Dermot Somers, travelling by reindeer sled with a family of nomads, heads deep into Northern Siberia on the greatest traditional journey left on earth.

Every year, an irrepressible bunch of Siberian natives, the Nenets, travel by reindeer from their winter forest homes, 800 kms north to the Arctic Ocean and back. The journey is the last of its kind. Possessing the most intact culture left in the Arctic, the Nenets live in tents of reindeer skin, eat raw reindeer meat and travel on handmade wooden sleds.
