Family Rafting on the Oka River in Siberia
Vladimir Gavrilov came to us from Latvia in 1992 after a career as a researcher in radiation chemistry. While he was in the former U.S.S.R., he explored the rivers of Central Asia and led expeditions down many unexplored rivers. He's designed and built his own boats, won rafting championships, and recently wrote a book about the rivers of the former Soviet Union.
We asked Vlad to lead a family oriented trip to Siberia this summer and he picked the Oka River in the Sayan mountains. He chose the Oka for it's "true wilderness, excellent fly fishing, and beautiful canyon." He led a trip to the Class IV Katun River in Siberia two years ago and reported an amazing river and even more amazing cultural experience.
