The dates of the next traditional dog-sled race “Beringia” have been determined. February 21, 2019 will be the grand opening of the children’s race “Dyulin.” On February 23, there will also be celebrations dedicated to the beginning of the “Beringia-2019”. On March 2, festive events will continue to the village of Esso, from where the race starts to the village of Osbor.
“There is a direct commission from the governor of the province Vladimir Ilyukhin that the organizing committee change the approach to announcing the dates of the” Beringia “. Usually we always did this for a month or a couple of weeks before the start of the race, but from the point of view of organizing the tourist season – this, of course, is not very correct. “Beringia” has long been transformed into a large and recognizable brand of the Kamchatka Territory, which is a powerful point of attraction of tourists to our region. Therefore, today, for the first time in the history of the race, we have approved dates long before it began, “said Alexei Voitov. – Due to the fact that we are announcing the date of the race in advance, there is a certainty that tour operators and tourist companies in Kamchatka will be able to plan routes and implement this tourist product. This will have a positive impact on the quality of the services provided and on the number of guests. ”
