Would you like some refreshment?

Tourists in Russia can visit the Bulus glacier in northern Siberia.

Daria Alexandrova, head of the Bulus tourist area:

"Our Bulus tourist area is unique because, as you can see, there is ice cream here in the middle of summer."

Temperatures around 30 degrees - and still a permafrost remains.

That makes the place special for residents and tourists alike.

Alyona Turaseva, resident of Sakha:

»I like this place because of the unique nature that you can only see here in Sakha.

The untouched forests and the well-preserved nature not only attract tourists from Russia, but also from abroad. «

Anton Makhnev, tourist from Vancouver:

»The sun is bright and warms me on all sides.

I can feel the heat and I'm getting sunburned.

The ice cream is unusual because it is summer.

We have similar places in Canada, but you have to keep driving for that.

Here too, but in Canada such places are even further away. "

So special summer photos are also possible.

The area of ​​the glacier covers more than 1000 hectares. However, climate change is also noticeable here. Temperatures are rising and the ice has already receded. This also has consequences for the local ecosystem. In addition, the region is increasingly dealing with bush fires as a result.
