The map shows the starting point of the 2017 race, as well as hostels, base camps, and shops. In 2018, the start position may be changed but not significantly. The map is interactive (you can zoom in by clicking the pop-up description of the object).
There are several hostels and base camps near the starting point of the race.
We recommend the base camp "Vysotnik"as the closest to the starting point, for all foreign participants. The camp staff speak English and have a lot of experience serving foreign tourists.
There are the following accommodation options: 
 - Hotel (inn)
- Cottage (shelter with limited facilities)
- Camping
There is a cafe on the premises  as well as many additional services such as various tours with English-speaking guides.

Please contact them on contacts you`ll find on their internet site.
The Organizers are not affiliated with this camp. You're free to choose any other hostel or base camp.

Foreign participants must obtain a visa to visit Russia. Besides, since the race is held in the State border area, it is also necessary to get a permit from the Border Guard Service. After making a reservation you will be helped with these formalities as well.

Base camps


We would like to emphasize  that the number of places available in the tourist centers is limited, as the race is held at the peak of the tourist season, and tourists are already actively making reservations. Therefore, the sooner you book, the better your chances of comfortable accommodation are.

Mobile connection (voice and SMS) is good at the Race centre. Mobile internet is very slow though (it works only for texts: e-mail, WhatsApp, not for pics). Some hotels provide you with wi-fi but it`s not guaranteed.
We ask you to leave your cars on parkings of hostels/base camps, it`s more safe.
