Hi everyone! and let me tell a few words about myself!

Having big practical experience in guiding and trip organizing for solo, small groups or multinational climbing expeditions: trekking, cross-country skiing, heliski, mountaineering.
Over the last years I am passionate about fishing, so each summer I go fishing to one of the wild and remote rivers in Arctic or Siberia. Fishing also became a part of my travel business: I propose a wide choice of fishing trips on best rivers in different parts of Russia: Arctic, Siberia, Far East.

- ethnic and cultural tours in different regions of Russia and Central Asia: Saami, Nenets, Evenk, and other northern nation; Russian old believers in Siberia; the Koryaks, Chukchi on the Far East, Pamiri and Sogdi in Tadjikistan, etc...;
