslaught of civilisation. The internet and fashionable gadgets, social networks and television impose refined culture of consumption and new rules of life. But there are very few places remaining on earth where everyday life and traditions have managed to stay safe from new fashionable trends, where indigenous people live and bring up their children the way their ancestors have been doing so for millennia. Polar Yamal is one such place.
For centuries, this region was inaccessible to most travellers. The Ural mountains in the west, foul marshes in the east and unpredictable rivers in the south have been protecting this region from the invasion of strangers. Vast distances, tough climate and complete lack of infrastructure have preserved the unique culture of the indigenous people of Polar Yamal.
This trip is for everyone who wants to take time getting acquainted with the authentic way of life of reindeer nomad herders who are trying to survive under the pressure of civilisation, temptations of city comfort and imaginary well-being of modern life.
