The Nenets are reindeer herders, migrating across the Yamal peninsula, thriving for more then a millennium with temperatures from minus 50°C in winter to 35°C in summer. Their annual migration varies from 500 to over a 1000 km.

Every spring, the Nenets move their enormous herds from winter pastures on the Russian mainland, north to summer pastures in the Arctic Circle.

For centuries Nenets have survived the harsh conditions of the Yamal Peninsula. They have adapted to be able to live and travel in the freezing temperatures. Joining a reindeer migration is a real experience living the nomadic life of the Siberian people.
