The history of Magadan and the Kolyma region is inherently dark. As a hub for gulags during the most terrifying years of Soviet Rule, it became home to ‘’the Road of Bones’’, a highway stretching thousands of miles and costing thousands of lives. Prisoners who died simply buried on the spot and became part of the road. To this day, the area is still littered with remote gulags, ghost towns and other Soviet relics left abandoned during the collapse of the USSR.
On our Magadan Gulag tour, we link up with our highly skilled team in the region to provide an action packed tour of this incredible region. From camping in abandoned gulags miles away from civilization to fishing in the rich waters of the Sea of Okhtosk, this will be a tour to remember.
Before or after the tour, you can also take advantage of YPT’s extensive contacts in Russia and arrange additional travel and excursions across the biggest country on earth.
*Due to the logistics behind a tour of this endeavour, a minimum of four participants is required for this tour to happen as scheduled.*
