The 1500 km route extends from Yakutsk to New Siberian Archipelago through the Laptev Sea.

1500 km long tours on dogsleds to New Siberian Archipelago have been developed in Yakutia.

"We have developed a route on dogsleds, based on our own experience of travelling across the Arctic. I tested the tour personally, having overcome the 1500 km long route", - the director of travel agency Herman Arbugayev has stated.

The tourist route extends from Yakutsk to New Siberian Archipelago through the ice-covered Laptev Sea, following the path of the first researchers who studied northern open spaces of Russia in the 17-19th centuries, Arbugayev has added.

As the businessman has told, the company also offers the week-long tour "Safari on Dogsleds" on the area of the ethnographic complex "Chochur Muran", which is located in the neighborhood of Yakutsk.

The tours are already in high demand among local population, as well as among residents of other regions. "Dozens of tourists from different regions of Russia come to us during the season. They go through preliminary school of a musher, learn to control dogs and to communicate with them", - he states.
