You should read "Brothers on the Bashkus". Great read on just how bad ass the Russian wilderness boaters are.

If you can find it, definitely check out "A Glorious Way to Die", shot in the 80's or early 90's. Gotta love a crew that includes 2 liters of vodka per man, per day, in their rations, and brings the materials to build a riverside sauna on a remote wilderness run in Siberia.

Hi,

Here's a link to the Siberia video. Those guys are made of pretty stern stuff.

The title is Norwegian (according to google) don't know if that means the boaters are or not. Here is further reading about the river. All about tourism : Adventure Tourism and Recreation : Altai rally.
