Client Report: Russian Far East – Dog Sledging in Kamchatka

Feb 28, 2010 | Russia, Trip Reports

February 2010

We enjoyed the trip from beginning to end and couldn’t really fault it. The Moscow extension was a great idea. Natasha, our guide in Moscow, was lovely and gave us a great tour of the Kremlin and Red Square.

Kamchatka was superb. We felt so well looked after from the moment we stepped off the plane. The sledding was probably the best organised trip we have ever been on. The snowmobiles went ahead with food and luggage so by the time we arrived, food and hot tea were ready to go! Perfect, especially in -30°C!!! We were given loads of opportunity to drive the dog sledge, which we really enjoyed.

The reindeer herd was lovely to visit and sleeping in the yurt was a highlight – very cosy all snuggled up on reindeer skins with the stove bellowing out heat and learning all about a way of life that it’s almost impossible to believe exists anymore.

It was truly unforgettable and, if anything, exceeded expectations. Thank you for a wonderful trip!
