36. ADVENTURES IN ARCTIC SIBERIA
Charlie Walker
Wednesday 26th June 16:15 (60 Min)
IPGL Stage
In 2022 British adventurer Charlie Walker spent two months trekking along the surface of frozen rivers and over Arctic sea ice in northeast Russia in order to visit remote-living groups of indigenous Siberians. The journey involved camping in temperatures as low as -50ºC and began just before Putin launched his war in Ukraine. After the invasion began - with an atmosphere of heightened political tension - the expedition culminated in a four-week stint in prison on spurious charges of photographing sensitive military sites. It wasn’t quite the adventure Charlie had anticipated.
