The tourism potential of the Arctic will be developed in Yakutia

National Park "Russian Arctic", which is considered to be one of the largest specially protected areas in Russia, will help Yakutia develop tourism in the Arctic zone. The corresponding agreement was signed on November 28, reports YASIA with reference to the head of the Republican Ministry of Representative Yekaterina Kormilitsyna.

“An agreement on cooperation in the use of Arctic protected areas for tourism was signed between the Ministry of Entrepreneurship and Tourism Development, the Ministry of Nature Protection and the Russian Arctic National Park,” said Ekaterina Kormilitsyna.

According to her, the Russian Arctic is the most favorable territory for the development of tourism, because there is untouched ecologically clean nature there. “This nature is extremely vulnerable, so it is important that we, developing tourism, remember about the preservation of the environment,” the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stressed.

The Arctic zone of Yakutia has a huge tourist potential, but only a small part of it is used. “We have some routes that are related to the Arctic, such as bird watching and the northern lights. There are also some exclusive hunting and fishing tours, extreme trips to unexplored islands. But this is only a small fraction, ”the minister said.

The agreement provides for joint work to exchange experience, study and develop tourism opportunities in the Arctic.

“Our national park has been developing tourism in the Arctic for several years. Yakutia is a wonderful republic, there is something to see here: the origins of life, biological diversity and unique objects. However, the only difficulty is the huge distances. But all this needs to be dealt with, "summed up the advisor to the director of the Russian Arctic National Park Viktor Kuznetsov.
