It's important to know

Personal equipment you need for the tour

Recommendations on clothing, shoes, and equipment for winter tours in the cold season.

Since Yakutia is the coldest region of the northern hemisphere of our planet, clothes and shoes should be suitable for very low temperatures.

In the winter months, when going on long-distance tours, you always need to be prepared for air temperatures of -50...-60 °C, even if you see the temperature much higher according to the weather forecast.

  • down jacket. The main requirement when choosing is the conformity of clothes to the temperature regime (in the mode of no movement or small movement);
  • a warm sports hat, so that you can put a hood over it;
  • gloves and warm down mittens or made of natural fur;
  • balaclava made of dense material;
  • warm shoes made of genuine leather with natural wool as insulation. Recommended insoles are felt or insoles with wool fillers. If it is inconvenient to be in them during the transfer, then these shoes or felt boots must be in stock;
  • a warm sweater and a sweater (thin jacket) for moving, because in insulated cars it is not convenient and comfortable to wear a winter jacket;
  • thermos and light food for snacks on a long trip;
  • mug, spoon, knife;
  • we recommend having special tourist or hunting matches, lighters;
  • to walk in deep snow, it is necessary to have shoe covers or gaiters. They protect shoes from getting snow inside;
  • for stops, we recommend having lightweight seats made of non-freezing material.
