“Baikal-Alaska” expedition is a historical-geographical project rediscovering Siberia and the Russian Far East, the Pacific Ocean and a US state Alaska. The route is mapped across Lake Baikal, the Lena River, the Sea of Okhotsk, the Kamchatka Peninsula, the Chukotka Peninsula and the Alaska Peninsula. The total length of the route is approximately 13 000 km. The whole of the route will be taken on an ocean class collapsible motor sailing catamaran. The first part of the route – from Irkutsk to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky – was successfully completed in 2017. It was nothing if not cool!
The second part of the expedition – from Kamchatka to Alaska across the Bering Strait – will start on the 17th of June 2018! Track news, and we dare you to send an application.
The purpose of “Baikal-Alaska” expedition is to cover the route that nobody had dared to take for more than 150 years, to collect unique photographic and video material in places where there are practically no people and no civilization, to tell the world about great history of the Russian Empire and Irkutsk region.
THE PEOPLE. THE NATURE. THE HISTORY.
As part of the project, we are planning to compile an interactive guide-book, to make a film and publish a photo book.
