The Nenets still depend on their traditional clothing, which is made by women. The men wear the malitsa, a cape made of 4 reindeer skins, with the fur closest to the skin on the inside and the leather on the outside. It wears a hood and mittens integrated into the suit itself. When the cold is extreme, they still wear another garment on top: the gus, which carries the leather part on the inside and the skin on the outside. A man is then able to stay outside all night and sleep with the herd, at temperatures below 50 ° C below zero. The women wear the yagushka, which has a double layer of fur, made from 8 reindeer skins and is tied in the front. Finally, both men and women wear boots that reach their hips, with an inner layer (tobaki) and the outer boot (kisy).


It is curious that when clothes are too old or in very bad condition, they do not throw them away, but take them to the forest and hang them from a tree, because they believe it will be useful in the next life.

The Nenets’ home is the chum, a space where they live and work, made of course by reindeer skins, which are placed on a structure of long wooden poles, many of which have a special position and are not interchangeable. In general, in each chum, a family lives, and the number of chums depends on the size of the camp. The place chosen to settle always depends on the available resources: pastures, water and wood for the fire; but also of their beliefs. When the head of the family finds the right place, he sticks the khorei, the reindeer-driving staff, into the ground: that will be the center of the chum.

The space inside and outside the chum is always distributed in the same way. Sleds and caravans are arranged in semicircles around the chum, with the sleds for provisions and women’s belongings located in front of or near the door, where it is also their workplace. Men’s things are left in the back, which is where they usually work too. Finally, the sacred sleigh is always placed at the back of the chum, and pointing to its center, The “toilets” are located far from the camp, and the men are separated from the women.

They often take a stick to relieve themselves, it is worth doing the same as them … It turns out that the reindeer find the salt in their urine irresistible and if you don’t pay attention, you can be absolutely surrounded !!!!

There is very little left for April 15. We are looking forward to seeing our Nenets friends and our friend and partner Aleksey. Everything is ready, and the visa, stuck in the passport.

Who are the Nenets? They are the shepherds of the End of the World.

You see, there is a place where winter temperatures drop to minus 50º C. Where the fifth longest river on the planet meanders beneath the ice, and where far beyond the eye can see nothing but torberas, streams and dwarf shrubs. In this place, a strong and vibrant culture flourished a long time ago, which it called this land, Yamal. Yamal, in the language of this culture, Nenet, means “the End of the World.

The Nenet people of the Siberian Arctic are the last representatives of a unique herding style. They travel with their herds of reindeer, throughout the year, following the ancient migration routes, on a route of more than 1000 kilometers, from the pastures of molsa and summer lichens, in the north, to the winter pastures, in the taiga, just south of the Arctic Circle. A vast territory that has been the home of the Nenets for more than a millennium.

The Nenets live in the polar regions of northeastern Europe and northwestern Siberia, from the Kanin Peninsula in the White Sea to the Yenisey Delta. They also inhabit the islands of the Arctic Ocean and the Kola Peninsula. A territory of about a million square kilometers. The Nenets’ homeland is the tundra, a country of permafrost, many rivers, lakes (about 50,000) and vast swamps. Along the banks of the Ob River, the Nenets settlements reach into the vast forests of the Siberian taiga.

More than 10,000 nomadic Nenet herders and 300,000 “domestic” reindeer live on the Yamal Peninsula, which belongs to the Russian Federation and covers an area 1.5 times France.

With the arrival of spring, the Nenets and their herds begin their journey north. During this trip they will be setting up camps every three or four days. In the caravan, first the head of the family travels, with a light sled; then the children and women, then the sleighs with utensils and tools and the chum, his mobile home, the herd of reindeer and finally his sacred sleigh with its special load.

Sarek National Park is a remote place, beyond the polar circle, that belongs to Swedish Lapland.

A natural paradise, little touched by the hand of man, although in their lands the Sami have lived or traveled more or less permanently for centuries.


Sarek is not only a beautiful alpine landscape, but also a Sami cultural treasure worth discovering. Sarek is known to be a demanding and challenging place for people entering its territory due to its few marked roads, and any other infrastructure such as bridges or shelters (guarded or unguarded).

The mountaineers who immerse themselves in it take responsibility for themselves and their decisions, they are exposed to the weather, the wind, the snow and … their emotions. They will be far from … Everything.

What? Just thinking about it your heart starts to pound and you feel an irrepressible desire to feel that wind on your face, right?


That’s it. Traveling to the heart of Sarek is traveling towards a sense of freedom that you may not have felt before in your life. Be careful because it hooks, when you come back you will no longer be the same or the same. Your priorities may change.


Do you dare to come? You don’t have to do it alone. Let us guide you. We will teach you its secrets, we will cross its heart from end to end, we will guide your steps and we will be by your side when you need us: at river crossings, on snow bridges, when you feel overwhelmed by the weight of the landscape or loneliness. And we will leave you space, when you need to grow or just be.


Traveling to Sarek is not complicated. Despite being remote, it has several well-connected accesses. Another reason why I love the place is because of the possibility of always traveling by public transport. You do not need to rent private vehicles and even the plane is expendable, to some extent. The plane may be necessary to get to the country’s capital Stockholm, for example. From the same airport it is possible to take the train to travel on a night train to Gällivare (saving you a second plane to Lulea for example, and a hotel night). From the same train station in Gällivare the bus leaves for different entrances to the park. Everything connected, everything in sync. It’s great!


If you want to know more about the park, do not stop reading our trip.

Here are some photos so you know what awaits you, although the photos never do justice!


The adventures that we lived there, we do not tell you. We prefer that you experience them by your own. We are going from August 25 to September 5, are you coming?
