Expedition Baikal - Alaska

Overview

Expedition "Baikal-Alaska" is a historical and geographical project that discovers East of Russia, Pacific Ocean and Alaska to the modern world. The company "BaikalVision" studying the history of Russian-American Partnership, developed the route of the expedition that repeats the path of Siberian merchants of XVIII-XIX centuries.

In 2017 we are going to pass this route from Baikal (Irkutsk) to Alaska (Anchorage). General distance of the route is 13 800 km. Our transport is specially made for this expedition ocean trimaran “Hunter”. This itinerary will be done for first time in last 150 years. In 2016 we tested our trimaran in some parts of the route: Irkutsk – Yakutsk (3400 km) and Kamchatka – Kuril Islands. However the whole route will continue during about 2 month and consist of 7 parts: Baikal, Lena River, Aldan River,  Sea of Okhotsk,  Bering Island,  Aleutian Islands, and Alaska.

According to the results of the project we will create a series of television programs for distribution on the federal channel and we will publish a photobook.
