MAGADAN 2. Kolyma highway

Group size



9 days





Trip overview
For a real traveler, the capital of Kolyma Magadan is an amazing place, one of the most interesting in Russia. You can fall in love with this tragic fate recklessly if you take a walk along Nagaev’s bay at least once, climb hills and, most importantly, have a talk to Magadans — people who combine intelligence and the ability to survive in the most severe conditions, generosity and enterprise, independence and ability to be friends.
If you drive into Magadan along the Kolyma highway, the contrast is striking: after the coldest inhabited places on the planet and dilapidated villages of gold miners, you find yourself in a city with brightly painted houses.

Season:  May — September
Duration: 9 days
Maximum number of people in a group: 8-10
