Destination: Yamal

Martyn Andrews chooses the right time to visit the Yamal peninsula in north-west Siberia. It consists mostly of permafrost. He takes the sightseeing helicopter trip around the area, visits an indigenous village, goes down a mine and does some rafting. How is it all possible when it’s -50 degrees, normal weather in Yamal during wintertime? Find the answer in the new instalment of the Wayfarer.
