Описание

Chukotka, straddling the arctic circle out on the north-eastern limit of Russia, offers the adventurous visitor something very out of the ordinary. It is a land of haunting, austere beauty, where man has made little impact on nature. Boundless tundra merges with icy sea; stark cliffs swarm with nesting birds; awesome valleys slash their way through rocky landscapes. Chukotka's pristine, largely unexplored expanses seem to drift in eternity between oceans. The short and intense summers offer almost endless daylight and rich colours. The dramatic, freezing winters shroud the land in long polar nights, often spectacularly enlivened by the blazing Northern Lights. Roads are few, railways non-existent. Many of Chukotka's inhabitants are native peoples with robust, age-old ways of life and culture. But as the region's economic and political importance grows, new investment is pouring in and the infrastructure is developing rapidly. Facing Alaska across the windswept Bering Strait, Chukotka has always been a geographical frontier. These days the region is pushing back its economic frontiers, as the winds of change blow also. Visit Chukotka and you'll find there's a new ingredient to its bracing, wild, natural atmosphere: now there's the whiff of excitement in the air too. Chukotka Committee for Tourism
