Frequently Asked Questions

What clothing do I need to bring?

In July the weather is usually quite warm during the day, but temperatures can drop significantly overnight. We recommend bringing both a lightweight and thicker down (or equivalent) jacket. Multiple layers are recommended so that you can dress for different temperatures. You can hire your outer layers from us if you arrive and find that it’s colder than expected!

In the winter the temperatures may drop as low as -50°C so appropriate Arctic cold-weather gear is essential for fishing out on the ice. We will provide a recommended packing list and you can hire gear from us too.

If you would like to visit the Banya in Salekhard then please ensure that you bring your swimsuit.

Do I need to bring my own fishing equipment?

As this is a trip for people who love fishing, we assume that you will bring your own gear with you, but we can also provide fishing equipment as needed. Please let us know if there is something specific that you would like us to source for you. If you would like advice regarding what to bring then email, WhatsApp or call us prior to the trip.

Can I add any additional days or activities to the tour?

You can book a trip to the Banya in Salekhard in advance – this is a mixed banya and you should bring swimwear if you book this option.

We’re always happy to discuss any further customisations to trips. Please email or call us with additional queries.

Can you cater for dietary requirements?

Please inform us at the time of booking so that we can ensure we are able to source the required ingredients. Please be aware that meat and fish will be served at mealtimes.
