Tours, tourism and recreation in Yakutia

Tours, tourism and recreation in Yakutia

Our republic is traditionally associated with permafrost and extreme cold. Fortunately, people outside the republic know about our hot summer and places where you can spend your vacation. At the best time of the year, 36 tourist bases in Yakutia invite you to relax in comfort.

How to combine business with pleasure, how much it costs and how entrepreneurs in the tourism industry survive in difficult business conditions, read below.

Pole of cold, Lena Pillars, Samartai, Kyurylyur waterfall, Sinyaya river, hiking in the Momsky mountains, Kisilekh mountain, Mammoth Museum, diamond tours ... The list is endless. Every place - unique views, magnificent landscapes, natural wonders shocking to the eye! The demand for rest in Yakutia is increasing every year. This is confirmed by the results of inquiries that 12 local tour operators receive during the year. This year, guests are expected in 36 recreation places located in 11 uluses. But at the same time, despite its colossal potential, Yakutia occupies a modest place in the Russian market. It accounts for less than 1.5% of the tourist flow.

It is clear that tourists who are accustomed to all inclusive will not come to us - all inclusive. Our potential guests are those who know that Yakutia is a kind of region. Hordes of midges, undeveloped infrastructure, not the best service. Nevertheless, they are coming to us. In 2017, Yakutia, according to the Ministry of Entrepreneurship, was visited by 200 thousand people. And let this figure include everyone: those who came to us on a business visit, and business travelers as part of delegations, and others. But we have arrived!

As one of the experienced entrepreneurs in the tourism business told me: “Yes, Yakutia is associated with extreme sports. But this is bad. Extreme means that your tourists are on the brink of survival. You won't last long on this chip. "

Ecological tourism is gaining popularity in specially protected natural areas. For example, hiking routes and rafting along the Momsky ulus are in demand. Local entrepreneurs, together with nature conservation inspectors, host groups from France, Germany, Great Britain every year.

So, for the development of tourism in Yakutia, the following issues should be resolved: low level of training and lack of work experience, quality of service.

A pronounced seasonality of tourist flows, a high share of the transport component in the cost of tours also negatively affect the number of inbound tourists.

We need an effective mechanism of state support, strengthening interaction between executive authorities and private business. It is necessary to develop and adopt a number of bills to promote investment in the tourism industry of the republic. Particular emphasis should be placed on attracting and retaining young professionals in tourism and related industries.
