The round-the-world arctic expedition of Fedor Konyukhov will pass through Chukotka

With the support of the Government of Karelia and the Russian Geographical Society, famous travelers Fyodor Konyukhov and Viktor Simonov will make a round-the-world Arctic expedition on dog sleds dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the republic's foundation, the press service of the regional administration reports.

The expedition will be a continuation of the route "Karelia - North Pole - Greenland", which was interrupted due to weather conditions last spring. The new route, starting from the southern tip of Greenland in March 2015, will pass through the Arctic coast of Canada and Alaska, the Bering Strait, Chukotka and Taimyr. The expedition will be divided into several stages.

It should be completed in the spring of 2017 in Petrozavodsk.

It is planned that during the passage of the route through the territories of Greenland, Canada and Alaska, their foreign colleagues will join the Russian travelers. Part of the way will be overcome on dogs raised in a Karelian kennel.
