How to travel from Yakutsk to Lena Pillars on the Lena River? The most favourite mean is by comfortable river cruisers like «Demian Bednyj» or «Mikhail Svetlov». The cheapest and risky is by regular motor boats. But the most budget option is, certainly, by the old passenger ship «Mechanic Koulibin.»
How long does Lena river cruise season last? If to plan travel to Lena Pillars, it is recommended to make it between June 1st and late September. If to travel far away like to the Arctic Circle or Tiksi, the span is too short, from June till the midst of August.
