Discover Yakutia - a faraway place that plays host to ethereal polar nights and the northern lights, permafrost tundra and vast expanses of taiga forest.

About 40% of Yakutia lies above the Arctic Circle, and much of it remains wild, pristine and largely unspoiled by development. One of Siberia’s most ethnically diverse regions, Yakutia is home to the Turkic-speaking Yakuts, many of whom still practice shamanism and nomadic lifestyles. The region is blessed with spectacular wildlife and is renowned for producing some of the cleanest diamonds on Earth.

The land of Yakutia covers an area of more than 3 million square kilometres, making it roughly the size of India despite having a population smaller than that of the US state of Rhode Island.
