TRIP TO NENETS, THE NOMAD PEOPLE OF THE YAMAL PENINSULA (SIBERIA)

With the reindeer herders


MARCH - APRIL, NOVEMBer 2021
We are in the middle of the tundra. In the middle of nowhere, there are a few tchoums and a few hundred reindeers. That's how the Nenets live, the nomadic people of the Yamal region in Russia.Nenets go about their daily tasks, prepare meals on a wood stove in the middle of the tchoum, look after the reindeers, fix the sleds, sing, and dance their traditionnal dances. We really immerse ourselves in the culture of these people cut off from « civilization », while living their lifestyle, far away from the noises of the city, in harmony with nature.
