Investments in the promising Overland Tourism project in Siberia (Baikal, Altai, BAM and others regions..), widely developed abroad but not known in Russia.
Overland tourism is a budget road trip (expedition) in a group with other tourists on a specially equipped overland truck car along a certain route. Overland Truck is a hybrid of a truck and a bus (in Russia it is a kind of a “shift bus”), specially prepared for budget trips (expeditions) of tour groups.
The project is at the implementation stage of the idea. The options for purchasing an all-wheel-drive truck of the “rotational bus” class have been worked out, and its further refurbishment to the needs of year-round comfortable travel tour groups. Ready Tech. The task of re-equipment of these cars, taking into account experienced travelers and specialists in this technology in the regions of Siberia and northern winter roads. The variants of the most profitable routes for transportation of tour groups are worked out. There is a group in the social network Facebook, in which preliminary applications from potential foreign customers to participate in a week or more Overland Journey and are ready to pay up to 1500 EUR with a still absent and non-working project are already being received.
This type of tourism as Overland travel dynamically develops and expands every year due to the formation of new companies, is popular in countries such as: Central and South America, Iceland, Asia, Africa and Europe with their seemingly small territories for this kind of tourism. .
On the territory of Russia we will be the first in Overland Tourism, and taking into account the development and popularity of various kinds of tourism, not only among compatriots, but also an annual increase in the inflow of foreign tourists to Russia, we have all the prerequisites for the development, expansion and increase in profits.
Problem or Opportunity
This type of services to the tourism industry in Russia and in particular in Siberia as a current is absent. The Overland Tourism project provides opportunities for any tourist to visit a greater number of interesting places and sights of Siberia, while having a stable accommodation and food which is included in the price of a tour (expedition). Tourists are not tied to a particular place and the environs of this place; on the comfortable Overland Truck they change these places and visit more sights. Many interesting places and sights are sometimes not possible to visit without a specially prepared car, but it can be done freely on an all-wheel drive off-road truck, such as a shift bus.
With the help of WikiCards (points of interesting places on the satellite map), tour groups have the opportunity, by common agreement, to adjust the route and, thereby, choose interesting places for recreation and excursions. Equipped Overland Truck allows tour groups not only to move around comfortably, but also gives them the opportunity for a comfortable overnight stay, meals and transportation of additional tourist equipment for interesting and good rest.
