Rafting and fishing on the Vilyui River

Rafting on the Vilyui River from Kysyl Syr to the Lena River. This is our new route.

The Vilyui River is famous for good trophy fishing. There are meter-long pike in the area of the river mouth, and you can catch a good taimen on the river.

The river is very beautiful and differs from other rivers in the abundance of tukulans along the banks. Tukulans are sandy deserts that formed in the Yakut taiga during the Ice Age. 

Mammoth tusks and bones of ancient animals are often found here.

We are sure that rafting on the Vilyui River will leave vivid impressions!
