Suggested trips to Oymyakon / Yakutia? (Russia)

Travel Forums Europe Suggested trips to Oymyakon / Yakutia? (Russia)

Hello, I plan to visit Oymyakon the coldest village on Earth in January, and needless to say I can not organize it all by myself so I plan to go with a organized tour.

I did some Google search of tour operators, and I am quite conscious that it should not be crazy expensive, and since I aim for adventure I would rather go for a less comfortable but genuine tour, where it is pretty much expected that it can be a bit rough.

So far I found this promising but I would really appreciate suggestions and feedback:

This seems more budgetoriented, anyone has any experience?

Any suggestion is appreciated!

I’ve never been there, but a friend of mine visited it last year. He liked the trip, but he was there in late November and it was extremely cold there. He is from California, so it’s hard to stand that climat. But the nature there is breathtaking.

Well, I plan to go mid January just because I have been told that it is the coldest month and if I am lucky I can experience -60 degrees. :)
You do not know any details if your friend did pick a specific organizer, or did he go himself?
