AMAROK. The Path of the Northern Wolf
March 21, 2013 15:48


The Main Route

The polar expedition “AMAROK. The Path of the Northern Wolf” dedicated to the XXII Olympic Winter Games in Sochi arrived in the Chukotskiy Autonomous District. The extreme rally started in Moscow on February 7, exactly one year before the beginning of the Games. The travelers will have to overcome a difficult way of 20,000 kilometers claiming to set Guinness record for longest open-ended off-road route in one direction on territory of one country. 

The group of 12 people on the four German pickups “Volkswagen Amarok” will participate in the rally in the Chukotka Autonomous Region. They will follow the route Bilibino - Pevek - Schmidt Cape (it will be the northern point of the expedition). Then the travelers will go further to the south - through Egvekinot to Anadyr. The travelers will arrive in the district capital approximately at the end of March.

After Anadyr they will go through the villages Ust-Belaya and Markovo to Kamchatka. The overcoming of the route through the Chukotka Autonomous District will take three weeks of the expedition. For today the travelers have already reached the cold pole - Oymyakon village in Sakha (Yakutia) Republic. Then they will go to Ust-Nera, storm the winter roads (Sasyr - Zyrianka - Srednekolymsk - Andryushkino - Cherskiy) and cross the border of Yakutia and Chukotka.

In general, the whole expedition will require the travelers to cross the Arctic Circle several times, to visit the places which were previously considered inaccessible to vehicles.

The final destination is the city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky – the extreme sports lovers plan to achieve it in the middle of April. The main mission of the travelers is to convey the spirit of the Olympic movement and to reveal the cultural diversity of the country hosting the Winter Games.
